The title pretty much says it all. It was very close to the rain forest, and not far at all from the orangutan rehab center (although 8 miles from the closest ATM, wish I knew they only take cash before I got there). Room were fairly clean, with A/C and warm water (I had to kill a fairly big spider in the bathroom, but no biggie). And the private porch on the back was fantastic!
The staff didn't come across a very friendly. They were not very welcoming, and thought they gave me clean towels and more soap after requesting it, they seemed to have a chip on their shoulder.
And then the food.... Awful! In fact it was so bad, we didn't bother eating dinner our third and final night there. We thought it would be better to load up on snacks, we got at the super market we had to go to for an ATM.... which again, was 8 miles away. There are not a lot of other options for food in the area.
Overall, the facilities and location trumped the so-so staff, and the awful food, but there are other B and B's in the area, which have the same location advantages, so I would recommend looking elsewhere in the area. Just my thoughts.
