Very obliging staff. The stay was without incident and the meals were exceptional, and cheap. The grounds were very well kept with plenty of greenery to add to the relaxed feel of the park. Will certainly stay there again.

I had the opportunity to stop here tonight and I'm very impressed. Rooms are clean and have everything you need including great air conditioning, and a practical buffet style restaurant. Met the friendliest, most helpful chef/receptionist ever. Will definitely be back.
