Amazing and beautiful place. Staff were very helpful and nice. Food at the restaurant was delicious. Surrounded by nature, especially the monkeys, was really cool.

Wonderful experience, loved the birds and monkeys!
We really enjoyed our stay there. Room was large, basic but clean with a large bathroom. Watching the macaws, monkeys and other birds from restaurant patio was delightful. The only recommendation is to have better description of room's location. We were given an air-conditioned bungalow with a semi-outdoor bathroom. It was tiled, but one wall was tall bushes, rock foundation with shade cloth around bushes and no air conditioning. They were gracious when I explained that was not what I had booked, I expected an indoor bathroom. We were changed to a regular room. Room was large, basic, clean, with a large bathroom. All had good lighting. beds were comfortable, but pillows could be a bit better. Two parking areas so have to carry your bags to you room but on paved walkway. Not difficult to find, area around has very nice upscale homes, but road has potholes/ruts. There are restaurants close by on main road, but we didn't go out because of bumpy road. Pizza, large salad and banana split were very good in restaurant. Overall, it was a very good experience. Staff was great esp. in restaurant. Would recommend so long as you know what room you are booking if you don't want a bungalow with semi-outdoor bath.
