I visited the hotel for work. The location of the hotel is great, five minutes from fantastic beaches. The rooms themselves are of a good standard cleanliness-wise and decoration-wise. The food is quite good but the staff are extremely rude and unwilling to give any assistance. I'm not sure if it was because of the bad spoken English of both sides but a positive attitude always helps..

Salsa On Sundays (SOS) in Russell Square, London

This every Sunday night event is one of the top Salsa nights in England. The dancers that attend the place seem professional and very experienced. The music is great and the venue is nice but without proper air-conditioning system. The floor fans are not enough to ventilate this high activity place. Nevertheless the overall atmosphere of the place along with the ultra-positive attitude of the instructors makes this a must do for keen salseros!

UPDATE:
Salsa on Sundays has moved to:
Royal National Hotel (Northside)
Woburn Place, London
WC1H 0JW
(2 minutes walk from Russell Square Station)

I bought this memory card from Amazon to extend the capacity of my Nokia phone. I'm quite happy with the combination of size, capacity and speed of file transfer. It comes with converter to SD card.

I'm very happy with this little masterpiece. It's really stylish, extremely user friendly, has a very good capacity (stores up to 1000 songs) very satisfying battery capacity and charging time. The only problem is that you need to pay some extras to buy the essential extras (armband, silicon case) in order to use (and protect it) while in the gym.

Royal Lido Chinese Restaurant, Central Milton Keynes, Milton Keynes

The place is nicely decorated but the overall atmosphere was "too formal" and I could say not so cosy. That's well reflected by the characterisation "Royal". The food was really good although quite expensive. We ordered a combo menu, and tasted more or less a lot of the Chinese cuisine. The staff was not particularly friendly but neither rude. The overall experience was not satisfying.

Las Iguanas, Milton Keynes

The place is clean and nicely decorated reflecting the urban-latin atmosphere they want to show. The food and drinks are good but the service in the bar is indeed really slow. The staff is friendly and happy to help you. The music is nice and the overall feeling is very pleasant

What I really like in this pub is the cosy and relaxing atmosphere with fire place and nice decoration. The food is not bad, I agree, but the menu is quite limited. For example, if I recall properly, there is only one salad. Despite that I consider it as one of the best pubs in Milton Keynes, mostly from an atmosphere perspective.

Virgin Active Milton Keynes Life Centre

Excellent gym. Very well equipped with resistance training machines, very good classes and many other quality facilities like pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi.

Very big workout areas, friendly staff and really nice environment.
What I like more about Virgin Active is its high standards in hygiene in all the spaces. From workout areas to the wet areas and the locker rooms.
I also like the fact that you can access the timetable and book classes through the internet, as well as change your personal details, suspend, modify or terminate your membership via their website.

The only problem, compared to the other gyms is that it is a bit more expensive but I think it is definitely worth the money.

Absolutely brilliant fresh and invigorating perfumes, natural ingredients, essential oils for such a low cost. You can find them in all supermarkets. Make sure you try lime, and mint & tea tree oil.

If this was my first day in Milton Keynes I would probably rate it with one star. After seeing other places I think this place deserves one more star especially for its price. ...[review moderated]... I would not recommend it to someone unless (s)he had absolutely no other option.
