Good 6.0
Needs improvement
The place needs a makeover. Bird poop and feathers everywhere. Smelly outside around the pool. Rooms need improvement / upgrade. Air-con needs to be remote controllable. Rooms are stuffy. The local area is very noisy, so you can’t leave the window open for fresh air at night or you will not be able to sleep, which means you can’t sleep anyway, because you have to get up to switch the air-con on and off for ventilation all night long. Food was good and well-presented though
