    Relaxing at the pool side & the breakfast.

    Not everything I expect to be....Parking problem during peak season.Guard was not helpful at lobby.Book for hillview room, but its not hill view (Main Road), has to pay a lot more for sea-view room. No Wi-Fi.The room did not provide room slippers. Kids walking into the lift with wet swim wear.

    Food was not up to our expectation, room was dusty & sandy.

  • Family with children

    The location is great.

    The service and attitude from some staff are not very pleasant towards asian.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Hard to select only one thing as everything was completely enjoyable. The room was beautifully and tastefully decorated; the beds and pillows were really comfortable. The grounds, including the swimming pool, were gorgeous and everything was spotlessly clean. The staff was unfailingly courteous and obliging. The breakfast was also excellent with plenty of choice. For those who do not want to pay higher prices for hotel meals, there are plenty of reasonable eating places right outside the hotel.

    The only negative related to a jungle "walk" tour which we booked through the hotel. We were told that there would not be much walking when we booked the tour. It turned out to be more of jungle "trek" of 2 hours involving a great deal of climbing up steep paths which were sometimes quite treacherous. We are older (57 and 67), not in the best physical shape, and not used to the heat. At one point, we did not know if we would be able to make it; however, we managed to soldier through somehow, although it exhausted us for several days afterwards. Had we injured ourselves or fallen ill, it would have been very difficult to get out. The tour was was not organized by the hotel itself, but we informed the staff how dangerous it is not to inform people that they must be in good physical condition.
