Jungle Jeanie's is a great place to stay for the "in-between" traveler. Not a hostel, not a high end resort. My boyfriend and I stayed for 6 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. Without pre-ordering, as we were told to do, we recieved lobster delivered to our "treehouse" just after arriving from the airport on our first night. We were VERY happy campers!
We've read a lot of negative reviews about their dogs. Yes, they do have 4 german sheperds. Yes, they are big, Yes, they sometimes bark. And because of the dogs, we NEVER worried about the safety of our belongings! All 4 of the dogs love to swim and are very friendly. We found them a bonus to our experience.
A few of the negatives - our bed was not very comfy, which we informed Jeanie of, and are certain that she fixed for future guests. And, no fault of Jeanie or staff at all, when there is no breeze, the sand flies can be VERY annoying! A night of slapping at those biting little #$%^$# ers and you'll be extremely happy with the wind blowing through your hair!
It's only a short walk into town, and we felt very safe walking around at night. The town of Hopkins is welcoming and quite safe for the tourist.
Thanks Jeanie and staff (Barbara was great too!)
