All in all, quite adequate and comfortable.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
Good bathrooms with adequate water heaters (wall switch).
Rooms kept clean.
Bedding decent and clean, mattresses a bit hard but tolerable. Cot mattresses pretty hard.
Nice big porches.
Wifi in the rooms (but low bandwidth).
Fan in the room (AC not needed, cool at night there).
Laundry service very good with one day turnaround.
VERY noisy near the reception and restaurant, do not stay in the blocks in that area. Many flies attracted by the smells make it impossible to enjoy the porch- again, stay up the hill away from the restaurant. The poor office staff have to deal with flies all day long.
The restaurant is mediocre but adequate. Plain, unexciting food- I did not look forward to meals but they did the job.
