A Swiss Family Robinson experience
Tree Top is true to its name and worth a night's stay for the novelty alone of the two rooms on very high stilts with views across the trees to the hill or the ocean.
The rooms are charming, made entirely of wood, with power 24/7 though no hot water in the bathroom which, whilst private, is a few steps below the room. The placement of the tree houses right next to the road struck us as slightly unfortunate. In general, rooms seem to have been arranged around the pepper trees, pineapple patches and mangoes, meaning the layout of the large grounds can be a bit confusing. The focal point is the large restaurant deck with wonderful sea views, WiFi and well-priced food, but sadly short on comfy sofas. The range of accommodation choices -- a $5 room with a shared bathroom, an ensuite $20 bungalow or those tree houses -- makes this a good choice for friends on differing budgets. Made from bamboo, wood and rush matting, some rooms are showing signs of age and some wildlife is to be expected. Little English is spoken here, which sort of adds to its rustic allure, but the female manager is a treat.
