Rooms are a good size with a comfy bed. Tv channels are better than most but very limited. Setting is generally nice but can be noisy when they are hosting functions on site. Curtains are too light and therefore see through especially at night. Pool is a nice size & feature. Staff are pleasant & helpful. Food is okay too....

I don't know how it is possible this property had such a good rating. Overwhelming smell of urine, very small bed, bedding and towels not clean. Tv and noise travel to other rooms without the neighbors being noisy. One expect this from a place half the price, but NOT for the price charged.

The rooms are very good, but the walls in between rooms are extremely thin, and you literally hear your neighbor fart during the nights. But the rooms are big, clean, have good beds and a good bathroom with good hot showers. The food in the restaurant is very good, with big portions and very tasty! BUT, the big problem with...
