It was the place that me and my family used to stay at every month. And here I come back! Nothing change in the hotel but the memories of the hotel will always remain in my mind! Closed by to food and attraction. But quite far from beach but it is in the center of shopping!

Although one man did show me him lighting the leather on the bag to prove that it was real and it seemed to be so I'm still a bit confused about that one! One lady we bought from explained that there were 2,800 people from a cruise ship on the island today and another ...
... enlisted to help with this monumental endeavor. The dog’s parents stopped by Neil’s house with a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine to thank him for his assistance.
