HOTEL: very cute, clean, and super friendly. Lorena ( gosh, i think that is her name: blond, caucasion, speaks little english but is great...and she usually works the desk front area). I like her, she was super friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Try staying on the 3rd floor or above to get away from the street noise and to enjoy the view of the hotel.
INTERNET: very weak signal upstairs. They do offer two computers in teh lobby to use.
RESTAURANT: free breakfast, very minimal. Be sure to ask for the menu for you american omelette and other stuff.
LOCATION: ont he back side of the volcano. You can only see the side with vegetation and the smoke on a clear day. To see the lava rocks falling down, stay on the otherside of the volcano...perhaps, Tabacon area or the big name resorts. (you want the ashy side of the volcano to enjoy the lava rocks in the evening-trust me, very beautiful to watch)
PRICE: very reasonable...some other locaionts go up to $250...we paid only $50 a night ...
