Fabulous private location amongst the trees ! A little ‘tired’ but still perfectly comfortable and satisfactory. Great staff. Wonderful pool and gorgeous dinning area !

This property was in a fantastic location. The rooms themselves need maintenance. Our bed was very hard which did make sleeping difficult. The room was very clean though. Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant area is amazing and food is good as well. I would stay again if we had a different bed.The price is very reasonable. There is also not any cell phone coverage and you need to buy wifi.

Staff and service was very poor and not very accommodating. Pricey for what I would consider a 2 star resort

The resort is very tired. It needs some work done to it. The lighting inside the rooms is very dull and it's hard to read or do makeup or even play cards. Our sheets had holes in them and you had to walk a long way with your luggage to reach your cabin. They have tea and coffee and a kettle in the room but no microwave. The shower had no grout from waist height down or if it did all you saw was mould. The pillows also need replacing. There were curtains missing from a window so anyone walking past looked straight 8n and no screens on windows.. *this is in a rainforest) go figure! The room are spacious and very clean ( bar the shower) although 5he ladder to upstairs beds is very steep. The restaurant was nice and the food delicious. . For the price I would expect a lot more. Would not spend that much money on a place like that.
