Maybe we were just unlucky, because it doesn't seem like a bad place to stay at seeing as it's very central and closely located to the national park. The pool is great and the rooms aren't bad, even if a bit manky for the price. Some of the staff were extremely unfriendly and disinterested. Great plus was the open air cinema every night. If you're looking for peace and quiet this is NOT the place to stay as it's full of US college kids who spent most of their time getting pissed, shouting and screaming and playing in the pool.
