The hotel is lovely but is not clear about what it offers; Cable tv means a cable attached to the t.v; most stations are in Spanish (only 2 English stations); Wi fi is only in the lobby and pool area, which is far from the rooms, and you have to lug your laptop into the rain to use it;
It is a rain forest, so it rains a lot which is fine up the bedding smelt of mold so that was not pleasant; Also the beds were very hard and not easy to sleep on!!!
There was also some man taking inappropriate pictures of some young women in the pool area which made me feel quite uncomfortable; I reported to staff but the man who asked him to stop seemed to enjoy the show (as a woman I found their poses were gross!! and I did not like having to watch this from the hot tub)
