We were fortunate to get a room with 2 beds and a bathroom with shower, toilet and washbasin. There were unfortunately no cupboards. Breakfast is basic , sharing long tables with fellow travelers. They need to upgrade on security as the gate to the property is open 24 hours with no access control. Some of the guests lost some property... More

Excellent accommodation, excellent food, very friendly and efficient staff. Fab atmosphere. Thoroughly recommended. Our student group also did the blackwater tubing, which they thoroughly enjoyed (despite the cold - not surprising at this time of year!).

Really nice place!! Try the 'bungee'-shooter at the bar after the real bungee jump! Nice and really big fireplace where you can hang around and have a drink with your friends. Rooms and tents and dorms, I checked everything out, haha! They are all great!!
