It was an awesome experience. We have been to many different chalets in the past few years, but this was the best. It's very difficult to please my sons & they were in love with this place, lots of fun filled activities. We loved it. It was our first time at Smilin Thru Eco Resort...but definitely not the last!

Superb. 5 out of 5

We organised a family reunion (78 people) at the resort. From the first contact, to the last contact with staff, it was professional and friendly. The different chalets and houses were well equipped and comfortable. They cater to all shapes and sizes and ages, more than enough for kids to do. Not one person could complain about anything about the resort. We all had a great weekend and will definitely using the resort again. Next time with fishing rods! Thank you Smilin Thru for a great stay.
