As a single female, chose this hotel for security and location. I will admit it may be hard to find the first time but there is a wide walkway straight to the Foordham gardens.
When I returned early evening the turn down service revealed a most inviting and lovely lit room.
Woe is me - all alone in such a romantic room - What a waste!!
The terrace is higher than all the neighboring hotels and there is a lovely entry way, a spa for massages Ooh lala!! Come here with someone you love!
The shower, toilet and AC worked perfectly. There is WIFI but no business centre for those wishing to use the hotel computer.
The drawback I found was the front desk who didn't seem to be able to provide recommendations, transit information or names of fair guides. When I requested a recommended tour to the Spice Farm they called a fellow who charged me a hefty price (entry fee included I was assured) Somehow the communication broke down as I understood the price included a guide - but it only covered the driver. I picked up a very nice, informative guide who deserved a big tip. The driver, I learned was minimally paid by the "company". Either do not go with someone called "Babu" or "Bobo" or bargain him down to 10US dollars for the trip and tip both the driver and guides.
