    On TripAdvisor, there is a $95 rate and and $130 rate for a double room, half-board. The description is the same. What is provided differently for the difference in price? Thanks!

    Answer Show all 2 answers
    Response from Karim V | Reviewed this property |
    This price difference is due to change in meal plan. Half board rate comes with accommodation charges, breakfast and one major meal. Previous rate is for bed and breakfast.
