  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

We enjoyed more than expected from the property and the staff. The property location, the staff and the services we received were exceptional. We cannot possibly list down the names of all the staff who provided us the attentive and personal services. But feel that there were staffs who certainly needed to be commended for their service. Lionnel Dias particularly impressed us with his attentive and personal service. We must mention Jenston's name as well who was also good. Perhaps the property management should be made aware of the commendation these staffs have received.

My room had its own decent size pool - it was amazing. The room had also a locked door leading to neighbouring room- the problem was that I could hear screaming baby whenever family was at home, I should not have heard all the noises as it takes away from relaxation. Otherwise everything else was great and really enjoyed my stay. Highly recommended, beautiful and well maintained place.

    It was in the middle of a very run down area, but it was in its own ground which were well looked after. The resort itself was excellent and well maintained, well worth what I paid. Food good and cooked in hygienic conditions, and very clean and tidy. Not much else in the vicinity, but it was a new experience which suited me down to the ground. A very enjoyable weeks break.
