Staffs were very fluent in English. But overall the service was very poor. We went to the hotel at around 3 pm ( Check... More

Spend a couple of nights at the hotel last month. One big plus is their spacious rooms. Have decent and friendly staff, great food (specially the seafood items). Although I had a little feeling that they are not maintaining fitting in the bathroom properly, it is a minor issue.
