Nice location, excellent service and food is very good. Ongoing construction is real nuisance especially during the day. There should be a warning about during the booking process

Grossartig
Großartig! Jeden Abend gibt es eine Gratissonnenuntergangsbootsfahrt. Das Freiluftbadezimmer hat mir besonders gefallen. Nicht zu vergessen, der Infinitypool. Manchmal gab es kleinere Kommunikationsprobleme weil das Personal meist nur gebrochen Englisch spricht und ich kein Hindi kann.
