Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
Customer service was exceptional. We called the reception saying we'll be late and the receptionist understood the importance of our situation and left the keys in a safe spot with instructions. I didn't like the plan of the bathroom because when you bathe there was water flowing into the next side where the potty is located. You can adjust if it's a 2-night stay but not more than that Also, the bath towels were not clean.
