    Is the pool heated? How is the Internet throughout the hotel? We are considering this hotel and the Malaika. Has anyone stayed at both of them that can offer any advice or comments as far as service, the environment, the food, etc.? Also I love to get up and swim laps in the pool in the morning. Any advice on which one has the better pool for this?
