My husband and I stayed in a 3 bed bungalow with our two toddler children. Was perfect size and the 2 children shared a bed. We had an enclosed veranda which was perfect at night time to sit and have a drink without the worry of mosquitos. The park in general is good with a great gift shop, 2 good pools and nice restaurant on the river. A downside to our stay here was the staff at check in. They could not find my reservation (even though I had booked and paid in my home country before arriving). They offered no help and told me I had to call the booking company to sort it out. They finally found me on their system and there was no apology. Found them quite rude. They could certainly do a course customer service.
The only other downside was that the only power point in the bungalow is for the fridge, which makes it quite hard to charge all the electronics after a day out driving and there is no electric kettle which means you have to boil water on the BBQ after buying all the equipment to start the thing. Makes it a long process to make a cup of tea.
