My partner and I stayed a night in the Double room.
First impressions of reception were kind of shocking. We arrived in the middle of another customer complaining to the reception staff about worms in the water at treetop!? Not the best start.
The decor was a bit repulsive with a small hand basin beside the bed, dark carpet and the bed coverings weren't reassuring in cleanliness as they were dark and patterened. I like my accommodation covers to either be plain and/or to be light in colour. It assures me that they are clean and relatively new.
Also, the walls are thin and there is a lot of movement around at night. So best to take your earplugs with you as we did.
As far as good points go, I would probably say that the best part of the Villa was the Bakery next door to it. Yum
For $65 a night and compared to backpackers lodges I've stayed at for the same price, this place is not value for money.
