8/10 Very good

Something to truly remember
This is a really unique place with a beautiful private beach. You get there and your first thought is wow this is so cool. Then after a while you think, wait this is kinda like camping. But then you come to the conclusion that camping is awesome and this place has so much to offer in its little package. The food is a little limited, especially with fruits and veggies. The room itself has enough space but needs more creative solutions for storage. Bedroom turnover is impractical but we would have appreciated more bathroom supplies. We really enjoyed the beach, less so the pool. Overall it was well worth it despite my nitpicking.

This hotel was just something very different and we loved it! We've told all our friends about it since we got back! There's not much space in the room admittedly, which completely suited us, but for some people this may be a struggle, particularly if you have lots of luggage or children. If you're travelling light and solo/couple, this place is lovely. There is a nice infinity pool. Breakfast was ok. It was nice being in the tranquil jungle. It is quite a long drive from the airport, but was relatively cheap to get there. Overall, a few good experience for a few days!
