The breakfast was nice and the food in the restaurant was good!

The views from the hotel are incredible, but the drive up to the hotel is challenging and made getting in and out of town more difficult. Some of the staff were very helpful, others just ok. The restaurant staff was very inattentive most of the time. The rooms were adequate and got the job done.

This a nice eco lodge. I've stayed here before and have never been let down. Most people we met were happy but some probably belonged at a bigger resort with more amenities. The lodge is about 40 minutes from town so it was nice to have our rental car. Even the grounds are spread out. We had a suite near the front desk, but some of the other rooms are up on a hill or further down another hill. I'd recommend a rental car to anybody staying here. The lodge itself is on a big private reserve. We saw tons of animals, especially birds at breakfast. The volcano was clouded over this time but was clear the last time we went and the views were spectacular. The breakfast buffet is good. The steak we had for dinner was excellent. I think to appreciate this lodge you have to want to stay at a real eco lodge. We enjoyed looking for frogs in the gardens at night and all of the wildlife. The rooms are nice enough but ould use a little updating and brighter lighting. We joked that some of our friends would hate the rustic feel but again, it was perfect for us.
