Dinner in the Restaurant was good. Room was tired and needing both a program of maintenance and a good clean. Lack of fly screens to hold at bay the sand flies and mosquitoes.

Very nice spot but the rooms could probably do with an upgrade. There were no sink facilities justvtye bathroom vanity. A jug and coffee tea etc but no microwave or even plates. A couple of power point plugs looked dodgy and loose at the wall, the dryer only worked when I wiggled the socket!! Cupboards smelt a bit musty. Otherwise ok

The room smelt so bad of bleach we had to have all the doors and windows open all night. The bulbs were not working for the main lights and to top it all of the fire alarm low battery started beeping at 3am. Apart from that it is a lovely location
