"probably a distance from the pool would be quieter,"
"Get one of the guest houses a bit more away from the main house, but be aware to have some light for the night - animals ;-)"
"The rooms are very simple but clean. The true essence of the hotel is the location, keep that in mind."
"All the rooms are in a gated, garden-type environment."
"They put people in rooms right next to each other. Since there are plenty of rooms you may want to ask to be spaced out some. We could here a loud snorer next door."
