It was pretty cool just playing by the pool, having the odd wander down to the beach and generally watching the world go by.

The other …
The hotel, I promised a little more on that. Well you are greated by the wonderful staff and of course the fantastic reception area. Complete with a giant koi carp pool which surrounded the entrance.
