    We loved staying in the forest with minimal barriers between our room and the morning bird calls. Very warm, helpful staff - a joy to be around.

  • 6.0.Good

    Amazing experience sleeping out with the sounds of the rainforest, but still having the protection of canvas walls, roof and mosquito nets. I would definitely not call this glamping and found my cabin a little overpriced for two basic, unmade single beds with not a hook or table to rest anything on. I would've been just as happy on a camp stretcher in a lightweight sleeping bag, which I would pay half the price for. The food was also a little overpriced for few options and how basic it is. But there are not alot of other places to eat so good to have something available - though it is also just for an hour or two twice a day.

    The kitchen cleanliness wasn't the best. Nor was the cleanliness of some tables. The place could do with some TLC. The setting was lovely.

    Had a great time. Food was awesome and the accommodations were great. Would be nice to have a bedside table for eye glasses, but other than that we loved our stay.
