We rented a room for $100 a night. Bad idea. The room was dirty. There was no air conditioning and temperatures were very high. The staff acted nervous, like they were afraid the manager was going to yell at them and also seemed to be worried that their customers were going to cheat them. Not only was the room dirty, the common areas were REALLY dirty. Management did not assign anyone to wipe tables, so when we arrived for breakfast, we found the tables splashed with milk, banana peels, and so forth. The bathrooms? Worse. Management seems so eager to make money that they admit anyone, including loud groups of drinkers who lounge in the pools, spoiling the quiet that we came for. In addition, there are signs IN ALL CAPITALS posted everywhere, ordering the guests to pitch in and help clean. Seems a bit much for $100 per night.
On the other hand, I had the best massage of my life there and it was a treat to do yoga next to the river each morning. I'll go back for the massage, but I won't stay at the lodge again.
