This is an older lodge that has been very nicely updated with attractive room decor, comfortable bed and small but well-appointed bathroom. A crater-view room is well worth the extra $$…the volcano is your night-light! The restaurant is also to be commended for offering a variety of dishes featuring locally-sourced ingredients, creatively prepared…and a fine view of the caldera…as the sun sets, the volcano's glow appears in the distance. Staff were all professional and very friendly to us. Terrific breakfast buffet included an omelet station and plentiful tropical fruits. Guests are provided free wi-fi. Wish we'd had more time to try out riding the bikes around. Worth the expense as it's really a unique experience to stay.
