We turned up to the village and there seems to be lots of accommodation but it was getting quite busy. There are a few different types of accommodation here but they only had the 'motel' available. The staff were very open to letting us see the room first, it was clean with a kitchenette (milk, tea and coffee provided) and a shower in the bathroom. There is a great bar on site 'Monsoon' and they serve really good food and beers. This is great having the bar on site especially when it is raining hard (which can be quite often!). The price was good and the parking is v good. They will also book activities for you. A great village with some good bars and restaurants.
