  • The staff was very nice, very helpful. The cleaning staff was nice and worked a lot, but the bed and bedding was terrible...I couldn't feel clean in my room. The showers were cold, cold, cold. I hate to say it, but I'm 95% sure the pool was the source of a double ear infection despite showering before and after using. They are building a new place...hopefully that will be better, and hopefully they will invest in beds and sheets. The current building is little more than sheetrock and tin.

  • They invested in novelties like outdoor cinema and in-ground pool at the expense of basic amenities like hot water and decent mattresses. No hot water. The "mattress" is a thin, uncomfortable cushion. The "rooms" are like tall, ugly cubicles, separated by "walls" sloppily made from wooden panels covered with a hasty coat of teal paint. We found ants in our room, but only after they invaded our bags. I was told that happens sometimes after it rains. Location is excellent, pool is nice.
