Privilee with Kids : Waldorf Astoria The Palm

We’ve done the Waldorf a couple of times now. We like it because of the few times that we’ve been – it’s never really too packed. With summer properly here, it’s even quieter – yay for us πŸ™‚ I mean really, not many people are crazy enough keen to be out in the water when […]
