No airconditioning, no hot water, no television.
If you haven't wimped out by now, you just might be the kind of person who would have enjoy Loola. its definitely not your run-of-the-mill resort for the unimaginative, leisure and luxury-seeking tourist.
My wife and I had a great time here, testing ourselves and adding sailing a boat and archery to the list of things we're passably good at.The chalets are clean and comfortable with beautiful views (get the sea chalets), the food is no continental buffets, but is simple and wholesome and the staff at Loola are really friendly and helpful. They helped us set a schedule where we did a whole bunch of stuff (including kayaking and a lot of jumping off high places ) and still left us enough chill time to read and relax. What I really liked was that the staff were really conscious of safety, but they didn't treat me like I was going to do something stupid, like killing myself and ruining their equipment. Once they saw that we could handle it, they were perfectly comfortable with us going solo in the sailboat and kayak. Almost all the activities on their are complementary and you can go as many times as you want. The one's that aren't included in the price are easily affordable
This is a place we'd definitely recommend to like-minded people who think vacations should be spent trying new things and stretching boundaries. If you're soft in body and mind and absolutely need that hot shower, you're better off vegetating elsewhere.
