    The grounds are beautiful, and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. After a long day of hiking the room was perfect for winding down.

    We had to be at the hotel before 11pm

    Location is very good, inside the forest area right next to the Volcano. Lots of amenities such as walks, Jacuzzi and observatory. Hotel can also book activities for you, beautiful and big property. Friendly Staff.

    Food is not good and overpriced. Breakfast was also not good. No fridge, iron, or hair dryer in room. Smoking not allowed in balcony either. Overpriced.
