The Volcano Guest House is close to the park so very convienent. We liked the grounds, lots of plants, quiet. My husband, son and I stayed in The Cottage for two nights, it was very spacious. The rooms were clean but kind of old and worn out. The main bed in our house was very uncomfortable, it took a couple of hours for the kinks to work out in our backs in the mornings. It had a mold, dampness issue but its in a rainforest so some of that is expected. They do a lot of recycling so that was cool.
This place didn't seem really like a bed and breakfast. I expect to spend a little time with the owners at a B & B. The owners never introduced themselves, said hello at breakfast, offered help with restaurants or activities. Its not like were were looking for new friends or anything but at least acknowledge our presence. Its kind of how you are treated in a huge hotel but none of the hotel goodies like a pool, restaurant, and excercise room. The breakfast wasn't impressive. The baked goods were stale the first day and the leftovers showed again the second day, yuck. I was a little worried about how long the food had been left out.
