5/5 Excellent

I stayed here before, 2 1/2 years ago. My family joined me this time and it was a great place to be together and as a base for excursions.

We stayed there two years ago, and decided to stay there a night to revisit some memories. We had the same waitress and bartender as two years ago. That was really nice to see. The place kind of seems to be falling apart. Doesn’t seem like many people stay there or it could’ve been just the timing though. It is such a beautiful place. It just didn’t have the same feel to it as last time.

2/5

Can't go by the pictures or the stars.

The hotel has not been kept up over time. The public areas and rooms are very dated. The rooms are not very clean and they made little to no effort to avoid insects in the rooms. Our room had gaps around the door where anything smaller than a rat could get in. Our room was infested with ants. Other than breakfast, other meals were at Cattleman's which is a restaurant next door. Food was good but took forever to get it. The hotel said free wifi. That was true, although that is only in the lobby. In addition, after the first two hours, their wifi was not connected to the internet. The only redeeming quality about this hotel were the people. The staff was very nice including the manager. She tried to make it right, but we ended up moving to another hotel.

Stayed 8 nights in Mar 2018

3/5

Not walkable, everything is broken, weak internet

They were nice to let us check in early. The toilet didn’t work, called the front desk, a repair person came to fix it, the next morning and then the next didn’t work again. A guest should not have to deal with. This place has a bar in the middle of the pool. They have tried to hard to make it look “African” but it looks like Disney .
