I am wondering if kids are allowed in the evening hours or not.

Answer
Response from Natalia T | Reviewed this property |
Hello, I am not sure if kids are allowed, but you can call and ask. It depends of the age and the timing. I think an early diner is possible. Although I don t think they will be happy as there isn't any attraction for them.
