Food in the barbeque was v. good. The balcony of room that oversaw the mango tree courtyard was excellent. Mid night help to get medicines was appreciated.

First the room was v. small for a triple occupancy we could not even walk after the third bed was put. Quality of water supply (heating and mixing) in bathroom was below a 4 star level. They also forgot to put 3 towels for a triple occupancy room. And the restaurant booking was in a mess. We had to wait 45 minutes. But the wait was worth it.
