Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The view from the hotel on the back side is nice. Ventilation is needed. The stability of the flooring seemed to be insecure and when it got wet it was slippery with stairs that were unsafe.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Great Location and View. However, there is no air conditioner in the family room, and there was no proper door to the room despite the lodge being so open to outsiders. The key did not work on the door either.
