    Good, smart and really good service and lots of fun activities you can do around it. It has a good view of the waterfall and has good rooms for families. The new rooms are very good and smart. Very fun and good quality food.

    Lovely fully equipped room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Easy walk to the falls from the hotel (or taxi). Great food in the evening on the terrace. Breakfast was a wonderful experience, lots of choice.
