Great value and excellent location for swimming in the river and starting the jungle treks. The welcome drink was lovely and the owners very friendly and helpful.
The wall-mounted fan isn&#39;t strong enough to reach the bed so it may get a bit warm. The power does go off throughout the day and night but that seems to be everywhere within the area.
