Best place to stay in the entire area
Amazing place, really quiet and relaxing.

2/10 Poor

nice place but don't book through
The place is nice but there were some technical issues and I had to pay twice because the hotel didn't want to admit the double billing (according to staff). I find this strange and a very bad business practice, whoever is to blame. So, it was a ripoff. Next time I should know better and not pay anything in advance.
