Stayed here two nights, first night was around 28 degrees and we were not offered a fan so we opened a window and then spend the whole night getting eaten by mozzies as the fly screens had gapes. The beds were also pretty hard and the single bed squeaked like crazy. I was there for my birthday and we had arranged a whole day of treatments but firstly we got told they were short staffed so they were going to shuffle us around and I was going to go first in the morning but that never happened and I spend 6 hrs waiting to get a treatment which when I did it was very poor. The pedicure/manicure was very fast and no massaging of feet or hands at all and she only put scrub/cream on one side of my hands, then did a terrible job of painting my nails (missed all the sides). Facial felt nice but left my skin feeling yuck and I am still getting pimples now two weeks later!
Food was yum but VERY small size for the price.
I think this place has so much potential but although very friendly the staff lack knowledge and everyone needs to be more organised.
It's a bit like an over priced B&B.
