    A taste of tropical paradise.

    A lovely stay in a well run hotel with a tropical garden setting. Very friendly and helpful staff, spacious and comfortable room, fabulous pool and very convenient for the city centre. An excellent range of choice at breakfast although we would have preferred a price option including breakfast in the booking.
