Visit Goodies for a Western Style meal but dont stay the night. Beds are hard, room smells of bad water. Found condom and Vasoline in bedside draw. Goodies bar is frequented by Old expats and trophy girlfriends. Do your self a favour and stay in one of hotels, clean sheets, quite airconditioning.

We were lucky to book in and stayed four nights but our apartment was only finished the day of our arrival so you should book well in advance if possible as occupancy rates are now running very high. We were in a two bedroom apartment which had a fully... More
