The hotel makes the most of its position on a hilltop overlooking the falls and the comfort and quality of the cabanas are excellent. The breakfasts were good but I was disappointed with both the quality and cost of the evening meals that can best be summoned up as pretentious.If you want squiggles over your food then this is the place to go!! The reception staff were not trustworthy in that when we booked the Caracol trip we were assured that we would also visit the Rio Frio Caves en route. We questioned this as the taxi on the way had told us that the road there was impassable which turned out to be true. The receptionist also said that the cable car down to the bathing pools would be ready for use the following day. "Manana" The area surrounding the bathing pools had been badly damaged in the Autumn flood which was very unfortunate, but there did not seem any urgency to repair, and the pool surroundings could be generously described as untidy. The roads around the hotel after any rain are appalling and quite frankly the lodge's prime site is not worth the discomfort of getting there. In retrospect I would gladly have left it off my trip.
