Stayed here for just two nights and really enjoyed it. But honestly, I can't give a place that is only half built five stars or even four. What do I give it when it's finished?
The hotel looks like a construction zone. One side of the hotel is still just a shell with bags of cement lying around and holes where doors and windows should be. The rooms are nice enough, the beds are a bit hard but the common areas are unfinished with uneven concrete floors, no railing on the stairs etc. And to expose myself as a total snob, the walls are covered with graffiti from past guests saying how much they love Ecofarm. I know this is common practice is dingy backpacker hangouts, but I reckon a guest book does the job and is less ugly.
But there are plenty of good things about this place. Eco the manager, is friendly, helpful and very switched on - great for a chat over a cup of tea. The location is amazing, away from Yangshuo town and surrounded by the famous mountains and walking distance to the river. The food is very nice, made by Eco's family using produce grown right outside Ecofarm's front door.
