It's nice place to stay, one side beach other side river. Good for relaxing but need to be careful with mosquito and insects. Service is poor but cheerful staff. But expensive too. Have river water tour by boat and nice pool. Breakfast is good.

The staff are extremely unhelpful, nasty and rude. No excuse for this at all. Much nicer... More

This is our second visit to this hotel. it is a cozy, clean and friendly place. A little old fashioned but I got to know they are refurbishing it shortly. the location is absolutely beautiful. Food was nice although the buffet was not so fancy. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed the stay.
