If you are looking for the heart of luxury then you are at the wrong place. What you will find at the rainforest resort is a well appointed cabin beautifully secluded in a natural woodland setting.
The bed was comfortable and the hot water was high pressure and ample. The kitchenette had enough to whip up a small meal if you didn't feel like going out and the cabin is large and open with both ceiling fans and air conditioning. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the enclosed veranda to enjoy the sounds of nature (or the rather spectacular thunderstorm one night) whilst protected from most of the local insect life. The resort also supplies mozzie coils in case the bugs are being particularly aggressive.
The main complaint - which others have also made - is that not all the windows have shutters or blinds. Our kitchen window in particular has a straight-line view into the balcony area of a nearby cabin which was rectified by hanging a shirt over it.
The staff was unobtrusive but friendly when you needed them and having open access to spare linen and towels was a welcome touch when nothing dried after the stormy soaking we got.
Though we didn't travel with pets or kids this time, we appreciated the pool and games room as well as the pet-friendly nature of the property as an encouragement to return with the whole family.
Overall, this property contributed well to a wonderful getaway.
