    Room was clean, and spacious - fan was sufficient to keep room very comfortable. Hot and cold running water. Grounds manicured and tropical. Pool small but very cool. Food variety was large, wait staff super helpful and accommodating.

    Dear Lagitz I am so sorry to hear you had such a bad experience at our hotel! I am absolutely devastated to read some of the comments that you have made showing that your expectations were far from met and also that this review will obviously cause considerable damage to our reputation in already tough year.:/ I hope you have a moment to awnser some questions of mine so that I may investigate immediately so that I can ensure no one else has the same experience! 1. What do you mean by not much water you could use? 2. Who did you speak to at reception? I am very confused as we do not have any female receptionists so… 3. Which maintenance work disturbed you? Thank you very much for your feedback! They say a guest sees more in a hour than a host sees in a year which must be true as your observations at the Outpost have obviously evaded my attention. Kindest Regards Simon
