This place seems okay on here, cheap, pictures seem ok, and comments not too bad but the reality is very different! The entire place is disguisting - when we pulled up we were concerned about the people inside the security gates seeming like locals and arguing with the security people but they seem to live just outside the resort and inside the security gates?! There was also a very annoying taxi man at the entrance pestering for business continually. Very shabby buildings at the enterance, does get slightly better inside but only marginally. Were shown to our room which was not that clean, had two bed sheets with a blanket between for a duvet, and the shower base had a hole in it so the bathroom flooded when the shower was on preventing us from showering. The electricity switched off twice in the first hour of us being there which was not great. The swimming pool was in a poor state of disrepair and had caterpillars in it too! We were told the way to the beach but the route was flooded with stagnant water and had alot of dogs around so ended up walking about a mile to the beach like one of the other reviews says, and when we got there it was a mess and had around 30 dogs there so we couldn't even go on the beach. The staff were generally okay although not that helpful, especially unhelpful was a middle-aged lady on reception and the manager. Rest of the staff were okay although lacking in good English language. The only pluses were that the food was decent ad cheap, and the TV had quite alot of channels which is good since if you stay here you will end up in your room for most of the time like we did! After finding out that we were the only ones in this remote resort, and with all the other problems, we did not feel safe and decided to check out first thing in the morning. Was very disappointed by the hotel in general and definitely would not stay there again.
