Hotel standard, nem muito mais, nem muito menos. Poderiam priorizar um pouco mais a limpeza, já que tem carpetes.

Amanzi for honeymoon
Wow, the view at this property was stunning! We stayed in the honeymoon suite which had our very own pool! But best of all was the view! We were also ecstatic with the amazing hospitality. We were surprised with a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries which were a very nice touch. The property has bikes you can take at your leisure as well as paddle boards and kayaks to enjoy! We wished we stayed a few days instead of one night. But we will definitely be back and bring some friends!
