We stayed here on a package tour and had no idea what to expect. After flying into and then driving from San Jose we were exhausted. We were greeted and checked in quickly and got to relax in the natural hot springs pools (and did this every night of our stay!)
The resort has great views of the volcano, especially from the observation point - its well worth the hike. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.
One thing I would make sure not to do is get advice on excursions from the hotel they are marked up quite a bit and the concierge is a little pushy. We found Eric (Volcano Lake Adventures) in town right near the Backpacker's Hostel and he was very friendly and reasonable. He is a Californian who relocated to Costa Rica and has gotten a TripAdvisor award for helping tourists. He can book you any excursion you wan in CR and get you a really good price!
