The cabins for 3 men are pretty small and the flip beds aren’t that comfy. The walls in the rooms are really thin for a newish platform. Carrying an H2S bum bag around is irritating too. Now the good parts – The food is really good, the gym is really good, the wifi is good and only 20 mins flight from the beach, facilities are decent including sauna and steam room.
