What a great property and could have been the best experience ever if it wasn't salted by the poor welcome. Reception staff needs better training. The gentleman we spoke to was not very friendly. You don't advice your guests to not disturb others or not use the pool after regular hours, no educated person shall do that anyways. Also, when...

After requesting for another room, the staff told us that it is"reserved" by another guest's request for a "good room" which meant that if you can them only then you get...
