    I stayed in this hotel almost for two weeks for my first time and I came back here again about 2 months later. Markets and downtown areas are walkable from the hotel and I also liked their foods. Especially the grilled chicken was awesome! :)

    The staff were very friendly, helpful and provided prompt service for anything asked. They were very supportive of any request. The ground floor rooms were perfect if you had children, eating tables out front and pool straight out in front.
