Schönes Hotel mit tollem Garten, nicht so sauber
Wir waren mit unseren 2 Kindern für 4 Nächte dort. Die Häuser, der Garten und auch der Pool sind toll. Es gibt ganz viele wilde Tiere auf dem Grundstück. Aber was Sauberkeit betrifft darf man nicht so empflindlich sein. Das Essen war ok, aber nichts Besonderes. Der Betreiber ist nett und gibt gerne Auskunft. Man braucht unbedingt ein Auto. Nach Samara fährt man ca. 15 Minuten. Es hat wirklich tolle Strände in der Umgebung. Wer es einfach, ruhig und naturverbunden mag, ist dort richtig.
