I read horrible reports about the food at the Jungle Lodge prior to staying there - but the food was decent/good when I stayed there for 2 nights in April. As a NYC foodie, I think I have good taste!
The only complaint I had about the place is the 2" gap between the wall and ceiling dividing each cottage into 2 rooms. I could hear every word the couple in the room next door said
But, being right there - plus the howler monkeys hanging out at the hotel - made it all worthwhile.
