Positive Reviews


Basic But Reasonable

Rooms are basic but tolerable and a nice size. Housekeeping is to a decent standard and there is lots of hot water. The towels are a bit rough, and the breakfast can get boring, but you can easily deal with it. You will have to get used to the plastic plates and cutlery. You can also order poached eggs or omelettes. There are plenty of great places to eat around as well.


Laid Back Friendly Energy

There is a serene, relaxed vibe around the hotel. You can certainly relax and “go with the flow.” At least that's what it's like inside the hotel. Once you venture out, it's not dangerous, but you may feel hassled by the “bumpsters.” These are people who try to sell you anything they can and they don't like taking no for an answer.


Excursion Could Break Your Heart

If you have time, take an outing with the tour operator. It may break your heart though once you view the poverty.

Negative Reviews


What Do You Expect?

The hotel is a bit run down, but you are in a certain part of the world where the standards are not so high. The tennis court and play area are not worth bothering with. There is nothing attractive about the hotel exterior either. They could at least paint it and add some shrubbery. It would work wonders!


All Inclusive Is Exclusive

If you choose the all-inclusive option, you may be in for a surprise. You have to pay extra for basic things like a fridge. All-inclusive doesn't necessarily mean “all” at this hotel.


Working For Tips

Even though the staff is helpful, you get the feeling that they are doing it just for the tips. Sincerity and genuine overall courtesy is lacking.
