          Hi, I would like to know whether this hotel is strictly adults only or whether children are able to stay too? I am looking for an adults-only hotel, no children! Bonsoir, je voudrais savoir si cet hôtel est seulement pour les adultes ou si il y aura des enfanfs là aussi? Je cherche un logement sans enfanfs!
