this is a very tired hotel. Food is bland and is definitely not even 3 * quality. Lots of noise from AC equipment and construction works. Some of the staff look interested but many going thro the motions. Definitely not a 5** hotel nor anywhere near that level. When you look at the poor reviews this hotel has received you... More

We stayed there in November for 3 nights and found the hotel to be excellent - restaurant lots of choices and great entertainment We also did the river cruise which was worth doing ! The hotel exceeded expectations with our farewell dinner - did not want to leave ! A tip: take your own hairdryer

Very nice place with nice staff welcoming us with the typical watermelon juice. The room was very big and well furnished. We had dinner by the pool lighted by candles. The food was of good quality and well presented. The service caring and discrete. Highly recommended!
