Initial perception of the hotel was great - the layout of the rooms and the pool is really good. The kitchen is outstanding. The shame is that this place seems to be going down hill and it doesn't look like anyone is too bothered. Normally i wouldn't whinge like this but it was such a let down based on the price we paid and we had our iphone stolen from our luggage in our room - perhaps this place was great 5 years ago?
Service - Some of the staff were great, mainly the staff who cooked breakfast and room service. really friendly and they really try (although sometimes the breakfast was cold) - the hospitality staff were rubbish (to say the least). We had to ask for towels and toilet paper (the towels were small and thin) and even after we asked, it took them hours to deliver it. Lastly, they were smoking out the villa next door with what seemed like burnt plastic but perhaps it was to kill the insects - there was this smoke EVERYWHERE and we were trying to swim with our 6 month old in the pool. What was it? DDT? something noxious... I cant think what else they were doing?
The Villa - Great layout - Pool is awesome - Kitchen is dreamlike - Great room sizes - Great beds - BUT..... going down hill fast. Termites are destroying the wooden floors (the are buckled in the rooms) - Outside showers either don't work at alll or the shower heads spray water against the top of the wall instead of down. Inside bathroom was really nice which made up for it.
Overall - they really can rescue this place but it needs some money spent on it and needs someone to do something with their hospitality staff . Lastly - fix your wireless!!!
