i came for dinner a couple of times at this resort and was pleasantly satisfied with the level of service, especially the service from a man called Leps, he was outstanding as well as funny, catering to all my needs. The food was tradition and the drinks were refreshing.

Location to town- excellent. Executive suite - excellent. Large, comfy bed. Large twin sink bathroom, good size living area. Tv has very limited Chanel choice. No film rental or DVD available. Limited room service menu - very little choice, however, we were able to order from the bar area menu and bring it back to the room. Recommend the curry,...
