Rooms where clean and spacious. Food was surprisingly ok. Staff are friendly.
Village tour was a walk through the town to the river. Was a nice short walk but overcrowded.
River ride was short (15minutes) but nice.
"Jungle"walk was a half hour walk around the outskirts of the park near the entry park ticket office and lasted again 15 maybe 20 minutes max.
Elephant bathing was terrible and involved bus loads of tourists standing around watching those who decided to get involved. The Maoists were hitting the elephants forcing them to spray water on the tourists sitting on top. Elephants were not having fun. It was uncomfortable to watch. if you want to participate no one in our group chose to) you are asked to pay a compulsory donation (this activity is not included in your package).
Elephant safari was really good. It lasted 2 and a half hours. Although the only fauna we found was a family of deer i really felt the elephant driver tried his best.
For accomodation I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this place. However I would suggest trying the local booking offices for activities.
