... s place. It's a very nice and new hotel, with hot shower (woohoo!), hairdryer (woohoo!) free breakfast, they let me borrow their umbrella (we ran out of sunblock after our beach destinations, and I couldn't afford to get any darker), and they cleaned the room everyday. Awesome customer service.

Hundreds of people were down there -babies through to grandparents, kids swimming and diving into the sea, men setting up out-riggers and teams of boys beginning their dragon boat training, mum and grandma's feeding ...
