... rang. Very sorry but rain is coming so A la carte reservation cancelled. Who knew the restaurant was outdoors. Somewhat disappointed we went down to the dining hall and eventually found a table, again adequate food but nothing special. We took a short walk around the shops in the evening avoiding the live band in the main bar area. This even managed to drown out the neighbouring bar when we went up to our room. It didn't ...
