We had big expectations from this place and booked 3 nights well in advance. When we arrived the staff just stood in front of us and looked at us, we had to ask them which huts were booked for us, then had to ask them to bring the mattresses and arrange the beds.
The sink and the toilet in the outside bathroom were all green and dirty, we had to ask them to clean them. The light bulb in the bathroom was full of water, we also asked them to change it.........
From the moment we arrived, the cook was pressing us to order dinner, but nobody explained how the meals work there, what's the choice, what are the prices. As we were all sick that day we decided to skip dinner.
In the middle of the night we woke up in panic as a rat climbed into our bed and was walking over us. It took us more than an hour to chase him away. In the morning we just asked for a cup of tea and 2 chapatis and were charged the costs of a full breakfast. That was enough for us, we called a taxi and left the place.
My "Poor" rating is not for the quality of the accommodation, we were expecting simple and basic comfort, not for sharing our bed with a rat but for not getting the basic welcome and service one expects in such a place. The staff hardly speaks English and it is very hard to communicate with them.
The only positive experience we had there was the swimming pool.
