    Not sure if I will go back
    First room I was in- DSTV was not working. Then moved to another room and sliding door was not working. I had to call more than 3 times for housekeeping to come clean the room this is after one of the cleaning ladies came to the room and promised to come back. I ordered a chicken burger and the chicken was half cooked. . That busines is soon going to collapse if you don’t don’t improve and do something about your staff. Balcony was dirty, room cleaning staff don’t move furniture around when cleaning. This is not my first time staying there and within a year your building is detoriating. . Pity the views are so great.
