2/5

  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

It more suitable for couple or youngsters, as it was not kids friendly, as the safety for kids is low. My youngest son fall from pool while sitting on the side and high on floor full of sharp stones, luckily no needle need for the wound. As for the breakfast, it was expensive for my kid as I pay my 5 years old boy breakfast and not much choices to take. It's a place not suitable for family with kids, but might be good for couples.
