We had a wonderful stay in this resort. The room was neat and tidy. Bathroom was pretty clean. The balcony with a wooden swing was the show stealer. The location of the resort is on a hilltop. The view from the balcony was amazing. We could see lush green trees and the surrounding was so quiet that we could hear... More
