This property is tired and badly needs refurbishment, both to the rooms/facility and to the attitude of key members of the staff. The public areas are beautiful but then you have to go to rooms where there is no temperature control and you can't open the windows without letting in every biting insect imaginable, showers are broken, and TVs barely work.
