paradise
The staff of this hotel are really friendly and helpful there is very few places to eat within walking distance at night if you don t want to eat in the hotel, there is a bus stop just outside which takes you into hole town which takes about 5 minutes at only 2 b dollars per person The beach and hotel grounds are kept superbly clean and tidy a really lovely place to relax on the beach the sea is warm but quite rocky in the water with some big waves at times would highly recommend this hotel and we would go back again
