Disappointing lounge with a high price
The service at this expensive lounge is disappointing. In general there is no prompt help and everything is very slow and not organized.

The view here is great. The food was good, not five star but solid. The staff there are excellent. True good service and very nice people. The spa service was a joy after so many days in the car. Would do again.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We had a very nice stay there the only problem was that this part of the country was hit by a lot of rain so quite a few of the roads in the crater was closed or flooded with a great risk to pass.

Absolutely AMAZING place! Incredible views of the crater from all rooms. Nice bar, great restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Service top notch. Make sure you show them you have prepaid for your room, as they wanted to charge me twice initially....
