As to food,...

We spend 2 nights here in a bungalow, clean rooms and very nice swimmingpool. Staff was not so friendly and the food was not very good, not much choice. WiFi doesn't go very well inside the room, only outside.

We were visiting from New Zealand. From the receptionist at the front desk to the staff in the kitchen you could not have found more helpful, accomodating people. I have traveled the world and I would rate this as one of the friendliest places to stay. The food was excellant, the ambiance was great. Value for money was very good.
