4/5 Good

It’s the little things that add up!
Great location and property just less than I minutes drive from the main strip. The service was thoughtful and therefore, just great! Little things like a mildly heated room, daily fruit and coffee/tea with two choices (yes - not just one but two choices) of milk, cookies, umbrellas, and attentive staff who ensure that your every need is taken cared of. All in all just a great stay. So why not 5 stars? It would have been except for but just one thing... The only improvement I’d recommend is for a WIFI booster. The signal is very weak and therefore, if you are editing at night to upload your great adventures, this is not the place to do it!

3/5 Okay

Poor value
1, No shower curtains=the floor gets wet. I slipped and hit my head and shoulder on the door jam, It is so easy to install a curtain or screen across the shower 2. Ventilation is poor as there are 3 ventilation points, viz the bathroom window which opens into the outside walkway; the back door which opens into the garden; the window beside the gack door which has a fly screen. As the back window is the only opening with a flyscreen. it is the only ventilation point with protection from sandflies. Because of securities reasons, we can only leave the bathroom window open. There is no aircondition for ventilation. We were bitten by sandflies 3. The place is in need of refurbishment. 4. The breakfast was adequate. Having said that, the chef was very friendly and she was the highlight of the stay 5. Value for money.it is really poor. We paid $772.32 for 2 nights. We won't put this place in our must stay list
Stayed 2 nights in Dec 2019
