We spend 2 nights here in a bungalow, clean rooms and very nice swimmingpool. Staff was not so friendly and the food was not very good, not much choice. WiFi doesn't go very well inside the room, only outside.

Unfortunately it rained the whole of the four nights we stayed at this hotel so we didn't see it in its best light. Well appointed spacious rooms, though some leaked through the roof. Umbrellas were provided to get you between rooms and down to the reception or restaurant if you were in one of the far flung rooms. The biggest...

We were visiting from New Zealand. From the receptionist at the front desk to the staff in the kitchen you could not have found more helpful, accomodating people. I have traveled the world and I would rate this as one of the friendliest places to stay. The food was excellant, the ambiance was great. Value for money was very good.

The staff is wonderful, cheerful, efficient and helpful, but the rest is a mixed bag. Worst of all is the problem of hot water: when the sun does not shine ( as happened in our case for two rainy days) the solar system is out and so is warm water. Wifi signal is good in the lobby and restaurant, but...

We stayed there for 2 days. Room was good. Indipendent cottages in a resort kind setup. It has a big pool. One could walk around with lot of greenery. The live music in evenings was great . Food was the only not so good part. Dinner buffee was average . But overall service was good. Friendly staff.
