    Part of tour with OAT. Rooms are really nice- good beds- not enough lighting- beautiful views and sunsets! Very strong winds all night! Meals were good but overcrowded and the bar is woefully understaffed- painfully slow. Very close to the cloud forest.

    I don't know the answer to your question. However there are certainly many open outside areas where you could likely smoke. Not sure about designated areas in restaurants. Sorry I don't smoke so I didn't pay much attention... More

    Our birding guide is picking us up at 6 am. He mentioned that there might be a locked gate preventing him from driving onto the hotel property at that time. Is that accurate? How far/long of a walk is it to this gate from the main building? Also I see a big pond on the property. Are there many frogs to see around this pond? Thank you very much.

    I didn't think they locked the gates, although there is security staff very near. The main gate may be quite far from your room but it's opposite reception, but you would need to check if they are running the shuttle service... More
