    Hi, we had no problem with the aircon. You can arrange trips with the locals on the beach or with the driver from the airport.
    Hello Do all the rooms have steps to them or are there some that are without steps? We are planning a trip with an 82 year old, and she would battle if there are so many steps Thanks
