5 star hotel but a 3 star in reality
Expensive for what it offers.. its supposedly a 5 star but in reality its not more than a 3 star.. very small rooms with the shower and bath in the middle of the room.. making the room very dump after taking a shower.. very small tv, the sink is the middle of the room to.. only the toilet is in a cramped space with a door.. very expensive food, the spa was not ON in middle of August.. and prepare your self of a 40mim drive in a road with curve after curve without protection rails and a 150m fall..
