Golf Getaway
We enjoyed the golf, facilities, views, bird life, clean air and insect sounds. Overall fantastic place to stay. Will definitely return. Areas for improvement- bedroom did not have wifi connection. Need recycling bins and full smart tv options. Twice food for room service was cold.

Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We had a pleasant stay at Simola because the staff is friendly and professional. The hotel also provides with many amenities (golf, spa, indoor and outdoor pools, restaurants, bar, a few activities) so it's very convenient. The suites are spacious and the views were gorgeous. The breakfast is very good, rich, complete. However, we regret the cleaning wasn't up to the standards of the hotel and renowned golf course. Also the outdoor pool isn't heated though we couldn't enjoy it because it was too chilly, it's a shame for such a big hotel.
