4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Hidden charges

Only bad thing I would really have to say is that they don't let you know there's a deposit we have to pay for every day we stay, and it's a high deposit. They should notify people as their booking about it. Wasn't able to really enjoy because the deposit we had to leave was our fun money.
