Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Hugely disappointing. Labelling this a 5* is the epitome of false advertising, it's a 3* (at best). Sura must have assigned themselves the rating. The pool area is horrendous, the rooms are tiny (even the 'Deluxe Double') and the staff were rather unhelpful as well. The barman didn't even know what a moijito was, he bought over some toxic concoction that could have killed Rasputin. Avoid this place at all cost!
