4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities

The stay was good, however, I did not like the fact that when we booked the property on the Expedia site we were told we had to pay £455 for our 9 nights when checking in. However on the day, we were asked to pay £516 pounds which was more expensive than the actual booking itself and when converting the amount it was nearly twice what we had to pay in the Brazilian currency.

Stayed 9 nights in Sep 2019
