On the surface this hotel looks really cool with the private cabins, central location, great view of the volcano, and wonderfully maintained landscaping. However, the negatives of this hotel negate almost all of the positives. Our room was infested with ants and spiders but luckily the geckos would crawl under the door and through the gaps in the wood slats in the walls to feed throughout the night while we tried to sleep. The constant chirping of the geckos in our room throughout the night made it very difficult to sleep. Not to mention, having lizards crawling on the walls and floors in the dark was kind of creepy. The beds were uncomfortable and worn, with dingy thin sheets through which you could see and smell the mattress. The decor was extremely dated, making the cabin more shabby than rustic. There were large gaps in the wood slat walls that allowed geckos and bugs to pass freely. Also, in the morning the sunlight would stream through the openings in the walls. It was odd that underneath our cabin and those on either side of us there was a significant amount of garage and debris. There was an old rusty telephone booth, a bike, paint cans, garage bags, shoes, just about anything you can image. The front of the cabin had greenery that blocked the view but when sitting on the porch or walking up the steps the array of discarded items were in plan view. If you decided to stay at this hotel I would recommend that you stay in a traditional room over the private cabins. The traditional rooms appeared to be in better condition without the problems of the less than desirable cabins.
