We had a good time here, but some things could have been better. The room was nicely decorated and the hotel is very original and well designed, but the pool was a bit dirty and it was a shame that the restaurant was closed (but that's low season for you) as the location is a bit far from the main town.
This place does have amazing views and we saw lots of wildlife and sunsets, but also completely attacked by mosquitoes, I think mosquito nets on the windows would be good. Also the bathroom door didn't close.
Friendly and helpful staff, but a LOT of steps, this is not a good place to come if you are not very fit or handicapped, as you will not be able to go up for breakfast. I wouldn't go back to this hotel I don't think, but I can see why other people really liked it.
