Negative Reviews

Standard Rooms Need More Amenities

Guests noted about the lack of equipment in most of the rooms such as microwaves and mini refrigerators. They said that the large space can accommodate these appliances, so that they can have a more satisfying and complete experience in their stay.

Cheap-looking Dining Area

Although the foods served are divine, the restaurant looks cheap. The staff needs to work on cleaning, as hygiene is an issue raised by the guests. Immediate upgrade and update on the restaurant is highly suggested so that it can conform to the amazing food quality that the restaurant serves.

No Indoor Smoking

Smokers find the rooms to be quite unpleasant due to their strict “no smoking indoors” policy. However, the balconies and patios provide smoking areas, where guests can enjoy their breaks.
