Stayed here for 2 nights and it was wonderful. The 170 steps up to our room at first was a shock but we got used to it quick. The rooms are beautiful with an outdoor shower. Wonderful hot shower with perfect pressure. No mosquitoes too so it was great. Only disappointing thing is that there isn't a view of the volcanoes. You can only see them at the outdoor lounge area by the dock. Love what they are doing here with going green. The last boat to get here is at 5pm so dinner options are limited to the restaurant there. It's a 3 course dinner costing 100Q but simply beautiful and worth it. The reception area/lounge has an open fire and it's a great place to have a night cap or cozy up with a book. Blankets are also available everywhere. Also there are these beautiful vines off the ceiling with flowers hanging down at the lounge area and dining balcony. Amazing. Best thing possibly is the friendly staff. I was sick on my 2nd night there and the way the cared for me with tea and the right food, nursedr back to health straight away. Would definitely stay here again!
