Will not write home about it
Location is fine, since you can get an uber anywhere. The guest house was basic, nothing spactcular about the location or staff. Stayed in the presidential suite nice large room, but like the rest of the property everything is completely dated. I felt like I was in 1984😞😞 for the price I expect a better experience. Breakfast was good and the staff was vary accomendating regarding my food choices
