“Run away if you can”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

We saw a poor review of this hotel before we left and it was spot-on. Traveling with an EF Tour, we spent 2 nights here. Pretty on the outside - well kept gardens and neat topiaries. Our room was spacious but there is a lot of variation in the condition of the rooms. Our toilet was non-functioning when we arrived (they were quick to address it) and we had to switch out one cabin because of a terrible septic smell coming from the shower. Granted these are cabins, but they are poorly constructed - big gaps between door & windows and their frames. We had geckos in every room, leading to gecko poop everywhere, including on the beds. We also had 3 cabins with bats in them on the second night. The pool area is pretty but on close inspection, everything is very run down. The dining area was also pretty run down and the food was plain and not very much of it (for HS kids). This is clearly a struggling resort that EF is trying to help out, but putting kids up in accommodations this poor is just taking advantage of them.
