This is a quite big lodge, a bit too big for our taste, we like the smaller ones better. But the standard of the cottages is great and the service is OK+. The pool area is nice. The food (buffet style) was really good, there was something for everyone. They also have a spa but we never used it.
However, small things made us give it only a "4" rating. You are not allowed to bring water to the restaurant. In a country where it is important to drink a lot of water and where you always have at least one bottle in your backpack, I don't understand why you shouldn't be allowed to open that bottle and drink it together with your meals, most people buy sodas, beer or wine anyway.
And then the wifi - the lodge has one login (username + password) for all guests, which means that in the evening when everyone is using it, some people get the message "The maximum number of concurrent users for this account has been reached". And why have a login at all? It's not like there's another lodge nearby and their guests can use this wifi without paying… http://www.flickr.com/photos/videren/9036484654/
