it was a great experience. I wasn't expecting the rooms to be like that but OMG!!!!!!! speechless. The room is very clean, a spacious bathroom, a very beautiful view of the park where you can see a deer browsing the grass. Ok food is not that good enough but it is acceptable i think they can do much better. Also...

The staff were very nice, Food was average and the place was okay. Didnt exactly fall in love the place but it was good. Just wished they tarmacked the road to the hotel from the gate. The dusty gravel wasnt appealing

Great location, serene environment, lovely spacious rooms. top class service from all the staff members especially at the restaurant. We enjoyed the food (had all the meals:breakfast,lunch & dinner). Only downside is the signage which is not easily visible when turning right from the main road. We will definitely be back when with our little one.

The location of this lodge is fine- the grounds are beautiful and near the lake. The rooms are poorly constructed and look old although the property is only 8 years old. The staff was friendly but the food was mediocre. There are monkeys that come around and are a bit intimidating.

The room was in the last block so it was very quiet and serene. The front office, restaurant staff and room steward were extremely friendly and were always ready to help. They went the extra mile to make my stay very comfortable.
