This hotel, when the volcano is visible, has a great view of the volcano and has a very aesthetically pleasing walkway to the rooms, with palm trees, flowers, a pond with fish along the way. I didn't make the booking so didn't know the cost, so cost excluded it was a nice place for those looking to get away from everyday life. They need to extend the WiFi range, have both bars working at the pools.
Pros: Two pools, each with great view of the volcano. Spacious 'chalet' cabins, three beds each (family of 5 could fit in one). Great breakfast food, nice bar. Didn't try the spa but it's supposedly good.
Cons: Weak WiFi connection from room (need to be by restaurant/lobby to get any strength). Weak shower head. unattended/non-functioning bars at either pool. No glass cups/ice machines available. Staff was alright, could have been friendlier. No computers to access. There were light switches outside, so technically a stranger could walk to your cabin and turn on the main light from outside..weird
