  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Our stay here was so great. We were greeted by Daniela, who spoke great English, and was patient while we practiced our Spanish. The property is well kept and has just the right amenities. Nice small pool, two jacuzzis, and our room (#6) was the suite on the upper level and apparently only rooms 5&6 have volcano views, so we lucked out. We came down for coffee and breakfast every morning, which was convenient (even if the breakfast wasn’t the greatest). Having said that,

    Secluded property with private bungalows. Feels like you're in the jungle. Nice pool and hot tubs, which came in handy after hiking the volcano and waterfall. Waterfall is within walking distance from the property and certainly worth the visit. Our room was very large with a private patio. Good wifi was also a plus.
