We spent 3 nights at this hotel during our honeymoon.
The place is really nice, built in the mountain, facing the lake and the volcano.
During our stay we couldn't appreciate the views because there was a tropical system affecting the area and we just got rain and rain and more rain. Even though the weather conditions were poor, we have to leave a positive review of the place because it is really beautiful and we enjoyed a few days of relaxing and really nice food.
Every room is secluded in one diferent spot and you have to reach it through the stairs. Some of them are a little bit of a hike but the staff are there to help you out with the bags.
Once you are in the room the views have to be amazing. We couldn't see them due to the amount of clouds but all the rooms are so well located that all of them can enjoy a nice view in a clear day.
We stayed in room 10 which has beautiful decoration, it is really private and it feels like a tree house. We moved to room 8 after and it was beautiful too, having a small balcony overlooking the lake. This one shares the bathroom but it is as nice as the other ones, so not such a big deal.
Finally I would like to mention the food. It was really tasty and with great proportions. Breakfast was delicious every day and the four course set dinner was really good value. All the prices are correct and they justify the value of the meal. You don't feel like one of those hotels where they charge you a huge price because it's difficult to get to other restaurants. Here you need to take a boat to eat somewhere else, but they don't take advantage of this and that's a thing we like about them and we thought we should mention it.
The only thing we didn't like 100% is the way they set up dinner. We were on a honeymoon trip and we would have enjoyed having a table for two rather than sharing dinner with everyone every night . Even though all the people we met there were really nice.
