The location surrounded by rainforest is excellent with lots of birds around. Staff were pleasant. I stayed here years ago when it had been recently built and it was gorgeous. However it's a bit run down now. The airconditioner was on a 2 hour time limit but there was no point even turning it on as it barely worked and the little bit of air coming out was warm. We tried to open some windows instead and a couple nearly fell out of their frames so we couldn't open and close regularly. The room was so hot (even overnight when ambient temperature cooled down a bit and even with the fan going all night on the highest (noisy) speed) that it was really uncomfortable. Also the advertised free WiFi was not available. We were told this was because "the phone lines are down" but we asked other businesses in the area and they said that wasn't the case. We asked for help with the aircon on the first night but the staff member on duty didn't know how to use it. We also mentioned these problems to the manager when we were leaving and she said she thought the windows had been fixed and didn't seem to understand the problem with the airconditioning. It was still a nice place to stay but does need some maintenance.

Amazing location in the trees. Beautiful cabin and main building. Warm, helpful, and friendly hosts. A perfect quiet retreat, close to rainforest activities.
