We stayed for two nights at the Yala Peak. The room was clean and the showers were hot! The solar panels definitely work. Every day there was a team of cleaners cleaning the stairs and balconies. The staff were very pleasant and answered any questions to help you. As it is set back from the road, it is quiet at... More

We stayed here as a part of a tucan tour. The hotel is in a good location and staff were friendly. However we couldn't shower in our own room because the guy next door kept knocking saying it was causing sewage to go into his room. Just make sure your room is okay before settling. Water wasn't too hot even... More

There are several rooms types which are all well kept, neat and clean. There really is 24 hour hot water here and good... More
