I went there hoping to have a great start of 2019 but was disappointed with their services. I'll just put it in points. 1. Run down facilities. Poorly maintained. Saving grace = good shower heater. 2. Mosquitoes and sandflies everywhere. 3. On the night of my stay, a power

We were so excited for this part of our journey, staying in a treehouse in the rainforest, activities, beach! However, there were pros and cons: Pros- you can’t fault the scenery and a treehouse is a really unique experience. We saw squirrels, snakes (a safe distance away!),

We stayed here for 3 nights over the Xmas period. We went with some trepidation after reading the bad reviews on here- but we had a fantastic time. This is an eco lodge and NOT a 5 star hotel, so expectations should reflect that. The resort is in a stunning location, within

Love the window
I believe so, but I didn't check the GPS to pinpoint exactly where we were. Yes the transport will pick you up at the hotel. The trip is organised by the hotel itself ... I believe min. 2 guests to run.

There are plenty of things to do. There are 2 beaches, a pool filled by stream water, multiple streams to play in especially for kids and the walking tracks can be self guided. there are also kayaks and paddleboards for rent.

We stayed 2 nights at a Tree House and did not experience any mosquitoes. There is however nets on the windows anyway. The staff advise you to keep windows closed anyway because of curious monkeys. Definitely need strong footwear if you plan to hike. Around the cabins is fine but the trails are muddy and rough. The ants do bite so would not recommend sandals
