Staff are nice and food is good, a... More

Stayed for 1 nights while travelling around. Makes a good base to look around siguriya and other sites. They were just finishing the pool when we left which would be great after a long day in the heat. The staff are great and meals excellent. Rooms are large but a bit dark. It's peaceful and quiet.

One night's stay in this resort set inside what was once a farm or an orchard was sufficient to make us fall in love with this place. Clean rooms and toilets. Good quality linen and nice furniture. The estate is a great place to watch birds. I found at least 20 different species right inside the campus. I have very... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Food is a good, staff is friendly, you have WiFi at the restaurant. The hotel is surrounded by trees and vegetation, on an alley away from the road, so it will be quite enough to rest very well. But: 1. once it gets dark, dark will be in the room also. Pour lights. 2. Shower... More

We spent 2 nights in this hotel. I don't know price for this hotel, as room was booked by our tour-guide. Rooms and restaurant should be cleaner. Food in restaurant is average, very average. If you will decide to book room in this hotel, please check first if everything works. Our shower was half broken. We found this problem after... More

If you are looking for The Hilton - this isn't for you. If you are looking for a hotel with friendly staff , good clean rooms in a jungle like setting at a great price - then this is the place for you! This hotel is in a very peaceful setting.

Large basic rooms with mosquito nets, large comfy double bed, good shower, strong water pressure and plenty of hot water. Ask for one of the first floor rooms if possible - the rooms have nice balconies so you can watch the monkeys in the trees. Quiet at night but a good place to relax. The restaurant has a good menu...
