Some of the views from the 7th ( pool level) at the Part Royal Resort. Great pool, nice restaurant, a perfect spot to watch sunrise or sunsets.
Arrived at the Park Royal resort after a long day of travel. The beach and sunset did not disappoint. Met some really nice folks in the plane and met for dinner.
