At first, I love the location of this resort. Good service, friendly people.very peaceful stay. Resorts and rooms are available. Campfire was fun. Best vegetarian food in kodai. Everything was freshly prepared. Wide lawns, beautiful landscaping and children friendly place. Restaurant location is at its best.

Although clean, I've stayed at cheap motels nicer than this. The paint is peeling off the door and moldings and the bathroom is almost too small to get ready... More
