Rain Forest Retreat is basic style accommodation. Not bad, pretty decent, great location but not brilliant. Just little things in terms of ageing mattresses, basic linen and cheaper cuts of meat in the food.
Point of note: Because the various budget/younger tour companies often stop here, with the bar party central, its probably not the most family friendly venue. A few people in various state of dress, some wild drinking and the ever familiar stagger through the car park are ever present.
Still its a great location, looks funky from the outside, very nice staff and a decent price still makes me recommend it. Just needs to improve slightly on the bedding.
