    Met all our expectations. Secluded, sounds of the animals during the night and real feeling of being alone in a deep rainforest. Showering outside after a long walk was cool, literally! Food was also really well thought out and tasty.

    Paul was a little grumpy at times and acted like we were pests and not paying customers.

    The food for all meals was excellent and reasonably priced. A full kitchen was also offered for anyone who did not want to eat in the restaurant. Loved the outdoor bathroom in the rainforest. All requests were addressed eg yoga classes organised for next morning

    The totally peacefulness of the place

    Our driver picking us up was very helpful and friendly however the other staff (I would assume backpackers on working holidays) seemed disinterested and not helpful. We had to pre-order our dinner and one of our companions after the main meal was delivered had to ask where their pre-ordered soup was. It was just sitting on the bench. We were their only customers! It rained while we were there which made going to our outside toilet very wet especially as it rained on you whilst you were on the toilet! Maybe it was just the positioning of the hut. Not sure when our bed was made up as it had gecko poo over it when we arrived.

    Huts in the rainforest. Outdoor shower. Food in the restaurant wonderful. Hazel who gave me a lift down the car was lovely. Full warning about snakes and spiders after you have booked. Paul very helpful in changing my date it stay. Thank you.

    After walking up a 600m hike which I knew all about, you can ask for a lift I was greeted by a grumpy member of staff who didn’t even say hello. She just looked me up and down and said ‘take off your shoes’ I felt that was so rude. There is a tiny sign easy to miss. When I told the owner his response was ‘well you don’t have to stay here if you don’t want to’. I felt this was an awful first impression. I write for Trio Advisor and give great reviews when they are due but won’t lie when poor service is given. First impression are lasting impressions
