The Mangrove - Panwa





As we stepped slowly down the steps the sea the small lodgings were carefully lit up and the gardens looked well look after - I say 'looked' because it was dark.

As we reached the bottom there was a faint blue glow from a swimming pool stretching parallel to the shore line - thought that it may well be a nice place to stay. 



As we walked towards the 'sea wall' Jemma discovered a big chess set. So we moved them about a bit and then we retired to the restaurant for dinner.



The restaurant was well set up and the designer had set up a set of Campbell Soup tins on a shelf - a fan of somebody?

The floor was covered in sand - which we felt was a nice touch and the furniture was very complimentary to the buildings and the concept.



The quality of the food was not as good as the quality of this though - maybe my expectations were now too high?

The food was reasonable and not expensive - but we had 4 dishes and 3 were ordinary - the fresh squid on garlic and pepper was superb though! My daughter did not enthuse to come back but it has only just opened so we will certainly visit again - maybe for a swim?
