Awesome location and great price
Awesome location. The beds were full size which kind of small for two American adults lol The shower was always hot. The room with two beds was small I e don’t think the room was mopped before we arrived and while we stayed there, but we didn’t complaint so if they didn’t it’s our fault for not asking. We will definitely stay here again
