Breakfast is a buffet with plenty of choice. Diner starts at 18.30 wich is too late for us cause our son is tired by...

Perched on the hill top with a nice view, it's a comfortable and clean place. Although it's fairly big, it still feels cozy. The breakfast buffet is excellent with a large variety of choices. They also have a small swimming pool for a dip to cool yourself down. The staff are very friendly and quick to cater to your needs....

A nice old hotel, we had a british colonial feeling when we stayed there for three nights. A steep narrow road up to the hotel, but it was no problem for us. Nice views, and some monkeys outside the windows, which we thought was very cool. The pool was very nice. The rooms were also very good, but maybe the...
