We booked this hotel for the last three nights of our honeymoon. At first, when you get there, it looks lovely as the garden is very fresh and a very vibrant green. Can't complain about the garden at all. The man behind reception was very friendly. We were very excited by the fact that the hotel had hummingbirds visiting frequently (they were really special to see), only they never filled up the feeders, which, although that sound really petty, it's just one of those things that could have made the stay better - it just felt as if there was no attention to detail. The room was fine, basic, but we thought it was well over-priced for what you got. The window in the bathroom was jammed shut (to prevent it falling open) with a sweet wrapper and so there were lots of gaps in the windows, making the whole bathroom a breeding zone for mosquitos. Inevitably, the Mosquitos then got into the room, and my legs were bitten to death during the night. You can't help having mosquitos, I realise that, however if the window was fixed properly, I doubt they would have managed to get into the room. The one thing we found incredibly poor was that our minibar had three half-consumed drinks in it. I don't think I should have to be the person who cleans up after the previous guests. As I said, the man behind the desk was very friendly, however we found the women who worked there to be very rude and they seemed to have a 'CBA' sort of attitude. Overall, very overpriced for what the room was and the staff just didn't seem to be bothered about you. Maybe they we just having a bad few days, but that's no excuse in the hotel industry. I don't often complain about places, however this was exceptionally bad.
