I was so looking forward to staying here, but sadly i was disappointed.
The staff seemed pleasant enough but totally incapable. The room was modern, sparce, no tea or coffee facilities,mini bar poor, bathroom was awful and the toilet dire. They have a ridiculous flush system and when you eventually manage to flush the loo you have muscles like a monster. The toilet constantly smelt. The air conditioning never worked and even when i asked nicely five times nothing was done. At 10 o'clock at night the room was 28 degrees so i asked for help and got a porter who said he knew it didnt work and did i want to move room......at 10oclock!!!! He gave me a fan.woopie do!!
The breakfast was average. The pool are wasn't bad, the pool lady was great. The views were lovely but be warned, take plenty of mosquito spray as i was eaten alive. The location was great which is a shame as the rest of the hotel could be so much more. I wouldn't stay again.
