Hotel was just as we wanted. Staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Hotel was clean, comfortable, quiet


Great hotel and dinner was delicious, and pricing was reasonable at the restaurant. Would even stay here if we come back again, for a longer stay


Beautiful hotel. The view to the volcano was amazing as well as exotic birds at the hotel. The greenery was spectacular!


Special mention for the restaurant. We had an excellent meal at a very reasonable price,


Our hotel room was clean and comfortable and the views were amazing. The staff was super nice and friendly.


Good location, very close to the town and restaurants. The rooms were clean and I really enjoyed the volcano view!


I'd suggest adding a dehumidifier in the bathroom. We had that in our second hotel and it worked wonders for drying out wet clothing. But, we LOVED the rain showerhead - so much that we were looking to buy one when we got home!!


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and appreciated the proximity to town. Hotel staff handled some large groups very efficiently, while we never felt crowded out by groups, especially at breakfast. Although a bit pricey, dinner in the hotel restaurant was delicious and service was attentive.


The A/C did not work all the time, it used to work for sometime and did not other times; People were occasionally smoking in the pool and lawn area, it used to smell of smoke in my room if we open the balcony door; There was no free coffee in the afternoon (US hotels usually have free coffee).


The hotel was comfortable and had clean. The food on site had vegetarian options which was good. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.


Nice hotel, within walking distance of the main town and supermarket which was great.
