Fantastic food, service and girls...the chefs are cooking up grub for the ages. Made to order stir-fry, and pasta...grilled to order fish, meats and omelets. Old men need not wear skinny jeans and tight t-shirts. Ladies dress provocative and yet still tasteful

According to Tripadvisor, star ratings and 'bubble' ratings are different: "For accommodations, star rating is determined by a third-party based on your property’s available facilities, staff and amenities. Meanwhile, your bubble rating is determined by travellers based on their feedback regarding their experience with you." If I were to rate the hotel on stars, I would give it three stars....

This is the first time ever that I write a negative review. This hotel is fine and the staff are genuinely very kind and well intentioned. I nevertheless got ripped off because of the incompetence and poor attitude of the people at the front desk. It is very frustrating to communicate clearly and to obtain opposite results. To the management...
