    Well the hotel and spa are 5 stars... The food isn't... So if just like me, you love your food, well it's not bad, but could be much better.
    The best food was at Gabi Beach: go there!

    ... stone structures. Apparently, about 80 percent of the buildings are in a state of deterioration, because they were built with the soft coral stone that gives the city its distinct look but doesn't stand the test of time.

They are really great girls, very young, whom left their families to earn money for their lives. With whom we live is pastor and ...
