          Hello, I just booked the double deluxe room today via Booking. While the pictures on the website look great and the ratings for the property is awesome, I'm slightly apprehensive about the room quality, only because the pictures do not confirm what room is it & the some not so nice reviews on the rooms. Is it possible that you can share pictures of the double deluxe room? Also, do you provide airport transfers? Thanks in advance!
