I arrived late and the other guests had piled a bunch of dirty dishes on my bed which was unpleasant. But other than that the staff was very friendly and helpful and the facilities were ok

8/10 Very good

Receptionist was lovely. Property was clean...just very busy, and people were smoking near the entryway, which was a turnoff. I didn’t use the common room or pool. Kitchen was petty gross but it was In the middle of meal was better in the morning so they’d obviously cleaned it up overnight. No aircon in room and it was pretty warm and very humid. Surprisingly quiet.
