“The rooms on the right of the gardens seem to be better than those on the left near the entrance.”

“The rooms are bungalow style, ventilated, and atmosphere controlled. The dining area and pool is close by and security is a priority.”

“All rooms were single story clusters or 2 or 3, with patios. I'd say all locations are good”
  • Small rooms, but fine for a night. And the location, food and service makes up for it
  • Small bathroom, but large shower
  • Alcove by the bathroom for toiletries or clothes (not much room in the bathroom for them)
  • Inside the room. Loved the mural on the wall, towel swan and soft bed
