Jack's Jungle

Simple rooms in the forest

What we say: 3.5 stars

One of the first resorts to appear amid Lipe's inland terrain, Jack's Jungle has been around since the days when most of the island was actually still covered in jungle. The fact that it's preserved a sizable patch of said jungle is remarkable. The place's vibe seemed to have lost some of its magic on our most recent visit; the fact that the young woman who showed us around looked baffled when we asked, "Is Jack here?" probably has something to do with that. The setup and prices haven't changed, with a small number of simple yet classy bungalows peppered a good distance apart over a lushly forested hillside. Both the bamboo and wood bungalows come with several windows, large porches, firm beds with mosquito nets and lovely garden bathrooms with cold water and completely open roofs above the bamboo showerheads. There's slightly more space in the wood versions and more open spaces for crawly things to enter in the bamboo editions. Jack's still seemed like a good option for those who appreciate their peace and quiet, though several neighbouring empty lots with "For Sale" signs could spell construction noise in the future. The location puts you a five-minute walk to Sunset Beach and 10- to 15 minutes from either of the larger beaches. You'll want a torch and mosquito repellent if staying here.
