Customer review

09 March 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: good chance to make new friends through organized activities, although the organizers themselves turned up quite late or they just didn't. You ended up meeting the people who was waiting at the reception for the guide to come anyway...

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
