We won this trip as a "benefit" in a silent auction. We tried to "stick it out" as many mentioned in reviews but only lasted 5 of the 7 nights. Our hotel room was clean (except for the black grout marks in the shower...nasty)...but has not been updated in years...decades. No restaurant on the property as it seemed to be deserted. It appeared some were able to get drinks from the bar at the pool.
I realize the country is in need of rain but the property seems to need some landscaping work as well.
Nobody seemed very happy to work there and we were the ones daily greeting the staff.
When we left 2 days earlier than expected and checked into the Fairmont it was quite a pleasant change.
