Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation was for two locations unsuitable.
I was served tinned vegetables and rice for one meal and the room had cockroaches and millipedes in it.

Claire from In The Saddle comments: We have been informed that bugs are an issue as the area is a sub tropical environment with thick tropical vegetation around the hotel rooms. The hotel informed the ride operator that it had been fumigated about 2 weeks ago so these are not resident bugs. They have also informed us that shogololo (millipedes) are as everyday as spiders and mosquitoes and they walk in everywhere especially when it is raining.

We are following up about the unacceptable meal.
