It was a wonderful stay. Our hosts were very nice and caring. The house where we sleep were very comfortable.
Nice clean room with beautiful gardens all around. Nice stay...but beware light sleepers roosters abound!
The Garden of Eden is a lovely B&B in a peaceful, beautiful setting run by two very kind and helpful owners. We stayed in their spacious 2 bedroom apartment with a well-stocked kitchen (although we didn't use it much because we only stayed one night). My kids loved the pool. As others have noted, Jan's breakfast was phenomenal - freshly squeezed mango and orange juice, fresh fruit artfully presented, homemade quiche, homemade soft pretzel with cheese and ham on top, and homemade coconut sticky buns. We were so full, Jan was nice enough to wrap up all our leftovers to take with us on the plane home. Avtar was a wealth of information and took us on a wonderful tour of their gardens, pointing out species of plants and fruits and telling interesting stories along the way. I'd highly recommend the Garden of Eden.
The only thing I'd recommend to the hosts is to make sure guests know in advance about their two large German Shephards (maybe they are already mentioned in the description, but I don't recall reading about them). They are nice dogs, but very energetic and large. My kids loved them but some guests may not.
This property is amazing, and the hosts are great. Jan stayed up with us until the wee hours of the night helping us drive out into the jungle. Great times!
