Very good location. Price is ok. Service in the kitchen should be better, but in the Reception is good. It could be much better if they invest in renewing some things like carpets, etc. Than again the location is great.

Hi, the road is very rough so is best if u have a 4x4 car. During rainning season the road could be worst, but is worth the trip. Do please rent rubber boots to go inside the park. Is a beautiful experience.
