Ancient realm is a nice place, owners are truly lovely people who try hard, but a few problems we had spoiled our stay. Firstly we were there in the dry season but when it did rain our little bungalow became waterlogged. Water poured down the walls, inside! Each time it rained I had to move all our bags onto the bed as it was the only dry part of the room. I hung some clothing over the bed head to dry and when I went back to check it was wetter than when I started as water had come down the walls. Outside bathroom poses a problem during rain. Colour drains off the thatched roof straight into the toilet, so the whole toilet is brown and a pool forms a couple of inches deep. Cant wipe the seat with the toilet paper, as that has turned into a big ball of soppy tissue. And whats with the shells on the steps? They hurt! I know they look cute but they are sharp. It rained a few times during our stay so it was uncomfortable. Couldn't complain as owners were nowhere to be found. I know everyone is waxing lyrical about how great this place is and I don't want to sound like a spoilsport but normally I am pretty easily pleased. At over $100 a night I did expect to at least stay dry. If these few issues are ironed out I am sure I would come back again.
