This is a government owned property. The rooms are very nice. After a week of travel it was great to have a bath tub in the bathroom. The toiletries are for Europe, the towels are nice, bed comfortable. All rooms have a nice balcony overlooking a well groomed lawn. There is a nice restaurant on the first floor and a... More

and maybe casino, then this hotel might work for you. First of all the breakfast buffet is very bad. I couldn't eat the food everything seems recycled. Also my room carpet was never vacuum and no iron in my room. The first day upon check in we ordered room service and my food and drinks came in to go boxes.

Upon arrival we were hungry and tired. Our room air-conditioner did not work so they moved us to our tour guides room. The second room air-conditioner did not work so they moved us back to our original room. In the meantime, they had us waiting for their repairman. All in all, everyone in our tour group was walking around and... More

Spent 5 days here on a business trip. Had a ground floor room which was more than acceptable. The bed was comfortable, the room clean but there were signs of wear and tear. The bathroom mirror had lost its silvering so was unusable and the grout around the bath really needed replacing. The air con, although working, wasn't efficient. Maybe... More

We did have a garden room. We didn't know it until morning, because we arrived late. The restaurant is very good. They were willing to cook with olive oil because of my oil allergies. I sat inside. Some of the tour group, started dinner outside with a candle lit under the table to discourage mosquitoes. They ended up moving inside... More

On our arrival, the woman at the reception told us that the room was not paid. As we said yes, she answered no. We repeated yes and she answered «Can you proved it». We had... More

I had a garden room -- horrible! Unfortunately for me, I was stuck and had to stay my entire 8 days because I made a huge mistake of paying upfront for the entire stay -- big mistake, never again! I saw cockroaches in the room twice... The air-conditioning leaked water, so one side of the bed was always wet and... More
