We arrived at the camp at 4:30 PM and was greeted by the manager. There was little to no communication since he did not speak very much English. He showed us to our tent that appeared to by clean. When we asked for towels we were told that they were extra. We found out that there electricity would only be available from 6:30PM to 9:30PM which meant that we could not charge our phones. Anyway, no cell service was available.
The evening meal, which consisted of chicken and rice, was served in the main tent was good. We sat around the main tent to keep warm by the fire until the lights went out. Fortunately, we had flashlights that enabled us to find our way back to our tent and to get ready for bed because there was no light.
The toilets and showers were a short walk from the tent. The problem was that you needed to have a flashlight to us the facilities because there was no light in the stalls and when you closed the door for privacy it was pitch black. This was true during daylight hours too.
The night became very cold making trips to the toilet difficult and sleeping, even with all of the blankets provided. difficult. Morning breakfast was served in the main tent under one gas powered light. Even though it was daylight, you could hardly see.
Obviously, the rating is based on our expectations versus what we received. If you enjoy camping and bring the appropriate equipment your experience will be better. As for us, we should have spent the night in the hotel.
