It was a very pleasant stay at the Caravela Beach resort. There was a delay at the airport on arrival, because the coach didn't come on time...and the reason given was that there was a break-down of that particular coach. We would have appreciated it if there was an alternative back-up plan in place so that another vehicle could have...
