- All good. Facilities, room, breakfast and location close to mountains. Also, price is reasonable.
- Hotel is located on the road to the Medeo. Sight view is very good, however keep in mind that location is in mountains. Good pool and sauna at the ground floor. Nice personnel. Dinner was tasty.
- The staff was very nice and helpful. The rooms are big and the SPA is pleasant. The gym is decent. I imagine it is a nice place in the summer when you can be on the terrasse at the top floor and go for hikes in the area.

- There are a lot of things to do for children. The food in the restaurant is tasty.
- It’s very nice place for family leisure. There are plenty of activities to do, territory is big enough to just walk through. We stayed at tree house, which I recommend to young people without little children, because there are pretty high above the ground, but it’s great experience though. I’d recommend to young and active people to visit bike yard, which is on the other side of the mountain. Really extreme experience.
- Staff is friendly, room is clean and comfortable (although air conditioning is centralised, so sometimes it can be hot in rooms). Breakfast good. Plenty of working outdoor activities, despite pandemic.
Food is delicious and entertainment area is great as well!
Location is perfect!
- It was amazing sightseeing, quit. Comfortable little house among the trees.
