The hotel was as I remembered it; built along clean, elegant lines. Painted a stark white, it was softened by the tropical wood shutters and deep green foliage from its landscaping.
It faced the sea which was choppy and a dull grey green, reflecting the cloudy sky that day. Well, it is not always sunny and blue skies everyday near the equator, despite what the travel sites tell you.
The room was luxurious. Large king size bed, the towels folded to resemble a pair of swans and a view of the ocean.
A cool bath to wash away the tropical heat and dust, the only sound was the whirr of insects outside our window.
