I stayed here for 1 week in May 2009 with my husband while he was there on business. (Unfortunately tripadvisor does not let me choose 2009 under 'date of stay'...). We stayed in a balcony room overlooking a grassy area with some trees. Room was very average...the room was a little tired looking and dated, but was clean. Service people were friendly enough when I interacted with them and tended to keep to themselves. There were a certain number of bottled waters available for free daily...I overshot my limit everyday though since I was pregnant at the time and needed lots of water in the heat/humidity and paid the small extra amount for additional water.
Grounds were nice in a wild-unkempt sort of way... You can tell at the beginning of this hotel's inception, this would have been a beautiful hotel, but as with the rooms...the upkeep of the grounds looks as though it has fallen behind.
I did take a dip in the pool one afternoon and found the pool smelling like bleach (your typical household bleach)...I immediately got out, thinking how strange it was...but I guess could be something they do here... Looks like a nice pool though if it weren't for the bleach smell (and no, it wasn't your typical pool-chlorine smell).
The one thing I really loved about this hotel was the Japanese restaurant on the grounds!! Loved the food! My husband and I had lived in Japan for a year so this immediately took me back to eating in Japan. I still think about that restaurant because the food was so good!
The hotel (main cafe buffet restaurant) food was average... some selections of the food were better than others.
To sum it up... the Japanese restaurant was amazing... rest of the hotel and amenities were average ...and the pool was poor because of the bleach smell.
