Location looked great on map, but $30 for cab to closest town or restaurant (one-way). Beautiful rooms, large pool with waterfalls, several 60-minute free outings offered. Tours are VERY EXPENSIVE and may not happen for lack of participants. Food was awful and over-priced (mold on bread, flies on fruit), staff rude and less than hospitable stating clearly that "there are different rules for different people" (no late check out for us but for our room neighbors it's okay)......and manager refused to talk to us directly after we requested to do so...... this place is a rip-off!!
BEWARE: historic villa apartment are abandoned US Army barracks.....
