We stayed here from 9th to 11th May'15, the view from balcony is mind-blowing. Perfect spot for a relaxed vacation. About the stay - Excellent rooms, cleanliness, Quick room service, good hospitality from check-in to check-out. Restaurant - Food is 'Okay', the restaurant is full of houseflies and dirty table cloth

Room was clean with proper bed lining,... More

We had a chance to visit Carnival 3 months back and it was a nice time. My wife came with me and we stayed two days. Forest view is really great. It's nice time when we spend on the Play area. My daughter enjoyed very much. She played all the games there. She also want to visit again there.
