The hotel is situated on water. Each room is just a small house sitting on water. Houses, the reception and the dining areas are connected by the wooden boardwalks and hanging bridges, and when it rains, they get wet and become slippery. The houses are quite small and there are ants all over the place inside. The showers are quite difficult to manage as you can't set the temperature right away - either it will be very hot or very cold. The food at the hotel is quite mediocre, and the service is very slow. Avoid meat dishes since the meat is not of a good quality and you will spend time chewing it, but the fish snook is very good. The salsa sauce served at the table is good, but make sure you get the green and not the brown one. Pretty much you will feel like Shrek in the swamp staying at this hotel. Since the hotel is on water, it has lots of blood sucking insects so be prepared, and also bring a flashlight with you because there are no lights above the bridges/boardwalks and you don't want to fall off of them at night.
