The hotel room was nice, clean and the bathroom with the waterfall shower is really nice. The floor does get wet when you shower but there are extra towels you can put on the floor and it is worth it. The hotel grounds are lovely and attract tons of birds. Our room was a 2 unit bungalow (room 110) and it was nestled into the landscape. Our view was plants, shrubs and trees but it all blocked your view of the volcano. My sister received an upgrade (room 403) a private suite with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and private pool with the most incredible view of the volcano! Wow, this view made ours extremely lacking!!!! The hotel pool and bar area are nice. Juan the bartender was friendly, great service and loved to joke around with us and he made our stay enjoyable and memorable! Breakfast included a huge selection everything was very good. We ate dinner here one night and I loved my NY strip steak however my husband’s pasta tasted like barbeque sauce. How do you mess up spaghetti sauce – well they figured out how to do just that. We took the hotel shuttle into town. It was after 5pm so we paid $10 for the 4 of us. They gave us a card with the hotel number on it to call when we wanted to return (another $10 fee) but when we called at 9:30 pm to return no one could be reached. We were not told the hours of the shuttle and shame on us for not checking. Our waiter called a friend who drove us back for $10 - there were no cabs in the area. The hotel was dark and all locked up when we returned. We did really like the hotel grounds - beautiful job. If we come back we will stay in room 403 and enjoy the absolutely fantastic view of the volcano.
