It was completely worth each penny. They have very courteous staff, beautiful rooms with exquisite woodwork and an amazing patio with scenic view! The resort is very nicely maintained. However, the approach road to the resort needs a lot of repair and there were no streetlights in the night. All in all, it was a very memorable and pleasant stay.
