Location Location... Room size. Comfortable bed.
Relaxed comfortable nice pool good coffee
Golf carts/tuk tuk service around the hotel which helps a lot given that it’s situated on a hill. Friendly staff
It seems that this was a nice hotel about 20 years ago, but due to the lack of maintenance, proper care and limited refurbishment, it has come to generally poor and dated condition. There were a lot of defects in our room including broken door lock which had to be replaced, holes in the walls, paint chipping off and dirty mini bar/fridge with broken shelves and old cups inside. There was a nice infinity pool however there was no access because the pool was just “ornamental” - such a shame because could be the highlight. Old beds and chairs by the pool in poor condition. I’m glad we only stayed there for 1 night
It was located away from the busy city.
Unwelcoming staff. We felt as if they were very annoyed with us coming to stay there. On Tuesday, the hotel provides an extravagant buffet spread for the staff only while the guests get friend junk food options from the bar and aren’t given an option for better food. Breakfast and dinner for guests is not that tasty. Definitely nothing like what they prepare for the staff once a week and serve it in the same dinning area as the guests while the guests just watch from the pool. We had many issues and had already talked to a manager about our issues. But then figure out, they gave us a lower grade room than what we paid for. Of course, they didn’t have anything available for that night. To make up for it, the second night we were given the nicest room they offer and though, it was a nice gesture, we were still disappointed. They made a big deal how we’ll have our own jacuzzi to enjoy. Well, it was broken. The robes were dirty and not replaced from the previous guest. Lots of things were dated and broken. Uncomfortable beds. Would never go back or recommend it.
The layout of the property gave lots of privacy, the mini taxi service around the property was good. The gardens were well maintained and pretty.
Details like the curtain rail not fixed to ceiling, sheets not changed daily, the door handle fell off and we had to screw it back so we could get out.. these small details let it down.
