My experience in this hotel was absolutely exquisite. I honestly cannot afford this type of hotels but I was able to get a 2 nights stay for the price of less than one night by a coupon I bought. The coupon also included a trip to the Cayo Levantado island beach. It was a very romantic, high end and fine...
