This is a tipical tourist trap. We stayed in a tent for 3 nights- drawn by the chance to book online which is rare in this town on a low budget. My advice would be dont bother- the town is full of hotels so there is no need to book in advance if you are not travelling during peak season.
The hotel facilities are nice enough, the tents have a bit of novelty factor, but that wears off fast. THe music in the bar is loud and unavoidable until 11.30- which is fine- but not when you have 10 tents in earshot, meaning those in the tents have no option but to listen.
Furthermore the outdoor nature of the tents is not cleanly at all. They stand on slats which means anything can enter from the ground level- mice, ants, moths- anything.
The bar and resturant is overpriced and capitlizes on lazy 'backpackers' not finding local places to eat in town.
No kitchen to cook or breakfast included so overall this worked out as a real bank-breaker for no real benefit when in comparison to other places we stayed throughout the continent.
