Bring your own mosquito net! The room had 'ventilation gaps' in the wall rather than windows, and as there wasn't anything covering them it was mosquito central in the room and bathrooms. The nets provided have plenty of holes in. The pool is nice though, as was the breakfast and staff.

My stay was fine, location makes it hard to get food at night without taking a taxi since they don't recommend walking at night (especially as a solo female traveler). The rooms were clean and the shower was hot The staff were all fabulous! I wish it were more clearly stated that the rooms are not sealed. I was there in winter which doesn't have as many mosquitos from what I heard, but you literally have to just sit under your mosquito net or get eaten alive since there are gaps in the walls.
