  • 8.0.Very good

    Цена слишком завышена, хотя место приятное.

    Сама территория отеля ухожена, приятная, особенно зона у бассейна. Номер маленький, но все необходимое есть. Ресторан неплохой. Виды из ресторана и от бассейна завораживающие. Для пары дней после перелета - хорош для адаптации. Но вот с пляжем - беда. В океан заходить неприятно и опасно (дно каменистое).
