Do tiled decks like this feel as solid as standard decks?

Hi! It's hard for me to compare as I don't have a "standard" deck nearby. The tiles are made of hardwood so they feel very rigid. The structure underneath is cedar, which is admittedly softer (but won't rot). Furthermore, the roof itself is quite cushioned so the entire structure stands on a relatively soft surface. Therefore, the feel will be as rigid as the underneath structure is. But tiles make it a lot easier to access the roof membrane/drain when needed.
