This is an amazing and beautiful place, but if you're going to stay here you need to know what you're getting yourself into. I suggest taking a look at their websit first - but it is an amazing and wonderful place and experience.
There will be a lot of hiking through mud, the possiblity that you might not see anything [it is the jungle after all] and when you get back to your room hot and sweaty - you'll only have a tepid shower.
There is only electricity from about 5pm to 10pm - but believe me, you won't miss it.
And the cool shower is a welcome relief from the jungle's heat and humidity.
The food was good - not amazing, but fine. Everyone was very friendly - and the hikes I did were amazing. From monkey island, to the lost lagoon, to the shamen's botanic gardens I have to say I thoroughally enjoyed my stay there.
The only criticism I would have is the pool - it was dirty and covered with insects and wasn't very appealing.
