We ended up here when then travel agent messed up our booking. It was just dreadful. It looks ok from the outside but is in dire need of renovation.
Unfortunately our rooms were on the 2nd floor overlooking the main road and the buses and tuk tuks started at 5am.
The pool was depressing. We had to go down a rickety fire escape to get there.
We had a connecting room, though not one which connected with our kids' room. the connecting door didn't shut properly and you could see light through the gap.
The buffet was dreadful. No real choice and an empty restaurant. Breakfast was no better.
We felt the staff did what they could, but it didn't really help.
