A stylish, tranquil spot on the edge of Santa Cruz. The beautiful lakeside dining deck and living room with fireplace were perfect places for relaxing. There is also an outdoor area with loungers and hammocks (some hammocks were in need of replacement though).
The rooms are more rustic than what you might expect given the "boutique" vibe of the hotel common areas, but remember that you are basically in the jungle in a town that is only accessible by boat. Our bungalow was very cute, but the mattresses were on the thinner side. The bathroom is open-air with a view, but the shower was generally cold. As other reviews mentioned, be prepared to potentially walk many stairs uphill to your room. The reward is seclusion and lovely views of the lake!
The staff were helpful and friendly and made us feel right at home, especially Ollie who was a wonderfully warm host. The food was excellent and they had many lighter, fresh options -- a nice change after eating heavier, local food elsewhere on our trip.
All in all, there are some minor things that could be done to make things more comfortable (new hammocks and mattresses!) but I loved my stay and would not hesitate to stay here again.More
