My wife got ill on the way to the campsite and we knew that we needed to get her to a doctor as quick as possible. Our guide promised to help out by calling the available doctors to get an appointment, we wanted to follow our guide to get the information but was not allowed by the manager (Jacques).
He was more interested in selling optional activities, which it was obvious we wouldn't buy. He also completely disregarded me when I told him to take it easy with my wife and that I would make sure that both of us signed the waiver form. He just kept pushing my wife.
Later in the day i overheard the same manager talking to staff and question one guests mental sanity just because he had asked if the bar could turn down the music after 10 pm.
It's sad that one man can destroy the experience completely of what appeared to be a good and decent campsite.
