チェックインからチェックアウトまですべてがカンペキでした! バトラーさんの接客はホスピタリティにあふれており、部屋もとてもくつろげる空間でした。 また利用したいと思います。

I will use it from 9/21 to 9/24. I am indebted to you during my stay at Yakushima. If you return from the diving to the room, prepare the hot water in the bathtub or have a meal with this diving or fishing story when you eat, as soon as the return flight is bad weather and the flight is decided, the return route by another route I am really pleased that you have prepared the service and received truly impressive service. Although it was my first stay in Yakushima, thanks to everyone, it has become memorable 4 days. Also, since I'd like to take care of me when I go to Yakushima, in that case I would appreciate your favor. We had delicious cakes served with souvenirs! Thank you very much for your staff, including Ms. A in charge!
