          You can't have a good sleep at this hotel cause the music is really loud. Staff is chill. Its a place made for getting drunk and partyin' but wasnt made for a guy like me who ask for sleep and clean toilets.

          In a booking website the offer is "full board" does that mean there is the Restaurant food inclusive? No one ever sais a word about it. And is it really inclusive? Has anyone ever tried?
