5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The hotel is exceptionally well maintained inside and out. It is located in a rather nondescript location just off the Hwy which makes it rather noisy all day. The staff is very warm and welcoming; however they should be more fluent in English (I assume English speaking persons are their majority guests) to facilitate better interactions.

All the hotel was very clean, the areas are very nice and in excellent conditions. But the pool was to cold, no body can be in there because the temperature of the water was to cold.

5/5 Excellent

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

The swimming pool and the size of the room. Some of the service staff appeared to not really enjoy their job. Especially noticed that in the restaurants. The service was underwhelming.
