I paid a little bit more to stay at this hotel because it has a huge swimming pool. I haggled the room price down, so give it a try! The rooms are good sized and the queen sized bed had an excellent mattress. Modern flush toilets and unlimited hot water showers in the bathroom. Also satellite TV. They have a nice bar that serves snacks by the poolside. Upstairs they have a very good restaurant. I found the staff friendly and the pool was worth the extra I paid. It is a healthy walk to the lake, but when the weather is hot, you will want to get cool in the pool.

The rooms also have very good mosquito nets (pictured).

Unique Qualities:
* A huge and refreshing swimming pool with a bar on the side.
* 10 minute walk to the Lake and all town amenities

* Can organise tours, including by boat and even horse
* Airport pick-up
* Laundry
