The rooms: no coffee maker, no fridge, shared veranda with other guests. The common areas: beautiful common areas overlooking the river. There are private docks for use which we used often due to the set up of the verandas. The pool area is fine and will definitely meet your need for cooling down. The food: One of the most pleasant surprises was the food. It is exceptionally good (except the fish tacos as they are breaded and fried).

The rooms were gorgeous - like lodges and had balconies with hammocks and a beautiful garden view. The grounds were lovely, full of wildlife, which we were shown on the hotel’s tour of the gardens.
