I was very sceptical when we first got to the hotel but grew to love the place every day. Firstly they arranged transfers for us from the airport and also booked one of our tours for us to go to zip line and underground river.

This hotel was excellent. Beautiful pool, food excellent and very reasonable. We upgraded to a better room as the deluxe was very cramped. Highly recommended. Walking distance to a mall which is very useful too!

I would say it was good except for the failure of housekeeping to make up room on our last day. Though I asked the front desk guys two times to remind housekeeping still, it was not carried out. Aside from that concern everything was great

The hotel was disappointing. There were no connecting rooms and the rooms were very small. We had to pay more to upgrade to the family suite because I couldn't stand the thought of us being in a tiny room for four nights. My mom woke up with a panic attack because the room was so small! The service could have...
