Set beautifully in the middle of the jungjj oh e. Views are amazing. The daily breakfast is a buffet and is plenty. Servers provide great service always. The property does not have thermal spas, so you must visit another property and pay entrance fee in order to access the thermal pools. Also, the breakfast restaurant is located in a separate building so you have to either take a five minute walk or drive there, hills are involved.

The location of this property was perfect; outside the busy town and nestled into the jungle with stunning views of the volcano. The staff were exceptional and even though we had to work through some billing discrepancies, all was made right in the end. Aside from needing some upkeep, the property was fantastic and I would highly recommend staying here.

The suite was so beautiful with a perfect view of the volcano. The grounds are lovely. Staff is so nice and helpful. Loved our rock shower. The breakfast was wonderful. Only thing they could improve was quality and selection of dinner dishes. We would have enjoyed more local dish options
