This is our second visit.Wonderful place for a relaxing holiday. Beautiful grounds and great location. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Food is excellent and varied. The swimming pool needs a little attention. Hope the new Sunset Bar and Floating Restaurant is a success.

Stayed here for 3 nights during Christmas. Good resort to stay with family. Rooms are nice enough. Kids play area was enjoyed by my 3 year old. Nothing much to do outside the resort though and nearby tourist spots are at least an hour away. Ideal for 2 nights stay. Pool was nice and clean. Food and staff are highlights....
