          hi I have been trying to make a reservation for one of the guest houses for August next year. I phoned central reservations as they opened at 7.30 on the day accommodation becomes available however these units were already reserved. Do these units get reserved by travel agents? If so does anyone know the name of agents that I could contact to make a reservation with them? many thanks
