    The location and the idea of this place are fascinating (it's properly 'in the jungle'), but we felt that the line between 'natural' and ' a bit scruffy' wasn't ideal..... The bungalows are big and spacious, but they're also pretty rough around the edges. The...More

    About 500 meters, there is a walking path right across the street thru trees Sometimes you will find monkeys or macaws flying over.

    How reliable is the wife there? Is the pubic area loud? Can one be able to have a decent phone conversation in public are or will there just be too much jungle noise in the background? Is there a safe in the room or a way to have my personal belongings (s.a passport) kept with someone in front desk while I am out and about? Thanks
