We had a great night and a lot of fun with the bartender, Dillon! Too bad we couldn't stay longer. Dillon, if you're reading this, thank you for a great night out! Greetings from your Belgian friends, Jens & Simon

The double bed mattress is very uncomfortable. The cabin is very noisy and hear doors banging, shower and toilet water running noises all the time. Not recommended for people that enjoy silence. Other wise the views are very nice.

We loved it. Beautiful setting. The staff make it even more memorable. We did not only walk away with awesome memories but we also left a few friends richer. The food was great. Oysters fresh. Shower awesome. So clean. High security.
