Terrible place terrible host
This place was tertible very below standard and host was not helpful or polite ,actuality rude and dismissive .The actual cabin had not fly screening in an area that is onfected by insects especially mosquitoes, there is no air-conditioning, in an area that is quite hot and humid , we were told to just shut the doors to keep insects out but there was not air in cabins and it was so hot and humid even with fans going. There was no offer of refund and then I saw we had been charged extra for a room with a fridge, when the common area fridge was broken, when we were told we cohld have a room with a fridge as a free up grade . Judt totally disgusted in this place and the woman who runs it .
