Kuriftu is a nice resort, the view and scenery is good. The hotel is currently under expansion and the new rooms are 5 minutes rough road away. No Shuttle and it's dusty to walk on foot. The rooms are good, but the lighting is not adjustable and almost dark. I found the service very poor. To start from the room, we was promised a lake view room upon reservation, but I found out it actually is not!!! There is no telephone in the room and you have to call by your own mobile phone to access room service. The fare for 1 night is $100, a package deal with breakfast, movie theater, massage, spa services, kayaking and sporting services. But when you ask to use the services, all you find is either you have to wait long queue or that it's not working. We asked for the movie theater for example and were told that the overhead projector is occupied with a meeting, Shame!!! The package included breakfast and guess what, we were 5 minutes late for the breakfast since we need to travel on foot to the old resort to get the service and were told that breakfast time is up and we need to pay to get the service. This is a REAL SHAME for a resort of this standard. Very poor customer service all in all and compared to kuriftu, the new neighboring Liesak Resort (http://liesakresort.com/) on lake babogaya is much better with great customer care and value for money.
