Very nice, we must book in advance for the period of August because the demand is very strong. I will return without hesitation.

Very good, clean and friendly. It feels good and safe and the food is convenient.

Small flat on the beds that are uncomfortable which can be disturbing in the long run. Many facilities available to practice.
