    Room was nice and spacious, the kids got their own makeshift bed. Facilities are old but well maintained. There was the small issue of a mosquitoes but that was quickly sorted by the house keeping team. Breakfast was boring for a supposed 4 star experience....More

    This is a crap hotel. Unfriendly staff. Incorrect information. Very dated. I will not return there even if it was free. How this hotel is rated 4 star is beyond me. This at best is a overpriced 2 star hotel.

    Hi yes all rooms have en suite bathrooms. The 30 Green Annexe Rooms have large showers and toilet facilities only. The other 56 rooms have a toilet, shower and bath. Thanks Paul
