I stayed a total of 6 weeks in December and January in different rooms. Some rooms are better than others e.g. working or non working ACs, working or not working remote controls (some with chinese inscriptions), none insects or a few cockroaches or many mini-ants.
Staff try to do their best and are very helpful.
Breakfast? I had to leave the hotel every day at 7 and my wife took breakfast at 8:30. Dont come to early or too late because there might be no coffee or no marmelade or no .... Still wonder why they put textile napkins on the tables only at about 7:30, before you may be lucky and there might be paper ones, or not.
Over all, the value is ok for the price if you could get one of the good rooms. You are allowed to use the swimming pool of the Golf Course Hotel that is in walking distance.
