We stayed at this lodge for 2 nights. We stayed in one of the overwater cabanas which is very roomy for 2 people, but found it a bit dark, especially at night. Only 2 lights one in the bathroon and one in the bedroom. There are solar lights out there, but they still don't illumnate things very well, so coming back to the cabin after supper ou had to be very careful. There is no hot water at all, I was very dissapointed, although I understand they don't have regular electricity there are other ways of getting hot water, at least in the morning for our showers.
The food is good, but would not say 'Great', and there was not much of it, we found ourselves hungry in late morning and late afternoon. Although we did mention that we found that we did not get enough to eat, they then came and asked if we wanted more to eat, we said yes, they came back and said there were only 2 portions left (we were 4 people), we said we woudl take the 2 portions, and to our amazement they server it to us COLD (it was soup).
The staff was very kind and helpful at all times.
I am giving this place an 'average' rating becasue it's high prices does not reflect the service we received. Food was good, enough for me as a woman, but certainly not enough for the men.
