It took us a while to settle in to this place, initially we were a bit shocked to feel like the only people there, the challenge of non English speaking staff and the run down state of much of the property.
Then, we figured out how to use google translate, found the bus station with great local food next door and enjoyed being in the gardens and jungle for the rest of our stay.
This place has so much potential. It clearly caters more to school groups, team building trips and local visitors.
If you’re feeling adventurous though, spend at least three nights to properly explore all the activities and the entire property.
This property won’t work for you if you need mobility aides or a pram.
The pool is enormous
The list of activities is massive.
Do a sightseeing tour on day one to see everything briefly and then decide where you’d like to spend more time.
We were given a mobile number of a person who spoke English and we texted basic things like what activities we’d like to do and when.
Longs sleeves and trousers
Comfy walking shoes
Suncream and hat
Be prepared to see insects, reptiles and animals. Gorgeous flowers, fruits and plants.
Breakfast buffet was fantastic when it was on. We ordered breakfast items (eggs and bacon) for dinner on our last night because we didn’t find the local vegetables and meat dishes to our taste.
