We just returned! Check in and check out was without glitch. The staff are helpful and awesome! Clean, neat rooms! Lovely breakfast, pizza and cocktails. Close to the falls and also to most excursions. Lovely mosquito nets too!

We had dinner at the Lodge. Menu was varied, they also have a pizza den. Beautiful, peaceful setting on the River (especially at night with all the lights). The meal was well presented, quick and tasty. Staff were helpful and friendly.
