We were very anxious what to find after reading these reviews, but pleasantly surprised after our visit. New heating system for the shower was installed, repairs were made. Tremendous view from the cabin and restaurant (valley and city). Big and private cabin which was clean (but could use a spring clean). The entire complex could do with a renovation (dont expect western luxury in Laos). Good breakfast (fresh fruit, juice, egg and bread). You can have dinner (they ask you when you arrive) or just arrange a lift into town. Staff is very friendly and helpfull.
