Arriving to the hotel we were told that the hotel added a 5 % fee if the room was payed for by credit card. Since the hotel is rather expencive we did not carry that much cash around so we had to pay by credit card. This should have been mensioned when booking the hotel.
The breakfast was not to my taste. They did have fruit and yogurt but the only bread they had was toast, only the toaster did not work properly so you had do wait ages if you wanted toasted bread. Other then that they had sweat bread and eggs.
The pool is good and the pool staff was nice, the rest of the staff was average, not very nice or happy but they did help us arrange a big taxi for our onwards jurney.
The rooms are spacious and nice but the shower is pretty bad. The hotel is located far from the city center and the beach but it is easy and cheap to take a tuktuk anythere in town.
Overall the hotel is a good place to stay but the staff and reception as well as the breakfast could be a lot better.
