    Nothing - terrible experience

    On arrival check in was bad with a very grumpy manager. We arrived as a two family party with two bookings and his first comment was; you have too many people you need more rooms which is more money! He then (after checking us in) announced there was no Chef, no menu, no lunch and maybe dinner! This place is about 3km down a lonely lane so no option of finding food anywhere else. Really poor attitude. We hired the resort Jeep for safari which broke down mid safari and went on fire, driver had no idea what to do for safety. Cost $200 dollars promised refund never came. This was worst hotel stay ever. I can only try to warn future visitors. Pictures available and video of food issues. Such a shame as resort has lots of potential but needs whole new staff and a proper team to run the kitchen, no spa and gym was non existent. Faulty towers is alive and well!

    the room was comfy and clean, so was the pool. The garden is nice.

    Common spaces need a serious cleaning. And the poaching images in the dining were not our favourite

    Good location close to the safari, nice pool, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful room.

    Buffet food was ok, not amazing. There was some mold on the roof of the room.

    Pradeep, our waiter (pretty much the one and only waiter). He was kind, courteous, and attentive with a great sense of humour. He was the highlight of our stay!

    Leaking shower room. The floor was wet when we arrived. The mat in the bathroom was stained and wet. The bedroom door warped overnight so we were locked into the room in the morning as the security bolt would not undo and nearly missed our safari. On phoning reception it took half an hour before we were passed a screw driver to let our selves out. No concession offered on our room bill when we requested a discount. Seriously disappointed.

    Facilities. Large rooms, park like setting, lovely pool and common areas (turtle pool, restaurant, bar), good WiFi.

    Restaurant food could be a touch better to be more in keeping with the vibe of the whole establishment. Hot water wasn't always available for a shower - supply seemed scarce
