Province of Cordoba, Argentina
Reviewed yesterday NEW

The kids club was great! Always tidy and neat and the candid attention of the girls there was awesome. My kids had a lot of fun with the activities organized by them. Special thanks to Kimberly and Carmen for always receiving them with a warm smile and willingness to play and give them love! Kisses from Cordoba, Argentina, girls!
