A very nice spacious room with a view in the jungle. The restaurant in this hotel is also good a shame that the service in the restaurant was not to the standard for this kind of hotel. But OK perhaps that they where short in employees during our stay.

The road in is narrow and needs some pot holes filled, there are also 3 high speed bumps so be careful if you have a low car. The receptionist made us wait more than 10 mins at checkin while she talked on the phone. The room was absolutely beautiful, large and comfortable. The view from the massive glass wall and...

The speed bumps are in place to protect our wildlife. My sincerest apologies that you experienced a 10 minute wait time on check in, whilst our receptionist was taking a phone call....

My partner took me here for two nights and i was blown away. The staff are all so lovely. The rooms are very private and have everything you need. We got wine and a cheese/meat platter on arrival. They deliver breakfast in a basket daily to your door.

Amazing location, excellent service. The room was exactly what we expected it to be. Very secluded and very well appointed. The service was friendly and extremely accommodating. The restaurant experience was superb. Would of loved to have curtains on the big windows though.

Amazing accommodation and service. Lovely to feel part of the rainforest. Peace and quiet or explore the Gallery Walk shops. We saw 24 hang gliders flying high above us before flying to their destination 80 Klms away over the mountains. It was a real traffic stopper.

Monday and Tuesday's most restaurants at tambourine are closed including the resort so prepare to have limited options. Second let down... tree houses are not as private as advertised... great if u want to see neighbors nude but that's not for everyone... curtains...
