We stayed in the bungalow room with 3 beds, a loft upstairs with a kind bed and 2 queen size beds for the kids. It was great, lots of space, beautiful bathroom. Our cleaning lady had done some amazing art with the towels in the bathroom, we almost did not want to use them!
There are several swimming pools, so you are never far from one. We had a pool literally steps from our room, which is great to relax after a long day of travelling. We ate at the buffet, very simple, and can get busy but good food and quick. The bungalows are grouped a few together, in the middle of some great garden, it really feels you are in the middle of the nature.
The amazing thing is that this hotel is right by the ruins, as a matter of fact, you can see them from the hotel. It has a separate entrace, so in the morning, you have only the residents of the hotel queueing to get the tickets. It is definitely a plus. We had arranged a guide through the hotel, and he was fantastic, we learnt a lot, and saw a lot more than if we did not have him.
