The best part about this hotel is the property itself. The night safari is free and we got to see two sloths as well as some other animals. The rooms are larger with large balcony. The beds are kinda hard. The buffet is ok.

Being in the middle of the rainforest is a unique experience. Didn't like that we could not take any of the tours. They were always full. Without taking the tour its just like any other hotel. Food was good but no beef in the menu....More
