We loved our stay at Hickatee. We started out with an eve. walk on their good trail into the jungle, and then enjoyed a delicious meal on their veranda. The food was without exception excellent. One of us needed to be gluten-free, and Kate was wonderful in finding foods and even experimenting with gluten-free English pancakes, just for us! Everything was fresh and the spices and flavors were great. We stayed in cottage # 1 which was lovely-- beautiful wood floors, screened windows with louvered shutters for privacy but also to allow air flow. Nice big bathroom. The grounds are like a botanical garden with trees and plants labeled. The local staff is friendly, polite and capable. Kate and Ian were wonderful hosts, helpful to the Nth degree with planning outings, giving advice, and teaching us about the area. We also enjoyed getting to know the other guests-- an international crowd happened to be there, and it was fun to chat with them. We do wish we were still there!
