    Very modern, quick & friendly welcoming by the owners, delicious breakfast with friendly staff, great view from the balcony; it's almost like an airBnB where you feel like you are living in a home, but a very luxurious one; would stay there again

    Good view from the balcony, can see the lagoons and everything is so peaceful. Great to have breakfast on the balcony. The room size is fairly enough, decorated with white. Overall is very clean, neat and nice.
