My husband and I stayed at the Volcano Rainforest Retreat for a few days during our honeymoon (in the forest house). This was hands down the best place I stayed on my honeymoon (or ever). The room was very romantic and comfortable. We loved the fireplace and the attention to detail. The cabin/cottage is located in the middle of a dense section of rainforest so although there are other cabins around it, it feels very private. To get around there are charming little footpaths. There is also a jacuzzi that's centrally located for your enjoyment. The owner showed us the other cabins and they were all great. It's true that the bed is not made every day, and that you do your own dishes. I think that this is not the place for people who want a high rise or commericial resort kind of feeling. This place has much more character than that and caters to people who want a genuine experience. The only down side for us was that we are continually looking for lodging like this when we travel and are usually disappointed.
