Stay somewhere else. We wondered how a "hotel" could be so badly designed. Perhaps that wasnt its intent. The fridge looked like something the hotel bought as an afterthought. Its had a logo on the side advertising a drink and a light at the top. Clearly it wasnt ever meant to be installed in hotel rooms. A block of wood shoved at the back to vent it and its over all sloppy installation is further evident that it was a retrofit. The room is so tiny there is hardly room to put your bags anywhere. The bathroom has no vanity and its hard to find a spot to balance anything!
The receptionist was very sullen and didnt tell us anything about the "resort". It looked like it had a nice pool area but we didnt investigate. We stayed in a room on the top floor of 3 rooms. It was incredibly hot. With no fly screens,no air-conditioning and midges these rooms would be unbearable in summer. The outdoor table was falling apart. Other than that ok room. I think next time I would find a nice b and b. Its quite a drive to town from the Hotel, you couldnt walk.
