Nice and clean. Lovely view from our room. English is a bit of a problem. WiFi only in foyer area but good. Only ate breakfast there which was nice.

... for valuable bat-dung, thus stumbling on the drawings. His grandson, Farmer Jose Bullon and his family now manage the caves and guide tour groups through, maximum of 25 visitors at a time, to preserve the fragile drawings. Once in the cave, Jose used a giant flashlight to point out the drawings (and the bats on the roof!) and we were only allowed one small light per two people, so we stumbled and bumbled our way ...
