2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Have stayed at this hotel after receiving good recommendation from a friend. However, I must say my impressions were not as good as his.
I will present them in some bullet points.

Pros

- Rooms are spacious
- Kids club is very handy
- Little farm is well maintained

Cons

- Rooms are dark, even with lights on
- There was a scorpion in my room
- Water pressure in the shower is ridiculously low
- Internet did not work most of the time,even though advertised
- There is not even a basic supply of first aid medications for any emergency. This becomes an issue especially when pharmacy delivery is inexistent after 6pm.
- They ran out of milk and other products during a long weekend/holiday showing lack of planning and preparedness for the situation when they were fully booked.
- The bar by the pool did not offer anything but water, a few brands of beer and some drinks. No option of any type of food.
- Restaurant always offered a few options for dinner. However, they were not prepared for an event when most of the people would go for the same option and, unfortunately to them, it happened one night and all you could see was waiters running around and bringing food that did not match exactly what was in the menu. For instance, I ordered duck and apricot rice and what I got after a long wait was duck and plain rice.

I could probably go on a bit more about issues encountered but I think this is already enough to explain my rate. Hopefully, they will address these issues for future guests in order to remain in business even though they have some fat to burn given the prices charged.

Room Tip: If you choose a type of suite called Varanda, ask for one on the first floor. On the ground floor ev...
