I've stayed here twice already - once in 2008 in peak season (March/ April). Great value for money, especially because the rooms have AC and mosquito nets.
Pool is clean and hotel was lovely taken care of.
Second stay was in July 2013. It was low season and unfortunately raining for 10 days straight. However, besides the weather the hotel had decided to renovate the "common area", i.e. entrance hall, pool tables etc. They started at 7am and ended late at night. It wasn't too much of a vacation this time to be woken up by hammering and sawing of ethernit ...
In addition there was no hot water the first 2 days (which is quite bad in weather of 12-14 degrees Celsius), and the internet didn't work on some devices at all.
We could however negotiate to not pay the full price due to the inconveniences. Plus points for that.
Generally a great location to stay at in peak season, to be avoided in low/ renovating season. Booking in advance is always recommendable.
Would anyways stay here again next time as the location is great (away from the noisy party street).
