We very much enjoyed our stay here. The cabin is clean, very quiet location in the jungle. A car is needed as its outside of town and better to get to nearby beaches. Catharina, the property manager, was very helpful to us as our phone didnt work. She was staying next door for the time we were there and saved us more than once with making reservations forr our next leg of the journey. Her kindness and friendliness made our experience. We recommend the cabins for a jungle experience.
The listing was accurate and the accommodations were good. Hospitality galore and when missing any item it was delivered by Annie very quickly!
