The room: basic. Two beds. Bathroom: simple. One downside to the shower: you are sharing solar-heated water with three other rooms... rise early to ensure a hot shower before other guests sharing the same system. I figured this out on day one, and set the alarm early for days 2, 3, and 4.
The bar and restaurant area are pleasant. The daily breakfast...excellent. I'd recommend the full meal plan. We didn't have a sub-par meal during the entire stay.
Take advantage of the nature hikes/paths surrounding the lodge.
And bring more clothes than you think necessary (particularly socks and underwear)--it is so humid that NOTHING dries. Damp sheets. Damp towels. You get used to it...it's the middle of the rain forest.
