i have been there with my family for a week. The hotel is nice, the rooms are clean and spacious. However, there are 2 windows in the room without curtains; consequently, it is very difficult to sleep in the morning. At noon, the restaurant only offers a few dishes, in the evening, there is only buffet food.
