4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Long before we flew, we specifically contacted the hotel to say we would be arriving very early to the property and was there some arrangement we could make for an early check in. We never received a response until the day before iur flight and that was an auto reply that someone might contact us within 2 weeks. After an overnight flight, a chaotic pass theough Immigration and a 1.5 hour drive we arrived overtired and cranky. We were showed on a map where the dining hall was but we had 10 minutes to get to it and get some food before it closed for meal change. Afterward we were stuck at reception with no breeze and no air conditioning for over 2 hours waiting for advertized check in time.
