I was satisfied with everything, the rooms were clean and nicely organised. I was happy with the security of the place. I would definitely revisit the accommodation again maybe for more days now......

Cute place to hang out, close to the airport. Staff and food is really good. They also have a pool which looks clean and fun (but weather was cold so couldn’t enjoy it) would stay again, especially for the price.
