Tents did not look like photos on the web site.
•Getting to Tents: Climb approx. 49 wooden steps and another 45+ log stone steps. Then hike a dirt path with tree roots.Hiking to your tent several times daily in 92 degrees is exhausting. Tent: It was also much smaller than expected.The 4 tents are pretty close to one another. •Ventilation:There was no big fan above. Only a standing fan at the foot of your bed.
•Bathroom: The bathroom is totally outside/open air. Solar Water heaters were not added as stated. Showers are always cold. Composting toilets so big you needed a step to use it. Bath towels were changed on the 3rd day. Your 2 towels never really dry. •Outside Living Area: Very nice. Nice min-bar. A bottle of water was $4.00. Your bathroom tap water was safe to drink. There just something about getting tap water next to your composting toilet. •The rates between the tent and staying at the lodge are insignificant compare to what you get. The Island, lodge, food and staff are all 5 star. The tents just are not 5 star.
