Hacienda sounded so nice, and the view I had sailing past on a tour was also beautiful. I paid the $57 a night price thinking a bit of luxury would be nice. Wrong!! I was given a spot in the middle of a wet paddock and the river was down the bottom. The toilet was not easily accessible especially at night when it poured with rain and juggling an umbrella and a torch in wind while dodging puddles in the dark was painful. I felt sorry for the little kids in an adjacent van. This morning they found a huge puddle that they turned into a mud pool and had a whale of a time playing in the mud. It did look fun. I won’t be staying here again unless its free.
The weather made everything look gloomy and the moss and lichens growing on all the trees suggest that this place is very wet and gets little sunshine.
I did get a rain free day when I was leaving…to see Mt Warning .
