This place, in so many aspects, is a monument to everything you can fail in as an architect and building engineer. In our room, between window frame and wall was a gap so huge that you could easily look through. The bathrooms are unnecessarily tiny, the shower curtains don't reach the ground. The beds are uncomfortable and small and the... More

First of all I am late with a review again, as we stayed end of November 2013, but I really enjoyed it so to make it fair I would defiantly make sure to give my good feedback. If I was going to rate it as a hotel and the experience of staying there it wouldn't rate very high. We weren't... More

This was a great place to stay to see the turtles. The tours were at 8.30pm and 5am so it was a big bonus to be onsite, and the tours were included in the room rate. We stayed in the eco tents which are a 10 min uphill walk (or very short drive if you have a 4WD) from the... More

the highlight was without doubt the turtles. We saw both the night and dawn shows. While it was well organised one guide could have better English coaching. The establishment is rather odd resembling a fortress with very few windows. The rooms open onto an atrium which is open to all the crowds coming to visit the turtles from both within... More

Everyone who goes there is because of the turtles, and it really worth it. But excluding these the hotel is not a great thing, is not well cleaned and the food is not good. The restaurant at night is only buffet and it doesn't have international food. It is overpriced but if you want to see the turtles there is... More

The main reason for this reserve-with-facilities to be there are the turtles coming on the beach the whole year round. Without the restaurant and hotel accommodation one would have to drive almost 45 minutes to find a place to eat and sleep after the turtle watching in the beginning of the night and another 45 minutes to get there before...

Its expensive - overpriced, even; but it was worth the one night we stayed. And if you have kids and like to camp, and have the money... and ... well, I would do it. But, I wouldn't necessarily do it just for the tours - they were not as great as we hoped. We'll review that on the scientific center... More
