We are a family of four that stayed here in April. We booked direct with the hotel and were attracted to the hot springs boasted by the resort.
The rooms were decent. Spacious and clean but not luxurious for the $. The restaurant by the main pool serves excellent dinner.
Pros: good location to volcano, wifi throughout resort, small fitness facility, friendly staff
Cons: hot springs were nice but loaded with tourists, and a bit commercial, restaurant at hit springs not the greatest food, the resort itself is not as large as pictured.
I think there are many places to stay near the volcano. For the price I may have stayed elsewhere.
