Tried this after staying at Iguana and they became full. We stayed in 2 different rooms. First a shared bath. Great view, good double bed, enough but not much additional space. It had electric light and I think one outlet. Bath was outside down a dark rock path. A bit hard for old folk to navegate at night. Second room much nicer with private bath. Same great view.More space, double and single beds. But cost Q100 more. Same price as a nice private cottage at Iguana, less fancy, but with view:-)
Service was spotty. They are local folks, the admin/restaraunt are closed at night and may or may not be open when you want them. Shower needed gas turned on and lit for hot shower. One morning i couldn't get it lit and no one was there so cold shower.
Food at restaraunt ok when we ate there, more traditional Guatemalan. They will try to accommodate you.
I was not happy when they tried to add a 10% tip to my bill on check out. This was removed after discussion.
Overall pretty quiet with great views of the lake and volcanos when they were out.
