Basic room, rather old and tired Hotel. Air conditioning in room was welcome! The room overlooked a large pool, but i didn't try it. My partners company put him up here for 4 weeks, but luckily I only stayed 3 nights before we moved into a house.

I just smiled and said I was ok as the taxi driver had given me directions. The group started walking very slowly ahead of me, and the man hung back again to walk alongside me, this time so did 2 of the boys.He asked me where I was going and although I didn't want to tell him I didn't ...

OK, perhaps I'm being a bit harsh, so let me tell you that despite just being stared at most of the time, some Islanders did smile and say "hello, afternoon" to me, which was nice, and is still the case now.
