"Don't bother! If you really have to stay choose the rooms over the chalets as they are in better (but not great) conditions"
"Rooms in the more recent part of the hotel are nicer."
"Choose rooms towards the back of the property nearer the volcano. But all are good."
"Stay in the cute bugalos. They are more spacious."
"Any of the cabin type lodgings have great views of the volcano."
