The grounds are absolutely beautiful. The rooms were great, decorated nicely. The pool is fantastic! Hard to get past the lack of air conditioning. It’s definitely warm in August despite all of the fans. Clearly they give you this information up front but it does not cool down much at night from our perspective. We would return but would do so in a different time of the year.

We stayed 3 nights and left wishing we had more time. The property was beautiful, food amazing, and pool very relaxing. The staff was fantastic, Freddy the security guard, Sieve, Leo, Dirven, Peter and Petra! The gal who brought us coffee. I know im missing names. Everyone was wonderful. We will be back!! I highly recommend canoeing on the river and checking out the Myan ruins.

Wonderful people but rough jungle bugs
The property is beautiful and charming. The staff makes you feel like family. They are wonderful. I had an amazing massage. The tours and guides were fantastic. The food is good but very overpriced and they should be more competitive since you’re stranded there if you don’t have a rental car. They need to seal the rooms off better. There was a post rain flying termite incident that is part of jungle life but we had hundreds of termites in our room and that was one of the worse nights ever in a hotel. My children were traumatized and it was horrible. The next night there was a scorpion on my daughters bed. No AC and tons of bugs in the room was rough on us and we were very ready to leave. We could have handled the heat but the termites and scorpions were more than we could bear. They gave us a small discount, but only after we requested one due to very little sleep. My entire family of four had to share a bed because of the termites and scorpion in the kids room. It was not relaxing and we spent thousands of dollars on food and activities.
