2/10 Poor

Never Again
The roads are hard to access parts are flooded, there’s a small river you have to cross. When we arrived we were told they do not offer 6beds as shown on their description- we ended up having to get a third room. The main room a scorpion inside when we arrived and later throughout the night ended up flooding. Very disappointed in the overall stay.

The access road to the property is horrible. We had a hard time getting taxis to make that trip because of that.

8/10 Very good

The facility is not too bad. Quite and pleasant. It’s just a bit too far from the city. Also, you have to cross a river and there is no bridge. If you take a taxi it may not take you all the way to the ranch if it rains or rained days before and the river water is too high. Not bad for the cost value per night of stay. Friendly staff.
