Thank you Aqua Vista - all of us felt welcome, slept well and would have liked to stay longer than the five nights. The rooms and bathrooms where clean and spacious. Will definitely recommend this guest house!

Our booking was cancelled at the last minute disappointing service from booking.com and Aqua Vista. Avista has lack of even trying to accommodate us when fees on booking.com were lower than A Vista expected. Not impressed at all.
