What an experience. The honeymoon suite was absoulutly beautiful with a finominal view from the balcony and it is not far away from the margate beach. The Albatros guesthouse has the best service you can find and the owners are such lovely and welcoming people. I would recommend anyone to stay at the Albatros guesthouse.
