This place was amazing for the price! A great deal that came with breakfast, en suite bathrooms, clean rooms, great customer service, and a nice looking facility, as well.

... in my stomach while Faycal just kept his innocent look. The guy typed it all without a word and that was it. Toro is now officially in our name and we didn't have to bribe a single person on the way ! What a relief, to say the least.
