AlfonsoyRosa – Madrid
“It was a big surprise!!! the rooms are luxurious, almost villas. The food is good, and the staff is very professional, especially Manolito who speaks some Spanish. Some good points: picnic à la carte, the fireplace in the room and the view of the coffee plantation. And there is pool. very good choice for the area of Karatu”
