For being in a village down a seemingly endless dirt road, it's a cool little place. We stayed in the private room with bathroom. We are not wimpy and have stayed in worse places. But damn it was hot!The room just would not cool down even with the door open. Even with the fan full blast, it was arguably one of the worse nights of sleep I've ever had. Also, the bathroom seemed too stink... We just ended up keeping the door closed though. Overall, it was... an experience. Would I do it again? Probably not. Martina and staff were helpful and friendly. Can't take anything away from them.
