The front of the hotel is a dirt road and a tiny house, we were worried. When the incredibly nice owners took us towards the back, we walked into a nice big area with hammocks in a hut, and to the private entrance to our room which was spacious, high ceilings, fan, ac, mini fridge, and just great! The owner is a fantastic lady, who helped us with scheduling taxis and walked with us to town to show us where to dine. Town is a 10 min walk.
