Disliked: Staff & service
We enjoyed our tent. It was perfect for a family of four and had everything that we needed. Excellent to have a large fridge and freezer and the kitchen was well equipped. The only negative is that most of staff are pretty grumpy and rude.

When I arrived, they had no idea of my booking. Luckily, they had room, but this should not have happened. Especially if you book a year in advance.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great stay overall. The lodge is a true oasis and a welcome sanctuary of lush green foliage and birdsong in the middle of the desert. One word of caution - if you need access to the internet, they have an outmoded voucher system that makes using the internet both highly inefficient and costly for guests. Connecting and sharing with family back home was a pain. Aside from our frustration with the internet access, we had an amazing stay! Highly recommend if you are planning to unplug completely.
