We stayed here since the other hotels were booked. It's abit far from town but its also close to the cloud forest . We walked from the hotel to the sanctuary it took about 30-40 min. Also there is an Italian restaurant called trimonti about 10 min wall from the hotel which was very good.
We asked for a free upgrade to the junior suites which they did free of charge for us.
The hotel restaurant is not good. We had lunch and breakfast there. We did not care for it. But sometimes you don't have many options.
When we were there they were doing maintenance on the pool so we did not use the pool or the jacuzzi. But would have since there is only wifi in the common areas of the hotel.
The beds were comfy and the rooms were large. I would recommend the place for families. For the price we paid I think it's a fair place. But we wished we stayed closer to town.
Friendly staff at reception spoke English and recommended tours and places to eat.
