We stayed at the Kioro for two nights (Aug 2,3). This hotel exceeded my expectations. The view of the volcano is magnificent (and, yes, you can see it, contrary to other reviews) when the clouds clear which they do generally midday. The hotel is seriously close to the base of the volcano. It is not on the side currently to view the lava flow, but the hotel itself completely makes up for this fact. The cascading hot springs and pool are in complete view of the volcano which is amazing. There is a poolside bar which will deliver you any drink or even lunch if you wish. The staff is very friendly and more than helpful.
The restaurant is clean and open-air, so if you are worried about bugs, this country is not the place for you, as most of the restaurants are like this. The dinner prices were a little high, but no more than you would pay in a moderate restaurant in the US.
We brought our 3 boys (ages 5,8,9) here and they loved it. The room had 3 beds and a hot tub with a pictureque view of the volcano. We would definitely go back!
