I read some of the recent glowing reviews and I thought either I was at the wrong place or maybe the others had stayed in 2 star accomodation before this.
Look its not really bad, but for the money paid I'd expect better. It really looks a bit tired actually. Rooms are big and OK. However this power out for hours on end is just crazy. No hot water after 9 (I think) and not on again till 6, then off again!? A 5 star resort? Power out through the night? If you need to "go" at 2am, find a torch provided (ours very low on power), find your way in, balance said torch so you can actually see what your doing and hope it doesn't fall over.
How about we just spend a bit more on fuel for the generator?
Also, wifi, provided free (only when power on) but only in a tiny courtyard with 4 tables and chairs in the open. Each afternoon a gaggle of travellers were hunched down trying to "do their stuff" on ledges or the floor. Wouldn't the huge bar area (where they could sell you a drink) be a better idea? And even better when the power is on! Most people get back from the local game park around 4 then we all have to wait for 2 hours for lights and the wifi to be switched on.
It is nuts.
