Our room had a loft with double bed and a queen bed on ground floor. Rooms are basic but comfortable. No a/c but fans were sufficient during our stay. Service at reception was friendly. You will need help with luggage as some rooms are fair distance from reception but the staff will assist. There is a pool but we did not use it.
The hotel is second last stop for shuttles if you are planning to do zip lining and the ride is torture due to bad road. Food was OK for our liking at the hotel. We walked to Tromonti for fantastic Pizza. It is a mile away on dirt road and uphill coming back. There is a grocery store and bakery along the way.
Night tour of Ficus trail was a bit disappointing but the guide was good. Salvatura park was excellent place for zip lining, humming birds, butterflies and reptile exhibits. They provided a shuttle. Coffee tour was educational and fun for family as a late afternoon activity.
