This is more of a hostel than a hotel. The bathrooms were as basic as could be, and the rooms were not much better. Worst of all though was the activities team - and after all, that's why you're there. They were not helpful, not knowledgeable and provided inaccurate

Yes Mosquitoes are there but the hotel has control measures on reducing the impact such as fly-screens and insecticides in all rooms. I also know they have systems that repel mosquitoes that are approved by competent authorities. Further, the Hotel can send you a brochure on malaria control which is also found in every room.
