Ten out of ten for cleanliness

It's getting hot in here
Free Wi-Fi is offered throughout the hotel, with the best signal strength being found in the lobby area. Some guests have commented that the lobby is not air-conditioned making it an uncomfortable environment to sit and surf the web.
Bit of a walk for a morning cuppa
Some guests have mentioned that they would've preferred if tea and coffee making facilities were available in the rooms. That said, fresh coffee is available from the bars and restaurants on-site and guests are more than welcome to take them back to their rooms.
Although not the fault of the hotel, many guests who've stayed here have commented on the presence of mosquitos. Guests are strongly advised to invest in a good insect repellent before travelling.
