The hotel is quite nice. Our room was great, the pool was very nice. Food was great. Our only issue is that our credit card was charged twice for our stay. I tried to contact the hotel a few times but had no response. Luckily i booked through booking.com and they intervened and managed to get a refund very quickly.

The bus driver then guided us towards a window where the older official sat down and told us just to hand our passports over. Without another question, or buying the flights, our passports were just stamped within seconds and handed back to us. The driver then escorted us, with our bags, into the customs hall and we were just waved back ...
... that he is still active on site. It must be his passion for coffee, which is keeping him young!
Our tour took 3 hours and we learned a lot.
The golden grains of the coffee fruits are protected by 3 different shells. All of them have to be taken off before the roasting process can start.
Imperfect coffee beans are carefully sorted out. A great deal of the sorting process is done by hand. ...
... been instructed to wear dark clothes and we were not to use headlamps or flashlights, nor were electronic devices of any kind allowed, including cameras—only the guide would use a red light. We walked quietly for about half an hour on the dark beach, our bare feet ringed in sparks of phosphorescence while the ocean, dark beyond the surf, loomed white in the foreground as the waves rose and fell on the beach with that eternal ocean sound. A few stars showed, but lightning ...
