Stayed 2 nights on a tour. Rooms were clean, food was good, surroundings well kept, and staff were always smiling. Saw some animals and birds on the grounds from our room as well as from the patio while at breakfast. I would definitely return.

The large building is the restaurant and downstairs is the bar and nightly entertainment area. A smaller building is reception and there’s a large tent that holds the spa treatments.
