4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have been to this place many times and I see gradual improvement to better servicing guests. This hotel is a great value for money. I have been to many places which is sometimes expensive than this place but quality of room, food and service are far better than some smaller hotels branded as unique. Buffets are always fantastic.

We stayed here a few days and its very good vis a vis the competition which we also visited. Great pool for kids. Normally lots of kids about for them to make friends. Gym is ok. Snooker, table tennis all good extras. The lady who organises transport is very good as is the key lady on reception.

Friendly staff. Lovely food, especially the caramelised banana. I had 2 helpings, and I don't usually enjoy sweets. Wide choice of food - tasty soup. Huge breakfast choices. The balcony was small, no chairs. Dressing gown and slippers in room.

We had a lovely night here, the rooms are very spacious and well appointed. The juliet balcony was a lovely feature. The bathrooms were average but clean. The dining area was very nice and the food was a good standard. The reception and porter staff were very helpful and efficient.

We spent a night in this lovely hotel after visiting the elephant orphanage. We had a beautiful room overlooking the pool. Huge comfortable beds and balcony. The restaurant was charming, many 'stations' offering different styles and nationalities of food, some cooked in front of you. Masses of variety and choice, both for dinner and breakfast.

Our stay here was enjoyable. The rooms were bigger than expected and in good shape. The common areas were crowded but were large enough to handle almost everyone. Breakfast was good but was also really busy. We had dinner here one night, and the food was good. The swimming pool was by far my favorite feature of this hotel and... More
