We stayed at Flying Monkey in the beginning of November 2013. Flying Monkey is a place of its own. The staff are really kind and funny... though, it seemed like the only person enployed who really knew what was going on was the Dutch guy in the reception. One of the receptionists came into our room on our first morning and told us we had to check out that day. We told her that we had booked 3 more nights and she just went "Aha, okay". The next morning two Swedish guys went to the reception and were told that it was their check-out day. They told the reception no, and when the receptionist looked another time it turned out they still had 2 more nights. The hygiene is non-existing - the house keeping girl barely opened our door and didn't even get the vacuum cleaner inside our room before closing the door again. And both the pool and the bath rooms didn't look properly cleaned... not to mention the kitchen facilities - they're absolutely horrible! But when all that's said, Flying Monkey is still a place I'd want to go back to because of the laid back atmosphere and the feeling of hakuna matata. Even though, it seemed like Little Stockholm when we stayed there - Swedish people everywhere! The voucher for Woolshed is a great offer and it's possible to get cheap tours!
