A large hotel with a 'resort' look to it.
The rooms are a little on the small side and could do with a bit of tarting up however it was clean, quiet and had plenty of hot water.
Despite the hustle & bustle on the busy road outside the hotel is surprisingly quiet. The bar area gets a little lively but the restaurant was very quiet. That said the food was tasty, with a good selection and the beer was nice and cold!
The much advertised 'olympic sized swimming pool' was being clean during my visit so I couldn't try it out however once complete it will certainly be an attraction.
Bring mosquito coils & repelent with you, the place is swarming with them - you have been warned!
