HOTEL - Yes, this place is tired and spread out and you may need to walk a distance to get from your room to reception or the restaurant, but it is within the building (and under cover).
The building was not modern and built in a Spanish-style with high ceilings and long dark corridors, Spanish-style chandeliers and stained timber entries to each room.
It looked like something out of a Zorro movie and I expected him to jump out at any time - haha!
The interior smell was musky and damp from the tropical weather.
CHECK-IN - It was late at night so there were no others around, but it certainly wasn't quick - had a few language difficulties, but it worked out okay in the end. They had our names listed in reverse (our Given name being our Surname) which didn't matter to us.
ROOM - Our room was antiquated but clean and adequate, however was in need of a good renovation. The shower was really slippery!
The TV was an older style, although we noticed other rooms had modern wall-mounted screens.
Sitting on the bed felt hard, however surprisingly enough we found it was comfortable to sleep on.
The rooms aren't soundproof and we heard people wheeling their luggage down the corridors during the night.
WI-FI - In the room, the charge was R18 for 24 hours.
RESTAURANTS - The buffet breakfast was satisfactory - lots of variety (but not many western food choices).
The restaurant was closed at dinner time the night we were there. The "Cafe" next door didn't open til 6pm and only had one customer there at 7pm.
We couldn't find anywhere to eat for lunch.
The Karu Grill (beside the pool) was excellent for dinner!
ACTIVITIES - They have a different schedule of activities for each day. We did the 10am tour of their "mini-zoo" which was quite interesting, especially seeing the jaguar, monkeys and squawking festive (laughing) parrots.
CHECKOUT - Allow at least 20 minutes for check-out as they (or should I say, their computers) are extremely slow. Their statements are laborious and quite difficult to interpret and understand.
There was a "shopping area" next to the hotel but not much choice (especially of food or drink).
The Lobby Bar was busy in the evenings or when people were waiting for their tours to arrive.
It was extremely handy to the boat pier where our Amazon boat trip departed from.
