We arrived via our tour (with trail finders) and was greeted upon arrival by the manager who has owned/lived here for 9 years (Jimmy). All the staff were extremely friendly and we were even welcomed with a glass of orange juice.
The rooms are spacious with 2 double beds, air con, separate WC and shower room. The shower is rather weak. There are hot showers, you need to flick a switch - ask at reception if you don't get hot water.
The grounds are superb. The rooms are all interconnected with an elevated walkway and we had a variety of monkeys making an appearance.
Be warned - don't leave ANYTHING outside your rooms, otherwise the monkeys will have it!
