While all the staff were very helpful and kind, the room was pretty basic. Most notably, the rooms did not have any soundproofing. We could very clearly hear the conversations of our neighbours beside and above us, as well as anything outside. We did not sleep well because of this. However, there is a buffet breakfast included and outdoor pools. Overall, this hotel is adequate especially for the price but I wouldn't recommend staying here if sleep is important to you.

Seriously though... HUGE buffet breakfast included. It’s a resort feel and hostel prices. Massive pool and hot tub. Top notch bars. Birds and monkeys right there. Pristine grounds-you won’t believe it.

We had a large room with a queen and a king bed, and we enjoyed having lots of room to spread out. Unfortunately, our room had been sprayed for bugs before we arrived and it smelled really bad the first day. When I reported this to the front desk, a small fan was brought to our room. which didn't help much. It was difficult to leave the door open because there are no screens. I should have asked for a different room. The location of the room was great, looking down towards the pool. To get to the bathroom we had to climb 4 stairs which was awkward in the night. The room needs updating. The dining area is attractive and the included breakfast is good with many choices. It was a ways to town so we had to take a taxi (easy) to go to a restaurant or shop in town. The staff is very good; Paula was particularly helpful.This hotel has some good point, but I would choose another place closer to town with more modern rooms next time.

Nice and comfortable and clean. Service was full of smiles and ready to help. Magaly was lovely serving us in the restaurant and Elvis at the bar. Thank you for a wonderful visit. We had a basic room and it was just that.
