    Staff was super nice. It is in a remote area but that is what we liked. Could hear the howler monkeys and the birds every morning. Just nice and peaceful. The wifi has been updated and is super good, especially in common areas.

    This was a lovely, tropical oasis in a dry, dusty environment. The food in the restaurant took quite a long time to prepare but it was very good.
  • Joanne

    We enjoyed the laid back quiet atmosphere. It was also nice to have a restaurant on site. The food was very good and the staff was friendly and made us feel at home.
