Accommodation

 
Patio Andaluz
We were very disappointed with this hotel. The interior was very dated - 1970s style. the safe broke every time we used it and the management were chaotic and had forgotten to pass on essential information. The waiting staff were charming, but no-one on meal service spoke any English at all.
 
Grace
We loved the boat and it seemed to attract a like-minded crowd. The alfresco social spaces - especially the dining area makes all the difference to group culture. The crew service was great. We were trialling their new menu apparently - which is theme night. We would all advise them to drop 'German' theme - especially frankfurter soup!

Our Memories

"Snorkelling with penguins was pure joy."
"One sunset, dolphins raced with the boat for about an hour - apparently for the pure fun of it."
