    Rooms are perfect and the food is great! The environment is quiet and has good security. My family loved it and will book again in future. Will just advise people to carry mosquitoes repellent but other than that it is an excellent gate away.

    Nice and clean. Good service. Staff was very helpful. The cofee at breakfast could have been stronger. You need a taxi to go anywhere if you are not driving. The dinner was very tasty. Nice swimming pool.
