We stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed the place.
The owners were leaving so we just briefly met them, however the manager is very nice too and we had interesting conversations with her. We learnt a lot about organic culture (in which we have interest), several good Indian magazines are also available for reading.
Food was excellent, every day.
Don't go there for luxury or if you can't live without Internet/mobile phones, it's really a place for nature lovers and people who enjoy walking and observing plants. Madileri town is about 12 km on a bumpy road (almost a 30 min-ride..) so it's better to stay immersed at the Rainforest once you get there !
The room (deluxe cottage) was a bit moldy since it was right after moosoon and heavy rain days, but nice and spacious, with a great bathroom and outside sitting-out area.
