        The hotel was better than the reviews and the pictures on line. The outside looks ordinary but the rooms were clean and the bathrooms were modern. The restaurant is basic but the food was fine and friendly staff. Close to national park

        Average buffet saved by its hugely convenient location close to the park entrance. Didn't stay at hotel so can't judge, but would guess there must be better choices in the area. Won't do you any harm...but won't live long in the memory either.

        Horrible place. Rooms were filthy with dust, old wooden bed frame crumbling and the food was BAD. Location is close to the National Park. That's the only positive. Fine if you're after BASIC lodging but overpriced for anything else.

        Don't go here! The staff is very rude and the rooms are NOT clean. We found an old dead gecko in our room stuck in a door who looked like it had been there for a few weeks. Disgusting! And the restaurant is the worst,...More
