Spent eight nights at this hotel. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The driver who picked us up from the airport was especially friendly and the staff were quick to answer questions and help us with tours etc. Breakfast didn't really cater for my Western palate, but that's my problem- the food was clean, well prepared and...

Food was not great for breakfast, but you could order from the kitchen also. Helped planning some of the tours. Underground river tour is sensational because of the awesomeness of the site. Tour staff was also good.

Hotel is new and staff very friendly and always smiling. It is rather overpriced for the facilities available. Restaurant food is ok for breakfast but not as expected for lunch and dinner. Room is ok but only given one key to ensure electricity and aircon are off when out. Dead bugs appear on the sheets. You will get the feeling...

Price does not incl VAT and hotel tax you're better of staying at best western at the same price and a much better and cleaner hotel, room and bed so small, free breakfast average which is part of their selling point, not worth it
