Stayed there with our 16 and 17 year old sons. The rooms were sterile, poor sound baffling, one of the toilets smelled bad, uncomfortable beds, dark lighting. The pool is not heated. They heat the jacuzzi when asked, saying it would only take 30 minutes. After 1 hour it still was not 100F. We waited some more, just as we were getting ready, another family went in. Since it is a small jacuzzi we didn't feel comfortable squeezing in.... And by the time they got out it was dark. We went on the hike with the very nice guide Miguel (!) and saw 2 frogs and tarantula legs in their caves. The bar man made a nice Piña Colada. People were friendly.
