My daughter and I had a great visit here last weekend. We decided the trick is to get there late morning before the crowds arrive and it gets too hot. We wandered along the nature paths and up to the summit virtually alone for most...More

There was a recent fire on the land so everything was burned and charred. The view from the top however was amazing.

The walk through the Nature Preserve was pleasant, although mostly uphill. We were able to see some monkeys and walk over several swinging bridges. The Butterfly Area was beautiful.

Good, safe place to stow the luggage and stretch the legs. We didn't see much wildlife other than a couple monkeys. The trails weren't terribly well marked. We didn't zipline. Hot and dry, though there's a small restaurant on site (as well as accommodations). The...More

This is a beautiful hotel and certainly the walk is exceptional. The hotel is not a big fan of children, so that was a bit of a concern for us when trying to have a cup of tea after the fact. The walk was nice,...More
