Travel planning on the fly has its advantages and disadvantages, and sometimes you have to take what you can get. We had a reservation in hand for this place, so when we got off the ferry in Moyogalpa in the late afternoon, we walked up the main street checking out the other handful of hotels. Most of them were full and none appeared any better or worse than the Landing, so we went back and checked in. I think we got about the last room available, a "suite". I call it that because it had four bunk beds, a kitchenette, and the bathroom. Plain and basic, no frills. No ceiling fan or AC either, but there was a plugin AC unit that, if the hamsters really got going, hit 78 degrees on the LED readout. It was about 12 inches away from the bed, so the moving air kept it bearable. One of our two nights there the power went out for about an hour, and it would have been a sweaty night of sleeplessness had it not kicked back on, as the humidity hangs thick in the air. The lobby area is a nice place to hang out, the front desk doubles as a bar, the staff is friendly, and the Wifi worked well in our room, always a plus in my book.
