Our journey to the hotel wasn't idea as tuk-tuks really struggle to get up the hill and then have to drop you at the end of the drive as it is too steep for them to go down (and get back up again) so make sure you opt for a taxi.
We were greeted very warmly on arrival and taken to our room. It was late (approx 8.30pm) and very dark. The room was a good size, and the bathroom very basic. The first thing that we spotted was an ENORMOUS spider just by the bed. This is to be expected in a room in a jungle surrounding, but still took us by surprise! The bathroom appeared clean but there was a rather large black hair stuck in the soap which then made you question how clean everything else actually was.
We seemed to be the only people at the hotel and were the only ones at dinner. There was a large pizza menu, but after ordering we were told that the pizza oven was broken! The food was pretty average and the main courses were served before the starters! It was all slightly chaotic, but the staff were very nice and friendly. I would however agree with the comment about feeling watched.
On departure, the driver took us to the port to catch a boat to an island, but the driver took us to the wrong pier which meant that we were late for our crossing, but thankfully they waited for us otherwise we would have been in big trouble.
