This place was everything we read it was in previous reviews. Alvaro and his wife were super friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious (we had Typical style both mornings). Our cabin was great. It was clean, spacious, cozy, and I lived the special touches of local flowers here and there. Towels could have been thicker but for $50+ a night I made due. We geocached and had a great walk to the waterfall. The area is absolutely beautiful. We had a car so we were able to drive into town very easily for dinner. We went rappelling with Pure Trek---can't say enough great things about them too. Also hiked in the National Rainforest Park. That was an incredible experience. The only negative was the first night we flew in. We drove what should have been 2-3 hrs to find the hotel and it was a nightmare---not due to poor road conditions---due to complete lack if road signage. My husband works in the oil fields in rural NM & TX and is used to driving like that & we STILL had problems finding this hotel. No one knew where it was!!! We stopped to ask many people. I speak Spanish fluently. Finally some police knew and pointed us in the right direction. There is no signage for it at all like there is for some of the larger hotels. We arrived close to 3 am. Alvaro had gone to bed so we had to sleep in our rental car. It was awful. We got no refund for that night's stay and we're glad it was only a loss of $50 ish. We would have rated it 5 stars were it not for it's total lack of signage.
