Loved the room, air con. and friendly customer service. Having the Hula Bar conveniently located a one minute walk away from the rooms makes it easier to have a few drinks with friends while listening to some good music! :)

We attended their buffet dinner and cultural show, held on Tuesday evenings. It is half the price of others on the island, and is attended by a lot of locals. The food was plentiful, although perhaps not as flavorful as other similar dishes to be...More
