Outdoor showers at BLBR

Hi all

Sorry for the silly question!

I love the look of the BLBR, but not sure about the outdoor showers.

I'm not good with bugs etc, and wondered do you ever get problems with bugs/ lizards when showering in the outdoor shower?

The outdoor showers are gorgeous! Even in the rain it was so nice showering outdoors (and the kids thought it was the best thing ever). However there are some bugs, mainly moths at night when the light was on and small lizards, the lizards were on the walls though and didn't come near us. While at Octopus resort ( similar set up) we also had a crab in our shower.

None of these things were a bother to us but coming from Australia we are probably more used to creepy crawlies. So if you are not happy having a few small friends sharing the bathroom with you then perhaps choose another accommodation option :) The toilets are in the outdoor bathroom too so going outside at night was when the most bugs were about.

BLBR is fantastic, enjoy!

Not a problem. There is the odd bug (very few) but they are more scared of you and will go away quickly. The walls are plastered and very clean, without places for bugs to hide, so don't worry! The little geckos are charming '(and do a good job of eating any insects bold enough to come close) - and they will run and hide at the first sight of you.

Great during the summer months but can get a bit chilly in the cooler ones especially of an evening. I think they look great and are a novelty but still prefer indoor would be nice if they offered both..
