Reviewed 9 October 2016 via mobile

The place of hotel is nice, the front office staff aren't professional and impolite, room is fare, not that much good, lighting and air conditioning in the hotel in general is poor, pools are very good (I believe it's the pest in this experience) restaurants is quite ordinary
