Our favorite parts: The hot springs pools are naturally fed and heated with hot spring water, heated by the volcano....

This is a very large resort complex laid out in a grid, the gardens are immaculate and the place a haven for some fantastic bird watching. We...

Great rooms, great pool area, nice food and excellent tours on offer. It is really very hard to fault this hotel. The only negative maybe, is that without a vehicle you have nowhere else to eat, and so you have to eat in the expensive restuarant. Other than that, it's a very good place to stay.
