We stayed here over New Year 2011/2012 and had a really lovely time.
The family were so pleasant and helpful and even asked us to celebrate the New Year with them.
You have a fantastic view of the volcano if it is clear.
Location is very convenient right next to a super market with all the equipment you need in the hotel to cook.
The rooms are clean and the bathrooms are nice although quite basic.
The breakfast is huge and delicious although you do have to drive into town to eat it as it is served in a restaurant
I would recommend you have a car as it is a bit of a distance out of town and I would rather not walk along the road in the evening in the dark.
What to do while you're there:
Hanging Bridges walk - really brilliant and just as good as the walks in Monteverde
Lava trail walk - good but sadly no actual red hot lava these days, the guides are really knowledgeavle though and show you how to spot wildlife when you are out walking on your own
Don Rufino restaurant - pricey but delicious
Tabacon spa - It is beautiful and a day spent there is so relaxing. The food wasn't that great though and they have only have 14 sun loungers for the 200 people who can access the pools. Get there early to get one!
