Loved our time at the lodge.

Good Stay
Stayed in Chalet. It was wonderful, except the window screens had large rips in them that allowed flying bugs to get into the room when the windows were open. Lastly, for the same reason, the maids should probably close the entry door when they are servicing the room. But still enjoyed the view and the facilities.

Alert- floor in shower incredibly slippery and we all took partial falls. They need rubber mats. Other than that it was lovely. Take a walk down to the plantation and enjoy the excellent restaurant.

Pleasant one night stay
The staff was friendly and accommodating. We had some food items we wanted to keep fresh, and they found us a small refrigerator and a microwave for our room. The breakfast buffet was delicious and included in the price of our room. The room was spacious and clean. The shower was difficult to use without getting scalded. It went from hot to cold and was difficult to get just right.
