The plugin seems very feature rich, but when you come to customization, youre in the dark. After buying the PRO version, realized there's not much in plus and the plugin logic is simply hard to understand with a steep lurning curve. Than you have only a few options in admin, cannot customize basic things. Editing and overriding template files did not work. Wrote to support, each answer takes almost 2 days. Very bad experience from a PRO payed for plugin. Will never buy again that's for sure.

The plugin is great and feature rich, especially for a free plugin. The support was top notch as well.

I lost 90$ and lot of time with Pro version which does not offer any features that justify such a high price (every year). The free version is almost the same. Display customization on ELEMENTOR is almost non-existent. Support will ask you to make php edits for a very basic room list display. Despite the php changes the rendering remains very poor. After three days of use without satisfactory results, I request a refund, explaining the reasons for my request. The support tells me that the refund is only valid in case of technical issues to avoid scams ... Bad adventure

I loved this plugin. I used the lite version then i needed to add another location to the same website so i decided to go premium. It's totally worth the money invested.
