First of this is not worth the money. Moreover the staff is uncourteous and service is extremely poor. Food is laden with mosquitoes and cockroaches. The buffet is pathetic (good quality) and not even adequate for guests as it got over twice. The hotel staff changes tariffs during checkout and backtrack on their commitments made during booking and check in.... More
