I cannot say enough about this place and the proprietors! We got the suite and were astonished by the beautiful workmanship and views. It is pretty much a glass house! We sat at the Viewpoint and watched the sun set. Everyone was extremely helpful and gave us great tips on local places to eat.
Included in the (already low) rates was an authentic breakfast, served in the communal dining room. Best breakfast of the trip, with cheese made from the milk of their cows on site! That was so incredible!
If you want a quiet, low-key place to stay, I highly recommend it. We were here first night for one night, saw the volcano and then headed to other places. If I was with a significant other, I'd stay here longer, but there's no real town to speak of, for entertainment.
