"Very good service. Nice resort. Nice rooms. Why did i give them 3 stars:
One thing I did not like was how they change prices on the safari tours etc. They gave me one price at the starting and then when I called them back, they raised the prices. Kinda shady in my opinion. For a high end resort like that, keep the prices consistent"
