It wasn't a very nice experience as we were greeted with a whole swarm of mosquitos. The showers were also confusing to use and didn't quite work. The food was also very unpleasent. The breakfast was cold and everything seemed quite old and hard. The buns and bread were so hard you could barely eat it. The pancakes, toast and...

Probably the best hotel in the area. Its a new hotel and its situated fairly close to the places of interest. The hotel staff were very helpful and their service was excellent. Not too many choices when it comes to food, but there will be something everyone will like.

I visited the hotel on the 6th of January 2017. The hotel is located in a quiet part of the town and the room was spacious and clean. The interior of the room was modern and we had hot water supply through out the day. The staff we interacted with were very friendly and helpful. There is a mini garden...

The place seemed to be a bit empty and soulless when we arrived mid-day. However, we were proved wrong as staff service, food and accommodation were very good and when more guests arrived the atmosphere improved considerably.. The pool and gardens were tranquil and well kept. Be prepared for lots of mosquitoes in the area.

I checked into this hotel not knowing what to expect. From the outside it looks fairly usual. But once inside the hotel is a very nice, comfortable, welcoming and clean place. It is a 3.5 star rated hotel and I think they really are a 4 star place. The toilets are modern, spic and span. It really looks more like...

If you want to enjoy a quiet and peaceful evening, this is the place to go. Great location, extra friendly staff and very good food. The rooms are very spacious and clean. However, make sure you ask for a mosquito repellent in reception- since it's surrounded by nature, there's no other way to fight them :)

Arrived in the hotel around 4am, no lights outside, guard was not in uniform..surrounding doesnt look good at that time but come morning and after a few hours of sleep a very relaxing environment greeted me..the whole area was very refreshing, the place was very quiet perfect for the tired body and mind.
