          The plublic area is kind of nice kinda like the staff!! The hotel is dated and musty. Amenities are worn. Spa was nice, food was average cafeteria quality, impossible to get a proper cocktail overall check out other options unless it's a bargain .

          I totally enjoyed this resort with its beautiful and friendly staff. The place is beautifully decorated and very well kept. Pool is the centrepiece of the beautiful garden. Great place to relax and rest after spending 9 days in a 4x4 on the mainland.
