We are from Trinidad and the view is breath taking. The green with splashes of colour all around, fantastic landscaping. We enjoyed the ambiance, the cabin facing at the pond and listening to the birds sing and watching the humming birds, we even saw a woodpecker.
The Cabin is very comfortable with full kitchen equipment, wifi, direct tv and a safe to lock your valuables away. My two girls ages 7 and 9 had a great time in the canoe, they had life jackets for everyone. They gave us three bamboo fishing rods, we just had to provide our own bait. Under the cabin there is a hammock, barbecue pit, chairs, tables and a sink.
The pool was a bit small but we had fun. The pool area has a microwave, barbecue pit, a kitchen with plates, cups, utensils, a chiller to put your drinks, tables and chairs. Also a shower at the back and a toilet. Oh! we got news papers every morning, I was not expecting that and they cut coconut for us as well. The owners are supper nice and they are always checking up on you to make sure you are comfortable.
The only thing I observed was they had no iron, hair dryer, shampoo and conditioner, body cream and packaged body soap in the cabin like a Hotel would.
