When booking my trip, I was excited to see the photos of the pretty garden and the four star rating sealed the deal. When I arrived I was taken to a twin bed room and the domestic worker helped up to move to a double bed room (which should have been done automatically as we're married). The new room smelled musty but got used to it. What was disturbing was the noise the first night from the tables for breakfast (above our heads) being scraped across the floor in the middle of the night, and other drunk guests sitting outside our room talking loudly. Then breakfast...the cereal, fruit and yoghurt were average, then we asked for scrambled eggs with mushrooms and cheese and got scrambled eggs with a portion of weird onion, green and red pepper and tiny bit of mushrooms next to it and a little bowl of cheese on the side...it is not four star presentation at all. The pool was nice but when sitting on the deck chairs the mosquitoes had a party on us so we went back to our room. So, therefore I say it was an average hotel.
