Good points is that there are a few little local restaurants to eat breakfast and dinner in the resort area. The food at the hotel/resort restaurant isn't worth looking at, although for westerners there is eggs, fruit, and bread. It's best to either eat out or go shopping at the grocery store. The rooms (condos) are clean and we get free maid service every day. The pool is big and is a 5-minute walk from the condo. The hotel rooms are on the pool area. There is a shuttle to bring you to and from the lobby of the hotel but they run about 10 minutes late. You get there faster just walking.
Bad points: the business center is just three computers in the middle of the noisy lobby, there are huge rats but my husband says it's because we're in a marina near water (still!), they want to charge us $4 for each dirty washcloth they couldn't get clean from when we washed our feet after adventuring one day (this is not to buy new ones), the wifi is only guaranteed to work in the lobby and if you sit in there right chair at the pool you might get it to work out there. We have been able to get the passwords of the local restaurants and we sit there and use theirs. They're very friendly and helpful!! There is no transportation service to/from the hotel. Taxis run about $10-25 each way. You can rent a car for the day for about $25 or a driver for 6 hours for about $30-36/day, which is the better choice in our opinion. They drive on the left side of the road. Not all taxi drivers know where you're going or how to get there. It can take a lot longer in lots of traffic and sometimes on very bumpy roads. Get a driver or rent a car!
Oh yes, the kitchen only has 4 spoons, forks, bowls, coffee cups, plates of two sizes, a hot water pot, a microwave, a small fridge, and a two burner stove.
