Tourbillon Hotel is a little outside the town, and I loved the jungle feeling there.
The rooms are nice (big and comfortable), bathrooms could be a little nicer (soap in the shower, which was used already?). The bedding seemed a little dirty at first, but at a closer look there were stains which seemed to live through washing process. So there is defenitly potential for cleaning the sheets..
the air condition is a little though to handle.
Breakfast ist very good, especially if you like sweet breaktfast. Ham and coffee could be better.
Lunch was good for a reasonable price.
But: don't waste your time and money on dinner at Tourbillon - take a taxis to the city. There is a buffet but you can eat a'la card as well, which is what we did. Pasta and salad were much to expensive for what we got. And even if the food was kind of ok, I expected a lot more for my money. So don't waste yours. and the athmosphäre was terrible (dinner buffet, empty buffet table for breakfast buffet in the middle of the room).
It seems they don't change sheets at the table after usage, which resulted in not very clean tables...
The best thing about Tourbillon is Paula from the Spa. As my back hurt from the flight, I thought to get a massage, which was the best idea ever. Paula really gives the best of massages! Get an appointment and see 8or rather feel) yourself :)
Generally the staff was very friendly and helpful.
We don't regret our choice on taking this hotel, but there have to be better ones. (i could not check tripadvisor before booking :( ).
All in all our stay at tourbillon was ok.
(1 of 2 elevators wasn't working during our stay of 4 nights.)
