We came here with 130 participants. Dinner was buffet but there was no waiter around. When the food buffet was empty no one was present to refill. The kitchen was close. This was surprising as it was only 8pm. Front desk was also empty. Barhroom was run down and smelly. Most of the facilities had worn out look. The scenery...

The apartment is very spacious, but it is very evident that maintenance had been poor. Broken sink pipe at the small kitchen, no hot water, cockroaches and lizards crawling everywhere, non working sockets, dusty floor, the list...

Apartment was clean and spacious, with a stunning view of the ocean beach and river! The resort staff are helpful, warm and friendly, contributing to making our stay so memorable. Food and service in the restaurant is fantastic. The resort is close to many tourist activities in the area, but also has its own entertainment within the resort as well..........

We booked the apartment with 3 bedrooms a day earlier for our stay on 1st of February 2015 despite the initial hesitant from one of the staff manning the front desk. The reason being was that most of the guest will check out on the day we're coming in, so there may be not enough time for them to prepare...
