          Hello Verriem, We were surprised by your review. Our reception staff is usually very friendly, can you try to help identify with who you might have had problems? All our guests who stayed with us in May stayed in our newly re-painted rooms. The smell could have been paint smell or varnish?? The sheets are washed everyday of course. For the wifi, as you might have noticed, we are in the rainy season.. and the weather does affect our connexion even if does not rain at the lodge but in the antenna area. Could you tell us the exact date of your stay so we can try to identify which room you occupied?? We do take very seriously the reviews of our guests.
