The new décor both in the lounge, dining room and chalets was delightful.
There was a very strong smell of urine in the bathroom.
Could be mould as the bathrooms have not been upgraded since our last visit.
Or they need to be cleaned more thoroughly.
Service was good until Thursday and Friday where it was slow.
Wondered if the staff were tired.
It had been exceedingly hot.
The road surface needs to be repaired as a matter of urgency.
Not a good advertisement to foreign tourists arriving at the hotel.
