This was my third visit and once again had an amazing time. Special thanks to all the staff they are so friendly and cannot do enough for you. The rooms are a little tired but other than showering and sleeping you are never in there. Value for money is fantastic and at each visit it gets harder to leave

There is a separate living room and an attached balcony. "Las Masalas" by the poolside offers varied snacks, mini meals and beverages through the day.
