    The rooms are well appointed. The breakfast was average. The staff in the breakfast area was very rude, the lady who was admitting people. Noise levels in hotel was high, people were swimming at 11 pm and making a noise. Otherwise a good stay.More

    The hotel was perfect, from the comfy beds to clean linen to the super cool aircon. The poolside bar was real plus, pool was super clean as well. Check in was effortless and the staff were very friendly.
