Thanks for the nice stay
Thought there may have been housekeeping at least once during our stay, but for 52.50 per night can't complain. Friendly staff including flooffy doggy, enjoyed the hammocks (not to mention having to get helped and heaved out of it) Just found that with 2 people it got a bit cramped in the private room after four nights, but if you're travelling alone, or there for a shorter stay would recommend.
