We are currently not affected by the water crisis but are doing everything we can to conserve water in the hotel. The water is due to be affected in May, but this is not certain. We will keep our guests updated on our Facebook page as well as on Trip Advisor.

Do the rooms have balconies or outside access?
Most of them have balconies. I am not sure if every single room has one. But the pool area is really beautiful and you can also relax there.
