Arrived safely, for a Friday the traffic was not too bad. Nice place this Warner’s Sinah Warren, and the hotel is a warren!! Nicely appointed room with a sea view.
Happy hour was great!! Hic! The food was very nice, shame about the wait, and that was on the first day!
The line-up for this weekend is very good, they are in order of appearance:
