We appreciate that, after a hard day's travel, customers may not want to cook on the first evening. In addition, we would not want customers to miss out on leisure activities. So, closer to the arrival date, we will provide more detailed information to allow guests to make reservations in advance for restaurants and recreation. This is especially recommended in high season.
