Travelled with family and small children
Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service
Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Cleanliness: the room had trash under the bed from previous guests. We also found cooked rice. We asked for additional vacuum cleaning. Room: the was missing amenities. We had to ask for it and they apologized and provided. Mini bar: the mini bar was empty. We had to argue with room service in order to get it refill. The room service agent argument was, mini bar is not for free and people are consuming and not paying ( here I guess it is every hotel problem and the hotel would need to deal with it.....) Breakfast: there is no provided menu for breakfast. After asking, we were provided a room service menu. When we ordered the breakfast, the room service informed the menu does not apply. So we dealt with the order ad-hoc and got provided a non 5stars breakfast. Disappointing. Pool: extremely crowded. People are over the limit. No respect to 1.5meters, no masks, people are wearing normal cloth and not swimwear leading to a dirty pool. Stay: we reserved for 3nights. Our decision to check out from 1st day. From the moment of writing this complaint, we still didn't check out, therefore we don't know what can happen next but we will you know. TV: no English channels kids. Other channels are not working. Entertainment is null. Hotel: due to Corona, only pool is open. No gym, no spa and only 1 restaurant is open.

A relaxing pleasant weekend
The resort is new and a bit far from the city.Quiet and large rooms with balconies,huge pool with children's pool and a big area for walk, lazy river and a lake. The only thing that bothered me was the smell from a nearby camel farms at times so i would suggest they plant fragrant trees and plants like lemongrass, basil etc in abundance as they have got big area for gardens and it will really mask the smell on windy days. The caffe was very good and staff very helpful though they are very busy. It felt like they were short staffed for the overwhelmingly huge number of guests and reception could be bigger. We enjoyed our stay in the room and outdoors and found it to be very relaxing. It is a family friendly dry hotel and villas with private pools are available too. No nearby shops or grocery as such and minibar is very basic. You can have good coffee and karak at the caffe though.
