We booked a 14 night stay for 5 rooms with 10 adults. Widani the front desk mgr also hooked us up with her brother who was a van driver when klook.com canceled our van after accepting our reservation and billed credit card.
We are realists, The hotel is only USD 18 per night with breakfast so we did not expect a Hilton. In saying that, we booked months ahead but started to panic with recent reviews posted on hotels.com. Several 4/10 back to back. Complaints were no hot water, a noisy temple nearby, and dirty rooms. To our surprise, the rooms were ok. The hot water required 3-5 mins to get to temp but was screaming hot at 70C. Add cold on the mixer for a great, strong pressure shower in all 8 rooms on all 3 floors in both left and right pool facing rooms.The rooms need a refresh with new paint and linens, but the sheets were clean. The beds were firm but comfortable. Air Con is a super quiet mini-split system with remote control. My guess is those who gave 4/10 reviews did not give it time to warm up and confused a room that is tired with one that is not clean.
Wifi sucked. Data on local sim worked well
The grounds were impeccable. The pool was clean and refreshing.
Great Sari burger and club delivered to the room. Breakfast was just adequate. No western food such as bacon, ham or sausages. Eggs were made to order. The hotel has some issues but overall, it's fantastic value, in a fantastic location. 8/10
