The room is very hot, I could not stop sweating. You hardly feel any cool breeze from the air-condition.

Seemed like a friendly all inclusive environment in common areas. Bike hire would have been awesome if I was there during the day. Relaxed environment. Bed felt like bricks. Pillow was super nice though.
