Everything about Meet Me There is incredible: the NGO that is linked to the lodge, the friendly staff, the beautiful location (set back from the beach on a lagoon), the food, the ethos, the rooms - and to top it off - the value. As a solo traveller I felt at home instantly, and even extended my stay to go to a local festival, which one of the team went out their way to take me to. The effort they take to integrate into the local community and economy is hugely important, but even if you don’t take that into account, it’s also just a brilliant run and relaxing place to stay. Would recommend to everyone from solo travellers to groups of friends, couples and families.
We stayed at Meet me there for two nights as part of a birdwatching tour. It's beautifully situated on a clean lagoon. You can swim in the water. The restaurant/ bar is built out over the water. Our room was small but perfectly adequate, attractively decorated and clean. It has a shower/ basin. There are super clean compost toilets a minutes walk away. The rooms are within a lovely garden of cacti and succulents. Food was good and service very attentive and friendly. Loved the true eco values of the place. Water dispensed in refillable glass bottles. A plastic free zone to the extent that you couldn't have a takeaway lunch cos they had nothing to put it in! If you filled a sack with rubbish from the nearby beach- and it wasn't terrible, just normal kind of small plastic you find on all beaches- you could earn a free cocktail! We went on a nocturnal turtle walk with a local guy who's working to protect the turtles. Watched an Olive Ridley turtle lay some eggs and safely return to the sea. Then we retrieved the eggs and safely buried them in the "hatchery ". Our stay there was one of the highlights of our holiday.…
Scenic views with a serene atmosphere. Simple building and design. It is right at the coast and good for those who want to get a relaxing experience. The road to the place is the only minus but it is totally worth it driving there.
We only stayed for one night at the end of a two week tour, but we wish we could have stayed longer. It was so relaxing! We were booked into 'Sea View' room, and this certainly looked to have the best location, at the end of the property with the water right in front :) The food was really great, and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly. We loved the fact that the lodge was eco (best composting toilets we have seen!) and the charitable connection - keep up the good work! Hope to visit again one day!
Our stay was a perfectly relaxing getaway. The lagoon was the ideal swimming hole and the sea breeze was revitalizing! The staff were great -- Elvis and Leon were welcoming and very helpful throughout our stay. The food and drinks were delicious and reasonably priced. Keeping in mind that this is an ecolodge, be sure to bring your own toiletries and beach towels. Also if you are staying in the seaview hut, be sure to bring earplugs in case the neighbour plays his radio loudly late at night. Also, be sure to bring enough cash to cover your stay plus food and drinks because the nearest ATM is an hour away. Otherwise, it is great knowing that your money is going towards a great cause in supporting their NGO and community projects.
