We stayed in one of the very secluded cabins. They might all be secluded because we couldn't see any other cabins. It was surrounded by dense rainforest. The cabin was comfortable, clean but a little cramped. No wi-fi, TV, or telephone...a total getaway. It was a walk on a gravel track back to our car. The staff were really friendly. It was peaceful, isolated and relaxing.
Backpackers would find this place perfect. There was tea and coffee making facilities but little else in the way of food. However as we had a car it was easy to drive to the local pub for a beer and a meal.
I am pretty sure the Internet was available in the common area. The whole experience was different and good value for money.
