I ended up booking this hotel b/c of the location but I didn't think i would enjoy it very much b/c I didn't like the look of the hotel room. However after staying there, the hotel amenities and the layout of the facilities were top notch and made me completely forget about the room itself.
First, the hot springs pool at the front was convenient and always perfect for unwinding after a day full of local tours/adventures.
Second, the grounds/facilities were very nicely laid out, well kept, and the staff was friendly and attentive. Everyone was helpful and the view of the volcano from the porch was wonderful!
The beds were clean and comfortable. The only recommendation I have is that they need to change the lighting from the bright white light to a softer, warmer light.
Btw, the walls are thin. Be ready for it.
Overall a great stay!
