I guess if you're looking for a very simple place to stay, this may be a good choice. We traveled with two kids, ages 14 and 16, and they don't have rooms that accommodate four people. So we had to get 2 rooms. The bedding is old, no wifi to speak of except for in the main building. This was... More

This is such a charming and unique lodge, which makes it fun to stay there. First of all the buildings have thatched roofs. You walk into your building and there are approx. six rooms all on the same floor. The rooms are quite large with a back porch area with nice benches. We had a walk in shower and a... More

The thatched room lodges are round, and contain several spacious, uniquely-shaped rooms with private sitting areas outdoors. The infinity pool was nicely landscaped, and there were a couple of nature trails on the property. Buffet-style meals were varied and healthy, and served in an open-air room near a bird feeder. The only drawback was the spotty attentiveness of staff--we couldn't... More

The lodge and grounds are charming. Several large round out buldings contain the rooms. Both they and the main lodge area have round thatched roofs. The staff were extremely welcoming. the lodge seems to adhere to green practices. The bar overlooks a beautiful infinity pool tucked between tres. A variety of bird sounds add ro its ambiance. Food was plentiful... More

This lodge is in a lovely setting, we thought the grounds were well kept and the swimming pool is very attractive. The rooms are large, plenty of hot water and excellent showers and tea and coffee is available free of charge 24hrs a day in the reception area. The lodge is also ideally situated next to the Trimming Rainforest Reserve.... More

Very nice room clean but the hotel itself needs updating. Staff very slow had to find someone to get drinks from the bar every night we were there. Food not good buffet style dinner, no choice to eat in hotel as there is nothing in town. Gardens need cleaning and weeding. Good pool! Only wifi in the reception area and... More

A nice eco lodge, located very close to the Tirimbina Rainforest Biological Reserve. The rooms are located in buildings like thatched huts. The rooms are simple but spacious and comfortable. The rooms have showers only, and you should bring soap and shampoo from home. Breakfast and dinner are basic. there is also a botanical garden , archaeological remains and nice... More

Great lodge, with all the comfort you wish! may overpriced, but worth it. Botanical garden not good, messy. Really big rooms, great bed, nice little balcony. "Natur" pool is great - almost right into the rainforest...some stuff a bit moody and willing to speak english, but not with passion or effort. Wifi just in reception :(

Right in the middle of the rain forest and a biological preserve. You are surrounded by amazing flora and fauna and are likely to see a number of tropical birds and animals. This is no chain hotel. The rooms are 6-8 rooms per round, thatched-roofed building. They are plain but very comfortable and clean with the sounds of the forest... More

It was very disappointing that the museum was closed and that is not indicated on the website nor in any travelguide. Same for Archaeological Park 'Alma Ata' that was under reconstruction. The hotel was very basic. The service on the other hand was impecable, very nice lady that gaves us a splendid tour when we arrived and also very nice.... More
