    The nature and the lake are well worth the trip. The spaciousness of the room and the view is great. The AC worked well, it was nice to have cable TV for the night time and the mattress was comfy.

    The place is run down and for the price it’s very expensive. Many beautiful tropical plants but the garden area and plants need some love. It’s like staying in a noisy party hostel but more pricy. Unfortunately the staff do not control the bar/pool hours. Unfortunately there were drunk guests arguing and swimming till late. We didn’t have a peaceful sleep. The pillows are hard. The shower has live electric wires and the shower head is a hard stream not easy to take a shower. There are holes in the bathroom floor and you can see to the down stairs room. The nachos were not authentic with processed cheese and store bought chips. We sat at the same table for dinner when we arrived for breakfast it was still dirty from the night before. Too many property dogs in the restaurant begging for food although we arrived with a dog we respected the community spaces. We didn’t dare enter the pool area, it’s in need of some maintenance and an update.

    Breakfast was the same every day, but served fresh and delicious. The lake was lovely and easy to access. The staff was friendly and attentive once you got their attention. The beer was cold.

    Peeling paint on the ceiling of our room, the towel rack in the bathroom was broken, not all of the light switches worked. We were disappointed that the facilities weren't as nice as the pictures depicted. No beach towels provided. No hammocks down by the lake. Food was good one night and the same dish wasn't good the next night. Didn't feel as if the facilities were worth the amount of money we paid. Sometimes it was difficult to tell who was on staff and, even if they were, whether they were working or not. We heard some kind of critter in the decorative bamboo wall in our room - glad that happened on the last day as it would have been hard to sleep wondering what might come out of the wall! No wine or sangria available.

    The staff was very very sweet.

    The accommodations were very uncomfortable and not at all how they appeared in the pictures. It was myself, my husband, our friend and her 9 year old son. We were ‘upgraded’ to a better and roomier house called ‘Club House’. It was absolutely terrible, built from plywood that was falling apart, dirty, broken screens, furniture, beds. We were very happy to have booked only one night and didn’t complain only because the local staff was very very sweet and it is definitely not their fault that the owners rent such an unpleasant and run down accommodations. I am not very picky, but I would absolutely rate the accommodations as not fit for any stay and incredibly overpriced. I wouldn’t stay there again even if it was free, but I think maybe charging $10 a night for 4 would be a fair price, but not $69. For that price you can stay in way way better places on the Lagoon. I truly wish I had better things to say, but unfortunately I really do not. The Lagoon is as pretty as always no matter where you stay.

    Nothing this is the worse place you can stay the country is beautiful but this place is a complete scam nothing they offer is true.

    I rent 2 rooms and both of them where a lie the rooms where dirty the pool look like it was never clean it had green slime on the bottom after the lights when out in a power outrage and it was the whole night the mosquitoes where terrible we didn’t sleep all night if you want to throw away your money go head and stay here the food it’s horrible.
