    The Location, View of the Property is Great overseeing the Lake.. Location is Big and has activities for the guests.. Food is Average.. Service Levels needs to be Improved.. Basic things from the Rooms were missing and were not cleaned when we checked in..

    Response from brahmagadipudi | Reviewed this property |
    Yes, the private pool has walls all around. However the pool is not so clean and not maintained well. Partly it is because of surrounding trees, there are lot of leaves etc in the pool.
