Our travel agent of 20 years insisted we must go to this place. He was so true, it turned out to be an amazing experience. The owner loves his property. No cutting corners. Excellent buildings, great maintenance, smiling and helping staff, 250 helping employees for only 80 rooms. Wonderful spas and massages, attentive security guards, new vehicles and polite drivers....
