Two rooms by the pool area and a few more rooms on the ground floor. It’s clean, the rooms are quite big and I don’t really have much to say about it, which means it’s bland and good as a transit stay before moving on and/or just arriving from the airport.
The staff is very friendly, but invisible. Although they tell you they are there for your comfort and reinsuring you that they are always there for you, this is not the case. Upon our arrival our driver had to honk the horn, ring the gate bell and make a phone call as it seemed the whole place was asleep. This was at 10 am. The same thing every time we needed attention, whether sitting by the pool, at breakfast, at dinner, in the evening we had to go searching for staff instead of them just being there. I do recommend eating out, not at the hotel, as well as having a plan on what to do if you don’t want to be left alone. In their own commercial guide book they mention their chef a lot, who supposedly is big, wonderful and always attentive. We never saw him. Like I mentioned earlier, the staff is nice… when you get a hold of them.
