9.2.Superb.
  • Le lieu en pleine jungle est superbe et totalement dépaysant, loin des bruits de la route…

  • Definitely a place to go and relax, with no TV, and wifi pretty poor. But not the place…

    Pleasant stay, close to beach

    Great service, right across from a beautiful beach. Delicious, filling breakfast. Excellent location if you are looking for a more relaxing location away from town. Easy 5 minute taxi to town though! The cabins are open so you can hear monkeys and rain! Only downside is that means you are also open to mosquitos and ants.

    Excellent location for wildlife- sloths, howler and capuchin monkeys, iguanas, and many types of birds but to name a few were seen right outside our bungalow. Still, it was only a short walk to the beach and an assortment of other restaurants.

    Marvellous lodge nestled in beautiful tropical gardens. The lodge and rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Our hosts were on hand to answer any questions and they served a wonderful breakfast too!

    Very good stay. Jungle surrounding is fantastic

    Very good 4 nights stay. The jungle surrounding is fanatics and you see lots of animals from your front porch. It really is just few minute walk to the beach also. Owners are helpful and the breakfast was tasty. The only downside was there was no facility to make yourself something hot to drink and when asked for coffee I was told there’s none anymore.

    Wundervoll, aber in die Jahre gekommen. Insgesamt empfehlenswert. Nicht für Publikum mit Luxuswunsch.
