The stay was amazing. The staff is very helpful. We enjoyed ourselves a lot and made new friends here. It’s very affordable also. The vibe of the property is very cool.




It feels like a home away from home, a beautiful place surrounded by nature and the staff is so polite and humble. Love every second of my time there.
