Our guide Christian was amazing. We did 2 trips with him. The view of the volcano and the animals was amazing.
- Large, spacious and clean rooms - Beautiful view from room - Awesome sunset view over lake from the restaurant deck and bar - Excellent birding opportunities - Great breakfast - Lots of nature trails - Colorful frogs at the frog pond - Highly recommend for nature lovers
Epic view from the restaurant to see the volcano!
The breakfast could have included more green vegetables.
The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. They helped us organize tours and transportation. One staff member went above and beyond to make sure we were able to join our tour after a miscommunication. The grounds are beautiful! There are trails on the property that make for an amazing independent hike. I really enjoyed my stay here!
Our stay was great!
Perhaps another restaurant to choose from.
