Food is below average, that is if they do have what you order from the menu. Set menu but after my 4th attempt they actually had the dish available. Good rate at the hotel but consider eating outside the hotel. Nice pool and lawns. Just okay

The hotel has good air conditioning and a fabulous 30 metre pool with a 10 metre diving board. Food is OK , Wifi is intermittent (better near reception).
