Mi estancia fue excepcional. Desde el principio me sentí atendido con la máxima eficiencia y respeto.
No hubo prácticamente ninguna interferencia n i interrupción por parte de Mr.Luyven.
Las condiciones físicas del lugar y la belleza de su ubicación hacen de esta casa un lugar para disfrutar a plenitud.
Recomiendo, sin reservas,este lugar para disfrutar buenos momentos.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Luvyen y su familia nos recibieron de la mejor manera posible, haciéndonos sentir parte de ellos.
¡Sin duda volveremos a Guanabo para seguir bailando, riendo y bromeando con todos!
Muy recomendable !!!
Famiglia fantastica! Davvero belle persone ospitali e gentili. Casa grande e pulita. A 10 m da una spiaggia bellissima. Consiglio a tutti un soggiorno qui. Io ritornerò senz' altro
¡Muchas Gracias Luvyen!
Mis padres Rubén y Yolanda estuvieron muy a gusto con ustedes. La habitación es impecable y muy cómoda. El trato tan amable, el inmejorable servicio y la hospitalidad en un lugar encantador como es Guanabo distinguen tu casa.
¡Más que recomendable!
