Excellent teachers, well-equipped school, a wonderful pool and accommodation - ideal for learning.
There are problems with the cafe - poor choice, equal food. If you want to buy more - prices are twice as high as in the city. Sell beer - students will stay at school on evenings :) The room does not have a mosquito net - windows are closed, air conditioning is used. In the evenings, it is not possible to be on the balcony because the water pump motor is very noisy - this is the most annoying.
