This hotel is absolutely wanting for hospitality. Service is absolutely slow and the food is way below par. The hotel does not compare with others in the same area (say, Hemingways).Would not recommend it to anyone.

A very nice hotel with a good scenery but the shower area was too small and also the food was not upto standard. The staff are very friendly. It has a big swimming pool and lots of activities. But overall a good place.
