I am in agreement with other recent reviews. I have to say was a little reticent at first. The location out of town and in what at first feels like a rather odd area, turned out to be a plus once discovering the noise and delightful (for a few hours) chaos inside the city. Its close enough to everything including the airport which was a big bonus when we were trying to squeeze so much into such a short time. I think a bit more could be done with the inner courtyards and inside lounge as the initial impression wasn't great. However, this was a place that really grew on me. The service and hospitality was fantastic. The food was good (agree re. the music but when I asked at breakfast, they immediately turned it off). A problem with operating our shower was sorted so quickly and pleasantly. Wi-fi available in one part of the building, if they can extend to the rooms, would be really great. Our room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated with very comfortable beds and a couple of others that I visited with the bathtubs and more modern bathroom style were even more appealing. Very nice colonial style building, lovely garden, SUPER pool area and extremely good rates. I was on a recce for a group tour with ladies later in the year and after looking at several other places, will not hesitate to come back here.
