    i would like to tell a few words to Mr Nasser who came in the lodge very quickly while we were there: 1- do you know that if you want to have clean ans unsmelling eco toilets you should separate urine and sheet 2- when you wetre there the whale was already smelling so badly that we change room, buried ourselves the whale body but the pieces of the whale were still al over the place , you did look like taking care of it 3- fortunately you have Ali trying to do as much as he can 4- the price is absolutely too high for what you offer ; bad food, smells , service, almost no lights in the rooms, water so little you cannot wash your hair or your teeth, plus this few water is dark brown well i am traveling a lot especially in these kind of places and i was very disappointed and i can see i am not alone in this case but you did not put any answer on my review ( nov 2014)
