    Pedacinho de paraíso

    Tive problemas no check out pois a menina que estava no balcão não falava inglês muito bem, passou meu cartão duas vezes e disse que não funcionou. Paguei em dinheiro. Por fim, as duas tentativas foram confirmadas pelo cartão e com isso paguei três vezes a mesma conta. Fora isso, foi tudo maravilhoso. Equipe incrível, SPA maravilhoso, comida muito boa, pessoal hospitaleiro. Nossos Guias Matthews e Fredy, the bests!!!
