    It is a nice resort but little inside. The resort is built nicely and has a clean swimming pool. The rooms are clean and washroom is nice too. We had massage which costed 800/- per person but it was okay we dint feel much relaxation.

    Just back from Ideal couldn't fault the place or staff. The food was excellent. My wife suffers from sciatica,but after seven specialist massages targeting the area she has benefited greatly. Rooms very clean. Nice pool.
