We stayed for 2 nights and it was delightful. We had the pool to ourselves and the kids enjoyed the stay. The room is cleab though the only downside is we are not used to high bed. I guess it is european standard. For that rate per night, it is worth it. It was even peak season when we stayed...

Don't go there.... Bad service! Unclean room! We waited 50 minutes for the driver to pick us up.... The employees lie about the tours! And try to charge you 3 times the actual price...

“Room 102 has strong & consistent wifi connection and it's near the front desk so it's easy to just go out of the room and ask the receptionists if you need something. but since it's facing the road, you can hear the tricycles passing by and since it's near the waiting area, you can also hear the people there (if they get too noisy)”
