A message of honesty
Place was beautiful. However I am disappointed as the shower was terrible. Being Gas powered the water was ice old or extremely hot for 15 seconds. Ive reported the matter the person in charge of which I received no apology and i was told that the shower will be working perfectly the next morning. And not to my surprise it was not working. The water had sand as per the pics i will upload. The shower was ice cold and both my kids are now ill from standing in the shower waiting for hot water to come and go. I will therefore not return to this place and i do not recommend anyone else having the similar experience as i have. Without a decent shower you can never have a nice day moving forward. Not to mention that the toilet was stained as per the picture
