Avoid!- Avoid! Avoid, Hotel and area. Go elsewhere
As I said above, the hotel needs a huge face lift. Bedrooms need paint, new beds, new furniture, new bathrooms, new light fixtures, ESPECIALLY new doors and locks, outside lighting, ordered parking, a better pool, more lights in the surrounding areas, landscaping, new restaurant, even some new employees would be a nice addition to some unfriendly waitresses...Even improving the breakfast choices with one or two more things can help. The area where the hotel is located is horrible (I mean it), and the GPS directions are WRONG!.

En General Bien. Buena atención
En general estuvo bien, las instalaciones y piscina están un poco descuidadas pero las habitaciones son amplias y cómodas y la zona verde es muy bonita. El desayuno es rico y hasta cóctel de bienvenida nos dieron, la atención es muy buena, pero la ubicación está largo del centro.

Mooie plek voor watertrips
Vanuit deze mooie plek kun je trips naar de mangrove en 2 eilanden regelen.Maak wel afspraken via het hotel en niet met de booteigenaar! Afspraken kunnen anders door een betere deal gewoon niet worden nagekomen. Het ontbijt is wel karig. De keuze tussen Koffie OF Jus d'orange had ik eerlijk gezegd nog nooit eerder meegemaakt en de hoeveelheid en keuze houdt sowieso niet over. Rust is ook niet gegarandeerd. Gasten met ghettoblasters worden als zijnde normaal geaccepteerd.
