We stayed here for two nights, location of the hotel is awesome. Food is average, not that great. Portion size for the price charged is very high, service is very slow, room is ok for the PRI charged. Reaching the hotel is not easy, roads towards the hotel is not good.

We stayed at Woodpecker resorts for two nights. We were met by a friendly staff. The check-in process was easy and they were able to make adjustments to our room requirements.

This is not at all a resort. No proper food. We ordered food and had to wait for 2 hours to reach us. We lost our hunger by that time. When asked, they said that there is some difficult situation in the kitchen. We noticed that there was only one server. I am sure that there would have been only...
