Location is at the bottom of three sister hotels, on a steep incline. Most amenities are down hill, so lots of return trips up steep hills. No air-conditioning in the rooms, got uncomfortable as temperatures climbed to 41 degrees for several days, combination of winds and forest fires. You do have a basic kitchen and fridge if you want to... More

We have just got back from a week at the Buganvilia. It is basic, but very clean. Breakfast was good, apart from the chipped cups, hotel staff need to realise this is unhygienic. We had a great view from our balcony. One of the Female reception staff was fairly curt and offish when I asked about the sky bar at... More

no aircon, no fan in the rooms either. Shower screens that didn't fit properly so water ran all over the floor. Floors that don't fit together properly. Mould in the bathroom. Paintwork badly marked and dirty. Hole in the wall behind the bed (looked like the previous occupants tried to dig their way out). Everything looks tired and worn. No... More

No aircon in bedroom!!! Whole hotel is old, tired and shabby. Clean enough though. Reception staff were good but other staff were grumpy. Needs a bar at its own pool. Breakfast was edible, lots of choice but not great. One broken toaster is not enough.

A very dated hotel. Kitchenette a little poorly equipped. Advertised free shuttle to old town now stopped. That said the staff are a delight. Very helpful and accommodating and attempt to solve any issues or answer any queries providing valuable tips and advice. Hotel is also very clean.

It's a hotel that will grow on you - its staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful and, on the couple of occasions when we needed something attended to, this was sorted promptly and efficiently.
