The cabins are clean, modern, spacious, and seem to lack nothing. They are beautiful! Oh wait! They do lack one thing, and that one thing is a very vital one for me: window screens! For the life of me, I have no idea why a cabin IN THE RAINFOREST has no screens! The first evening we were there, my mom got 3 mosquito bites IN the cabin. She gets big, itchy welts that last for days. We could not open windows because of it.
I had booked with an ocean-front resort so we could enjoy ocean air. The cabins are further away from the ocean - in the rainforest. So I was looking forward to sleeping with open windows to enjoy the fresh air, but under the circumstances could not. I got a fan, since the bedroom upstairs was very warm, which cooled the temperature, but was noisy and blew air too directly. Not what I had expected or been looking forward to. VERY disappointing. For $534/night, with a private hot tub and fireplace and everything else you need, you'd think they could have put in screens too!
The other difficulty we had was inconsistent and/or slow internet - including the lodge computers. I finally gave up completely on all computers.
Everything else was wonderful! Great place to stay if these things aren't issues for you!
My favorite thing - the chairs provided overlooking the beach.
