1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Never going back
1, bed sheets were not changed upon our checking in; 2, we were not well received as your VIP customer; 3, they refused to give us an upgrade to the room just next to us which was free the entire time we were there, and this is even when we told them our sheets were dirty & AC was not working; 4, the food was really bad; 5, the staff are not well trained. We are definitely not going back, and for sure will not recommend any friends.

Peaceful Gem
The hotel is quite beautiful and the rooms are in excellent condition. We had the bed and breakfast option but sadly though the breakfast which was being hosted by their sister hotel Tropical village wasn't up to standard. Also they did not have any seafood in their menu which was a bit disappointing as thats one delicacy to be enjoyed at the cost. overall the rooms were good, clean and very spacious the view overlooking the pool is very nice. Special mention to Rogers and Joram manning the bars, their treatment was nice
