Comfortable and pleasant stay. Great Hospitality and good room services. Delicious food. Missed to add about the play area (kids play area, basket ball and tennis court) and the location, the relax area (balcony) are the added advantage of carnival. Carnival at its best😉 missing u.!!

The place was good and the rooms were clean. The house keeping staffs are very courteous and lobby managers are good. Food is ok and priority will be given to the guest who come in groups. Recommend to confirm the food orders with the bearers whenever you place the order and they will not listen properly.
