The property was very nice. My daughter and I enjoyed our stay. Overall the property is great, just need a few tweets. The private pool wasn’t that clean and the sofa was stained. They’re not a deal breaker for me. Overall the staff is excellent and the property was beautiful overall. I would definitely visit there again and recommend it wholeheartedly.

Beautiful hotel, but horrible location. The hotel is in the middle of surrounding neighborhoods that are in poverty. Directions were hard to get around, definitely need a car. Everytime we would navigate to the hotel we would find ourselves hitting many potholes along the dirt road circling around to find the entrance. Location was 10-15 minutes away from anything. Just wanted to warn other as it was a complete shock to us and made our trip very inconvenient as I was pregnant and the drive was so uncomfortable. Also the food was very bland, not sure I would return but they definitely tried with the aesthetics of the hotel.

There’s a lot of construction and it’s right next to a village so the view isn’t great! But the place is very nice, the staff is super nice and made our stay so amazing!

Jonathan and Ruel at the front desk was helpful. Whereas other staff at the front desk and restaurant were not. It felt like they were doing you a favor, with a poor attitude. And, you need a better chef and food options. Sorry... but honestly, the food and food service was yuk! Improve in these areas and maybe we will return and be happy to pay more. It has great potential.

Nice hotel but bad internet service, no TV. Jacuzzi would not heat, restaurant menu was limited, out of food and drink selections. Too isolated from restaurants and market. Front desk attendant, Jonatan, very helpful with booking tours, liked that.
