Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Every staff member was friendly and very helpful. The indoor pool was a pleasant surprise, along with the poolside drinks we ordered. Hotel located away from main township (but easily walkable), therefore a very quiet sleep. Well stocked in room bar with nibbles. Quick room service for breakfast & dinner. We would definitely return
