Smell of mildew
There is a problem with the hotel. Since there are no windows, the rooms are not ventilated in any way other than air conditioning. The result is that there is a foul smell of mildew in everyone.

Enjoyed my stay
The food and beverages were amazing and the property meets all the required cleanliness. Staffs and services were great and taking extra care of the guests. But the room entertainment has to upgrade at least to place a smart tv or changing their systems.
