Nestled in picturesque valley high in the beautiful mountains surrounded by colourful, cultivated gardens.
Cabins are semi detached and squeaking floor boards transmit noise from on to the other. The cabin was clean but not luxurious, which wasn't a problem, but was let down by small things such as missing light bulbs and intermittent hot water in the shower.
The food was poor, buffet style with limited choice and imagination, we had a choice of their farmed tout or dried up pork. Portion sizes were unnecessarily mean.
Quetzal tour was ideal to locate the two nests in the area, we had a great view of two pairs visiting their nests. The guide was friendly and knowledgable.
We are fit people who do a lot of walking however the distance to our cabin up many steps at the high altitude was physically demanding, make sure you request a cabin near to the facilities if you can't manage this.
The lodge offers a tour to the waterfalls but this is easily accessed by driving to the end of the road and following the signs past the trout farm.
Overall a good place to stop to bird watch but 2 nights is plenty of time to do this.
