    We stayed for 4 days. Rooms were nice, clean and the swimming pool very ideal and private. I was amazed for us to be changed rooms as there was a leak in the initial room, as they planned its repair. Breakfast awesome!

    Right from the time of booking to the end of our stay, the customer care was wonderful. The staff are friendly especially at the reception. The food was great and was served with a smile. I would recommend my friends to stay at the Monalisa.
