We liked the location - just outside of the city with beautiful grounds. We did have a car though, so we could drive everywhere. Without a car this location might not be ideal. We enjoyed the high ceilings and the overall atmosphere of this place. The staff was friendly and everything was clean and efficient. Our room was right next to the reception desk which was not ideal. This meant we had to keep our curtains drawn (the only window looked into the reception area) and of course the sound of staff setting up in the early morning is something to consider. The sound of the roadway is also something to consider - I actually found a white noise app to help us sleep through that. But overall, this place was really cute and we used the small pool and lounger, with a great view of the volcano. We spent two nights here for the purpose of exploring the area and this was a perfect location for that. Note, that if you're a fan of cream or real dairy in your coffee, you will be hard pressed to find it. They only offered a powder of something that isn't even dairy-based (a tasty breakfast is included). There were a few people smoking at the pool which was not our preference - not sure if this is something they permit. There was no ice machine, but they did get us ice from their freezer when asked (they just have little ice trays, so don't expect more than a cup full). They did let us put some of our items in the fridge, so they were very accommodating.
