This place was underwhelming to say the best. For the price, and the four stars it claimed, I was expecting free internet, but I would have even accepted working internet. The employees are borderline incompetent, or incredibly lazy, and the nearest food (other than the overpriced hotel restaurant/bar) is either a 5 mile walk or a 19 Euro taxi ride into town. Don't stay here if you can avoid it.

We were unexpectedly able to dock rather than tender in this port. After breakfast we headed up the path towards the cave and the monastery of St. John.

Starters done we polished off chicken donner and chips before adjourning ...
... corner who cooked me a very nice mince meat flat bread. Just after lunch the rain started, very heavy with loud thunder thrown in. The hotel had a power cut. They got the lifts going again fairly swiftly but wifi was out for the day. After the downpour we walked up to the old village which was much quieter but more run down. They really do have chickens in all the back yards. After our stroll we had an hour in the sun by the pool then it was waffle time. ...
... We the had a Tunisian moment as I told Barry I had been stung and tried to pull out the stinger while in intense pain. Barry though had a page and a half to go! He finally got the message as I pointed out to him the reading time was over. Trouble was this coincided with waffles time. The barman gave us a strange look as we asked for just a glass of ice and I adjourned to the toilet to give myself some first aid. With the ice ...
