This turned out to be a bit of a disappointment in general. The rooms were lovely and the hotel setting beautiful, but the service was horrendous. We ended up ordering two rounds of drinks and nibbles at once to save having to wait over 20 minutes to get one! The food was quite poor in comparison to the other hotels we stayed in with very little choice for the hotel size and number of visitors. In fact there were several other groups using the hotel who were complaining bitterly about the food and service to their representatives. Lovely pool and surround though, for birdwatching on the lake it was definately the best.
Good place to visit Yala and hopefully the staff will imprive as this is their first season after re-furb.
