A very enjoyable stay. We loved the jungle feel of the place. Great restaurant and pool. It's very close to everything we wanted to see - the orang-utans & the sun bears, and the proboscis monkeys were not too far in a taxi. The staff were all very welcoming and helpful except for one waitress who was unfortunately very rude and gave very bad looks like I was inconveniencing her every time I asked for something.. That said, she was just one annoyance in an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable stay.

We stayed in the dorm room here, the single beds were nice instead of bunk beds. The room was basic but comfortable, the fan kept us cool. It had a cold water shower but this is standard for the area. The resort is in an ideal location, just a short walk away from the Orangutan Sanctuary! The pool was lovely and refreshing after a hot day too. Food in the restaurant could be better, there's other options close by.
