This is great little place to stay... I stayed in the red frog room which was really nice, its downstairs. It has no AC but a huge fan in the room which was fine by me. You get your own patio area that is plenty large enough for a couple. A Hammock of your own. There are also hammock down by the beech for chilling out.
The place has only about 14 rooms so its nice and intimate there.
The staff are all really friendly and there is a very nice atmosphere around the place.
The beech is right in front of you and the jungle right behind you. You can hear howler monkeys from the room, and see banana trees from the toilet (which has no windows)
the town is about a 20 minute walk, they rent push bikes which is the best bet during the day, a cab in the evening can be arranged and thats only about 4 dollars each way.
the hotel can organize a whole bunch of stuff for you if you havent booked any adventures as well..
