Negative Reviews

Rough road to resort

Guests are put-off by the difficult road leading up to the property. Since the resort is located on top of a mountain, the road is a bit dangerous and unfavourable. In addition, public transportation is not available in the area, so a private vehicle is needed to reach the property. Drivers should consider using a 4x4 to access this resort.
