When we got the call to have a look at a new boutique hotel a few weeks back, we were looking forward to meet Daryl. Daryl is one of the new generation with enthusiasm and ideas, willing to make them happen and not only talking about it. That spirit was very clearly felt, when entering Island’s Leisure Boutique Hotel. He also friendly agreed to answer the 10 questions of our quick interview.
