Piece of paradise on earth!
It was a really enjoyable stay, the fact that it was secluded in the rainforest really allowed us to be submerged by nature. And the view of the volcano is just absolutely stunning! The service was great and the food was good for all the family, even the little ones. The trails on the property were very convenient to observe the wildlife! All in all I would recommend this hotel to my friends and f amily!... (read more)

Nice Hotel

This hotel is far from town, all the way uphill, quite secluded, but very best view of the volcano. The room is quite strange, all glass window just in front of your bed, if there is no other guest rooms around you will be great, but if someone passing by may see you on your bed. Restaurant serve superb Beef and very good breakfast.
Excellent Hotel
