The view of the volcano from our room and dining room was perfect, and the breakfasts were very good. The hotel itself, however, needs a lot of work. Our room had a great balcony with tons of windows, but the room itself was old and the wood walls/floors were decaying. The furniture was dated, the beds were very flat and uncomfortable. The roaches, however, didn't seem to mind. The overhead light in the room didn't work and they couldn't seem to fix it, so our dark room stayed even darker than expected. There is free WiFi, but it only works if you are within 30 feet of the access point. The grounds themselves are beautiful and well kept, and the nature walk is worth doing.
