Response from Mojo:

At our jungle location there is naturally occurring mold on most plants on the property and on any surface that is left alone for a couple of weeks. That is what happens in a rainforest.

The vast majority of our Eco-tourists understand that and enjoy the beautiful aspects of living in green, lush nature. They appreciate that, as a ‘green’ community we do NOT want to continually use bleach in a futile attempt to sanitize nature.

It tends to be the “normal” tourists used to climate controlled environments who we have the most difficulties with. ‘Normal’ tourists tend not to care about how many chemicals are used as long as everything looks ‘clean’!

We were hesitant to accept this reservation because our eco-tourist community is not really setup for families with children who tend to be more fussy in general and looking for a standard hotel experience.

Additionally we got the sense during their stay that they were complaining in an attempt to get a discount by hinting they might give a negative review.

According to our Intern Manager report on these guests: “It was also very difficult to read their satisfaction because they were happy and friendly with us during interactions and they did recognize that we put in some extra effort to do what we could.”

In other words, they seemed to be happy with our response to their concerns. They even bought a case of beer for the interns who re-cleaned the place after they complained. And then after they write a very mixed review!

For future guests please note that this is a tropical rainforest and we are an eco-community. Though we use natural cleaners, they tend not to kill mold as effectively as bleach. However, bleach is a hazardous chemical so we try to only use it about once every 3 - 6 months or when absolutely necessary! This means a healthier vacation in the rainforest for you!

Our lodgings are open air so most tourists are not affected as they might be if they were sleeping in a close confined space. However, if you have any acute sensitivities to mold then please take the necessary precautions or medications.
