This was a good place to stay with children. We had 3 adults and 2 kids in the room, in which they fully accomodated us with the two cot beds under the regular beds. The beds were hard, but there was AC. The bathroom was decent and we had a tv in the room. The hotel has several things to do to keep the kids entertained, but they are a bit less interesting for adults. The butterfly enclave thing did have a lot of butterflies, the frogs could not be found in their little area, the crocodiles and ant exhibits were interesting. We began the steep walk up to the volcano when we were told by other "hikers" that the top was nowhere near the actual volcano (as we had been told) and they were highly disappointed. Nonetheless, the hotel is directly at the foot of the volcano and it is quite awe inspiring. The breakfast buffet was decent, but the restaurant was very expensive for dinner. The warm/hot pools were probably the best part of the hotel, with several at varying tempartures, along with a few water slides. It's a bit out of town, so there's not really anything within walking distance - be prepared to drive. It was a decent hotel at a decent value.
