I do not know how anybody can speak well of this resort. The appearance is nice (as the rest of resorts around) but I pretended to have an extracharge to be billed in advance. The other few guests in the resort shared the same disgusting experience. At your risk if you dare to go !!!

The location and layout of the resort are great ... deep in the coastal rainforest. However, the rooms are very basic with no amentities to speak of. The food is good but lacks variety. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The best thing is hearing the Howler Monkeys early in the morning or in the late afternoon.

Great exotic jungle lodge. The tour guides are extremely nice and helpful. Everyone spoke perfect English, and the surroundings are enchanting. The only negative was a lack of airconditioning in your room. In the evening it stays pretty warm.
