It's in an excellent location. The atmosphere was rather sleepy seeing as the bar is closed but the workers next to our room were very noisy with their partying . The breakfast, swimming pool (shame you have to pay extra to use it) and manicured grounds are great. Other food and drink however, is very expensive and the quality of the food is average considering the price. There is a shop towards the crossroads where you can buy cheap booze but be sure to make sure you pay the right price.
Check in was a slow process with the telephone continually prioritised instead of the tired fresh off the bus customers. That said, they did collect us from the junction that the long distance bus had dropped us at (free of charge). The 4 bed dormitories seemed a little overpriced so we ended up going for a private room (we originally thought we'd booked into the normal dorm), which was perfectly comfortable. I wouldn't call it a "resort" however.

Really nice place, on a large block nestled in the jungle on a lake. Excellent location, a short walk to orang utan rehabilitation centre and rainforest discovery centre
