Stayed in one of the villas. Beautiful rooms and bathrooms. Kitchen could have been a bit better equipped eg no frying pan, shortage of utensils. Supposed to be milk in the fridge but was none. Fabulous views from villa. Great walks in the area and great birds. Shocking amount of invasive vegetation in the area eg. wild tobacco (bug tree), lantana, especially near zip line. Very little seems to have been done to eradicate this scourge.
Went on bird walk in the morning - guide was knowledgeable but not very accommodating with the group. Felt she got irritated with questions from the group and that they did not keep up with her rapid pointing out of the birds. Also felt the staff in general were unfriendly. It was a very special visit for us - seeing family who live very far away so unfriendly staff just spoils it!
