I absolutely loved everything about this lodge. The views must be the best in the world, volcanoes and lakes.....just beautiful!!! The staff were so friendly, the food was excellent. The rooms were luxurious but beautifully simple and had absolutely everything you could wish for, even a hot water bottle in the bed when you went back in the evening. When you return from trekking your muddy boots are removed and returned looking like new in the evening, everything was just perfect. You are made to feel like nothing is any trouble for the lovely helpful staff. I just wish I could have stayed a lot longer!!!
