Loved the decor and ambiance of the lobby. There are many local furnishings, high ceilings, lots of light, amazing views of the lake. Great location and staff! Rooms are clean and have modern furnishings as described on their website. Try to get a room with a view of the lake - worth a few pesos extra!

Great sized rooms and bathrooms, en site restaurant was splendid and lovely staff. They were especially helpful when I was ill. Couldn't have done more for me. Also, breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice.

Nice rooms, plenty space to relax, excellent food, welcoming staff what else to ask for? Really enjoying that place. The pool and sauna are small but never busy so it doesn't really matter, massage is excellent and prices for everythingare fair for the service.

I enjoyed the hotel. It was clean, modern, and comfortable. The included buffet breakfast gave enough variety so each morning you could have something different. The hotel is on a steep hill and the views of the lake and town below was an unexpected bonus. The hotel is little ways out of the downtown which was only 6 minutes away...
