Always a good choice to hang with friends/family. They've stood the test of time, and I'm sure they'll continue. Good view if you decide to sit outside, good dining or lounge setting inside too. Cactuc cares for everyone

Nice See view lagoon. Variety of cookies and pastries. Ice cremes and Munchies are awesome. Cakes are lavish and tasty. Italian food is too good. Kids have a play zone here.
