Thank you for your valuable comments. I understand that you find the description of our Deluxe Ocean View rooms confusing, so we are going to revise it on our online platforms and other materials.

The smell that our visitors sometimes experience is caused by the decomposed vegetation in the mangroves around the area. We are working with a company to treat the...

I am very cool with no TV..but if you need to connect while on vacation then this will be a problem for...
