Holiday heaven

This was the view from our balcony 
 The infinity pool
 Down to the man made lagoon 
 On the beach
 Looking towards the mountains
 Along the coast
 Hotel front garden
 Botanical gardens- day out
 Venue for lunch on a day out
 Birds of prey at Oasis Park - day out
 I fell in love with Flamingo's aged 11
first seen at Slimbridge
 By the waterfalls leading to the lagoon
 Our favorite stopping point, 
people watching
A few of the stunning plants around the hotel.

Our hotel was at the top of a small mountain, tumbling down to the sea, Front reception was built on level 6, ground level at the front, our room was on level 5, and the back reception was on level 3, everything faced to the back of the hotel and overlooking the pools and beach, the hotel built into the side of the mountain. 
The outside was also on 4 levels, all with  slopes or steps creating stunning walks around the grounds. All the landscape around was barren wasteland, but the whole of the grounds were an oasis of green and colourful flowers. 
The most wonderful holiday possible, Rio Calma, Fuerteventura.
