The service was tremendous, the meals were delicious, the surroundings were amazing, the guides were extremely knowledgeable and fun, but the rooms are small and stuffy. They put our family of four (two adults and two teens) into a small room with one double bed and one set of bunk beds. The room had one small window, that provided no breeze. This area is remote, so we were not expecting luxury, but we expected to get some sleep. It gets hot and muggy in this part of the country--even at night. Power is limited to a generator, so after the sun sets at 6:30 or so, lighting is very limited. Each room has a fan, but at 10:00 they shut off the generator, so the fan doesn't do much good. After the first night of misery--all four of us awake all night sweating in a hot and stuffy room, I asked if there were any other accommodations available--we would have been fine with a tent, but they could not offer us anything else. Another couple with a small child were doing everything they could to find different accommodations; they were not getting any sleep either. Even though everything else was wonderful, we couldn't wait to get out of there so we could get some rest. We stayed three nights, and that was plenty. The rooms are too small and stuffy. They need cross-ventilation.
