... we chose a hotel away from the main strip on purpose and we were glad we did, as noise in town can be quite high depending on which place is having a party (eg Vibrations on Friday).
We found a place showing a film at 7.30pm and had dinner there, which was fine although nothing like as good as that we had in Mirissa. Afterwards we went to a bar in the book who's name escapes me now, and then to Vibrations which was really ...
