“Peaceful, monkeys and yet close to the city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2005

The Windsor's main attraction is that it allows you to wind down after a busy day of meetings. You can sit on the terrace with a beer, the moon looking down on you, and you hear as only sounds the cries of monkeys and birds. The hustle of the city is far-away. Same peaceful atmosphere to start-up your day. At breakfast they serve an excellent choice of hot and cold foods. And while you are having it, you look at the lawns and forest and golf course. Choice of natural juices rather limited. Dinner and beers a bit pricy. Rooms are great value, nicely decorated, spacy, well equipped. The place is rather deserted in the evening. Most of the guests seem to be in large groups, there is not much possibility to chat with someone, apart from the women selling "men's wear" ... There is a nice, little swimming pool. An awesome golf course, for non-golfers a running track through the forest, with monkeys staring at you from a distance. That garden is really big! You can walk away from the buildings and be alone, picturing that the fence might be broken and that a lion is going to get you! Until you suddenly meet a couple of golfers around the corner .. Front desk staff not very efficient. Checking out takes ages. Sport/massage facilities okay-ish. All in all a relaxing place, but if you are looking for adventure find your self another hotel.
