The rooms were neat and clean .Service was good even though we were on holiday during the December period which is peak season. Fresh bread was available daily as there's a bakery on the premises which bakes a variety of bread and pastries and cakes.

Stayed there for four nights. Good hotel, Good service, very helpful receptionist and concierge. Great shuttle and taxi service. It would have been perfect if the chef at the buffet service was friendly and helpful and doesn't look bored. Otherwise will stay there again in the future
