          We were collected in a shuttle from the Greyhound stop and arrived during a downfall, making it feel like a tropical spot. It's secluded, with palm trees and a Buddhist influence with statues and shrines. The main area is large, clean and friendly and the...More

          We stayed here for one night, and it was very nice! It's such a cozy spot, with lots of vegetation around, which I'm a sucker for. The rooms were clean with a nice en suite bathroom. The kitchen and dining area what clean and nice,...More

          Was pretty disappointed with this place. The common spaces and reception feel like you've walked straight into some sort of night club. Music plays all day and most of the night. I didn't see a person over 30 and a lot of people smoke. The...More
