The grounds and view of volcano was fantastic and loved the breakfast. But that is about the only positive things I can say about this place. No AC so the comforter & sheets felt damp all the time from the humidity. The lighting is dark so i wouldnt read at night. There is no sound barrier between rooms in the lodges so I wouldn't suggest this place for honeymooners. The staff were semi-helpful when they weren't spending time Facebooking on their computers behind reception desk. Scheduled tours weren't on time either. We were suppose to meet in lobby at 12:15 but the van didn't pick us up to take us to our tour destination until nearly 2pm.
