I booked this hotel after reading other TA reviews and we were thrilled with this location. When traveling with a family of 5 it is often difficult to find lodgings that allow all of us to stay in one room. Since our children are 14, 12 and 9, this is crucial. Our cabin was very spacious and had two queen beds and one twin. Perfect! The staff seemingly never leaves and was very helpful and extremely friendly (can only remember Fernando's name, sorry). Americans Todd and Amanda, who have worked at the hotel since January, gave us great tour referrals and indulged our many questions about their time in the Peace Corps. This hotel has the feel of a B&B but offers more privacy and the amenities of a small resort. The on site hot springs are a bonus that allows one to skip very commercial Baldi Springs. We all wished we could have stayed longer.
