Up early for breakfast on the first full day of our holiday found us exploring what the hotel had to offer. Whilst the hotel, from the front, was two stories high the lift traversed four stories because the hotel is built on the side of a cliff. Here's some photos of the middle of the hotel taken from various floors.
We did some sunbathing around the pool but it was quite breezy which made it cool to sit out, so, after lunch, we found a comfy chair on the terrace and enjoyed the sun without the cool breeze, whilst enjoying coffee and a brandy and reading.
I was just having a quiet snooze (I think it must have been the brandy) when I heard a whooshing only to look up and see a huge hawk landing on the ballustrade! Minutes later the hawk's handler arrived.
The hawk and it's handler stayed for about 20 minutes demonstrating the hawk's flying. We presume it had been brought into the hotel to frighten away the pigeons and other birds, which caused a bit of a nuisance.
After a thoroughly relaxing and entertaining day we returned to our room to watch the sunset from our balcony
before getting ready for dinner, which we enjoyed in the Chinese Restaurant.
After enjoying a few drinks and the entertainment on offer in one of the bars we retired to our suite looking forward to Day 3 of our holiday.
