We arrived at night time and had to reach our room via an elevated wooden walkway. It was dimly lit with citronella garden torches and the railing was missing in many parts ( some places had plastic tape strung between posts ) or leaning posts into the path, along with sloping edges, cracked planks, raised ridges and stumbling onto an unlit set of stairs with no reflective strips made for a fabulous trip hazard with bags and small child.
The room was quite nice and very spacious. No bath, though there is a spa on the patio which had about 40% small tiles missing with sharp grout exactly where you'd sit, so we didn't use it.
The pool was "broken" and a bus was offered to an adjoining establishment to use theirs if we wanted to.
The shuttle was also offered to go into town, but when we wanted to use this service, it turns out you have to book it in advance as it only goes hourly and there is only 11 seats. The hotel is a $30 cab fare away from town as we found out the 2nd night for dinner.
We had to go into town the2nd night as the hotel's in house restaurant is terrible. You get 1 of 3 menus to choose from and 1 of 3 entree and mains. My husband didn't like the potato leek soup and my salad was ok, but for mains we ordered steak asked for rare. Came out well done and so tough, we were unable to chew it. 2nd Attemp came out raw. Meat was ice cold to touch on the inside. They graciously did not charge us for the meat.
Breakfast was passable, but you need lots of time to find your own cutlery, glass for watered down juice, and wait for trays to be refilled at the waitress' leisure.
Despite the citronella lamps, the jungle setting make it impossible to curtail the mosquitoes. We had to spray repellent every time we left the room.
This hotel was picked by our tour agency as superior accommodation.
I would not recommend this hotel.
