Negative Reviews


Cookery classes and spa overbooked

The cooking classes featured at the school runs full most of the time and guests have a long wait for their turn. Spa is also booked all the time and guests have to make reservations well in advance to have a chance to use the services.


Insects at restaurant

Dining at the restaurant is bothersome as there are flies and mosquitoes.


Air conditioning at uncontrollable temperatures

The climate control in the rooms is set at freezing temperatures and air conditioner cannot be turned off making guests switch off the climate control completely and open windows.
