    Nice hotel design, worst breakfast”

    Staying 3D2N, staff are very polite and friendly. Room is nice and design is OK. However, so called buffet breakfast is worst experience ever. Only has 2 type of meal for breakfast and not enough protein, just a carbo based (rice and pasta). Not to forget, our first breakfast is replaced with a plain scrambled egg since they have a technical problem. They just need to improve their management and more meal for so called buffet breakfast

    Overall stay was good. Breakfast was served to each room. You can choose between two type of meal. Love the swimmingpool, water was clean and refreshing.Abit dissapointed with hot shower, it is low and not hot at all. I believed they are using central system, in which once the hot water resorvoir run out, the water become slow and cold. Might want to improve on that.
