          Very relaxing if you are just happy to lie around and do nothing in nature. Otherwise not very much to do at all. Only food available is from the restaurant at their specific meal times or room service. Food was very nice though.

          Road conditions this time of the year are good. Great road up till 900 m from the resort. For the last 900m they are in the process of resurfacing so it's still in pretty good condition.
