For my birthday, I wanted to have a stress-free, hammoc, out-of-reach cellular signal to relax and I got it. The service is on point, answering all my questions and offering options, making the menu a flexible one. They even have a vegetarian menu. The rooms are like typical wooden houses. The landscape has a variety of plants identified. My room had just one ceiling fan (no air condition, cord phone) and a charming balcony with seats and hammoc. The pool was ok. The other guests enhanced the experience by singing me "Happy Birthday" with cake and paying what I ordered.
My low remarks goes to the price, since is an eco-friendly hotel, the management does not have high expenses (no air condition, no window curtains, clocks, outside lights are turn off after certain hours, very few room lights). They can reduce the hotel fare. Even if the hotel has mountains around, I could still hear trucks passing by.
