My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in January 2012. We had a superior studio with a queen bed, a balcony, and a small kitchen. It was nice to have a bathroom with a high showerhead and good water pressure after a week at a condo that that fell short of our expectations in that area. Everything was clean and inviting. The grounds contain a large garden with walking paths and a stream. The staff was cheerful and helpful and gave us a map and then directions to the sites we should visit. They are happy to share their knowledge and give recommendations. We didn't miss the air condtioning because there were 2 fans and screens on the balcony and entry doors so there was good airflow. We had coffee, bananas, and baked goods provided by the hotel both mornings. All you have to do is take your mug down to the office to get your coffee. We noticed the noise of the frogs at night but it didn't bother us. We both enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.
