                          Pool and jacuzzi was very dirty, could not use it. Room was extremely hot, no fan or aircon. We asked for a fan, because it is unusual hot with only 2 small windows, but they could not help us. We could not sleep because of the heat in the room.

                          Everything about the place was enjoyable and we had a great time throughout our stay. The facilities was great, the kitchen was well equipped and the jacuzzi was amazing. Definitely going back and recommending it to friends.
