We stayed here last week on a Gate 1 tour, and can echo the WOW offered by others. First, the room - My room was no. 21. The check-in person looked up at us as he handed us the key and said "You are lucky - it's the best room on the property." When we arrived at the room I could see he was right!! The HUGE room is over 900 square feet, looked new, and was furnished with a king bed and antiques and oriental rugs. The king bed looked lost in the large space! There was a jacuzzi tub,. separate toilet room, great shower, and being on the second floor had a wall of windows that overlooked an active volcano! Doesn't get much better than that.
The food here is absolutely gourmet too. We had our farewell dinner here, and my fillet mignon was superb. Breakfast is served with crepes and other fresh made goodies.
I cannot overstate the kind hospitality we were given by the staff and owner in person. It was just super, and helped make our trip a truly memorable one.
