The property was very nice. Had amazing views. There was so much to do there, but we were very disappointed by the rooms. I know we are in the rain forest, but the amount of bug bites and bugs in the room was disgusting. There were tons of spiders in the room and we found a roach in the bathroom behind the toilet (which really flipped me out). Actually had to sleep with a mosquito net on because of all the bugs and found another roach crawling across the shelf in the bedroom in the middle of the night. If I wasn't on a school trip, I would have left the first night. The beds were not comfortable at all and there were some stains on the sheets. We went zip lining on the property which was a ton of fun and the restaurant was really good. We went to a little surfer town 10 mins away which was also cool with some survivor shops and restaurants/bars. The lodge had a very nice gift shop that had very reasonable prices. There was also a pool on property which was nice. If it wasn't for all the bugs and if the rooms were a bit more updated, I would have given a better rating. But we did see a ton of wildlife. We saw sloths, monkeys, and much more. The beach (pacific ocean) was about a 10 minute walk from the lodge.
