2/10 Poor

Bug & critter infested with poor service!
We were very disappointed with this hotel. We were expecting a small, quiet luxury resort of 24 rooms as advertised. Instead, we found the resort grounds are shared by two resorts, the second resort (Amaya Lake) costs one third the price and has over 100 rooms with all the shared services. There is an ant infestation throughout the resort including in the room, on the balcony (rendering it unusable) and all over the chairs and tables in the pool area. We also had to constantly shoo away flies and aggressive chipmunks while we were dining. The staff were uncommunicative and unhelpful with issues around check-in and our request that the 4 extra beds lined up outside our room for the entirety of our stay be removed. The only saving grace to this resort were the friendly restaurant staff (best of all the bar manager!). This place is no where close to luxurious, don’t be fooled by the photos!

4/10 Fair

It was okay..Wouldn't go back for the same price..
Room smelled bad and the towel, bathrobe, bed, and pillow were kind of soggy and also smelled bad. It was just okay for the remote location. Also had to wake up to street dogs fighting eachother at 6 in the morning right outside my terrace.

2/10 Poor

Flies on your food
I would never recomend this hotel to anyone. Stayed here for 3 nights based on rated reviewers. Terrible food, flies landed on food trays but somehow hotel staff thought it was ok no issue, so gross i cant even eat. Room was dirty, moulds in bathroom, spiders, lizzards, crickets and mosquitoes. Spa was horrible, dirty, spider webs on all corner of bathroom, mosquitoes were on over the bathroom while i was soaking in bathtub. This hotel needs seriously training in hygiene.
