    Is the bathroom fully private with no glass walls or doors? We do not want to be able to see each other when using toilet shower!

    Our room had a private bathroom with no windows- when we were upgraded to the holiday apartment it was the same. Great place to stay. 😃
    Hi. Are the bathrooms shared or are there any rooms with an attached bathroom?
