The staff were very friendly to us and each other, and even showed us a video of the orca that had visited that morning. They gave us some tips of beautiful local places to visit. Everything from the food to the atmosphere staff and music...More

If you’re going to Cathedral Cove on the Coromandel peninsula in New-Zealand, chances are you will be hungry after the trek. If you are (and even if you’re not) you have to stop at Hahei Beach Cafe (HBC Cafe). Very friendly staff and the food...More
