Tribes Overall:

Great trip, superb holiday, well organised, lived up to expectations, very good value for money.

Some minor observations where there is room for improvement. ( but overall very well done Tribes whom we will happily return to for future holidays)

Tribes Service:

Responsive service, very well served by in country agent. Disappointed that Vamoos was not used to full potential, ie no live itinerary updates ( particularly collection timings)

Guides:

All brilliant, knowledgeable, committed, enthusiastic.

Lovely beach-side setting, but Very disappointing room (115) overlooking road at rear of hotel. Staff service and attitude varied from generally friendly to dismissive. Not in same league as other hotels on our trip.

Chayote Lodge

Costa Rica

Peaceful, relaxing, remote, fantastic views, great way to end trip to Costa Rica. Note that no meals are available before 1500hrs, so no sense in arriving for lunch. Very helpful staff, if a little disorganised.
