Stayed 2 nights in December 2019


Because of some reason, they made my room upgraded. I really appreciate it. Foods I ordered were truely high standard. And stuff were friendly. The only downside was that hot water wasn't available. As it was pretty chilly, I really wanted it. (I'm not sure about other rooms) Location is great, has a big garden and pool. I can recommend this place.

German from Spain
Standard Double Room with Private Bathroom
Stayed 1 night in August 2016


We stay 2 days and 2 nights. 1 night in a private room with bathroom and the other night in a dorm room where we were alone but the bathroom was shared. The first night was amazing, the room is really cozy, clean and very nice. The owner decorated all and he has good taste for this. Second night, in the dorm room, was different but good too, more simple and we slept very well. The place is absolutly calm. Is the last destination where you can arrive with a 4 wheels vehicle and not all type of cars can do it, but if you phone the owner he'll pick you near Deniyaya. The location is at the entrance of the rainforest. The owner arranged the 7 hours tour for us with the best guide of the reserve and was incredible, we saw a lot of snakes, lizards, monkeys, giant squirrels, bugs, frogs, ... We swam in the river and got a massage from little waterfalls. Was a perfect experience . The food was delicious from breakfast to dinner and the service very good. We was really happy there and we'll highly recomend this to our friends. (Actually they are under construction of 5 privates rooms more that will be finished soon)
