We stayed 3 nights during Easter Week in Room 210. The room was nice and big, and we had outstanding views of the volcano, which we luckily saw every single day. Maybe due to the holiday, there were many families at the resort when we were there. The rooms are “duplex” style – 2 rooms per building. We are a family of 4, and had I known this, I might have spent the extra money to book two rooms. It would have been nice to have both sides of the “duplex”. Unfortunately, the walls between the 2 rooms are paper thin, and the family on the other side had a young child who screamed and cried every night. That was very unfortunate.
The grounds of the hotel are beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on our terrace and seeing tons of birds and other wildlife. We even saw toucans in the trees one evening. Every evening, the white egrets fly in to roost in one of the trees by the pond – a lovely sight!
We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly, and the breakfast buffet had lots of options.
The hotel is a bit far from town. We had a car, so this wasn’t a problem for us, but is something people should consider when planning their stay.
