Bel hôtel près de Samara :-)
Très beau site avec des chambres comfortables et propres. Le souper directement au bord de la piscine y as été délicieux et abordable. Des l’arrivée nous avons été reçu pas Erin qui est très charmante et a l’écoute de nos demandes. Un site tranquille, propre et accueillant pas très loin d’une magnifique plage que j’ai hâte de revisiter pour plus de nuits et que je recommande fortement. Asta luego Erin !
