Absolutely epic hotel. Wonderful service by owners Sr Fred and Senora Donna and their staff. We spent time in a chalet family room - absolutely stunning views- wonderful garden and grounds. The lodge is approx 2 kim in through an epic entry way ( bring a car or have a driver bring you up to the lodge).. Absolutely wonderful service and a fantastic menu .. We also went horseback riding on property with an amazing view over all. 10 min from the mystic hanging bridges. Cant wait to be back. Great service from Natalia, front desk manager and the entire service restaurant staff as well. The rooms are rustic, cute with small bathroom and kitchenette ( microwave oven and coffee maker) . We would come back for the view, restaurant and service any day.

Amazing surroundings, nature walks, views of volcano and surroundings. Pool, breakfast with views, privacy, quiet in our family suite. Worth the winding uphill drive which we avoided doing at night.
