Dear Joni, Thank you for choosing our Hotel and taking from your time to visit our profile. Glad that you enjoyed the room. What a great ocean view, right? Closet issue is been taken care, I promise :-) Please excuse us for the monkey incident, we don´t encourage our Staff to do that and are now arranging with Kids Saving The Rainforest to come to the Hotel and provide recommendations and/or instructions on how to manage or deal with wildlife visitors, in order to become a safe place for them. Looking forward to host you again. Have a great and blessed weekend!
