Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights and would have been more if only we hadn't run out of money (closest ATM is at the ferry point). It is a nice relaxed place where you can easily have a good day doing nothing. The staff are friendly and it seems to bring a cool vibe amongst the customers.
We stayed in a little private room, was a little cramped and hot but managed to sleep well enough.
The grounds are lovely where they grow all their own veg. We bought some freshly made bread and choice from one of the many freshly made jams for lunch one day and was tasty. The meals they offer at the restaurant isn't vast but of what they do offer was very tasty and fresh. Recommend the chicken salad.
They have 3 cute chiwawas running around.
The pizza they make a couple of times a week were a highlight.
We did the smaller volcano trek with them, the views were nice but the guide didn't really do much - just walk ahead of us, wasn't interested in telling us about the plants or animals we were seeing.
Nice place to stay and relax on the island.
