“One of the best places we have stayed - ever”
Reviewed 27 August 2012

This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. I highly recommend it. It is beautiful cosy log cabins with a seperate bedroom and lounge area with kitchenette. Breakfast is served to your cabin. The staff couldnt be more helpful - Yenifer was amazing. We are so grateful for all our help - she truly went above and beyond. The location couldnt be better (30 seconds from the main street). The rooms are also very reasonably priced.

A collection of rustic timber log cabins, located just off the main street. A superb place to stay, as we could access the town easily, and really get a feel of the place.
Our cabin had character, and was very comfortable. Separate living area, small kitchen with gas cooktop, fridge, mini-bar, microwave, plates and cutlery. Separate bedroom had good storage. A large cupboard had had clothes hanging space and a safe. Bathroom was small, but practical.
Best feature was the heating. 5 wall mounted panel heaters ensured ideal temperature for every room.
Continental breakfast is delivered to your cabin at a pre-agreed time.
Friendly and helpful staff, helped make our stay here most enjoyable.
Highly recommended.

The chalet was roomy, clean and comfortable...but, above all, the heaters were working perfectly (I was there in the middle of the winter) and it was a pleasure to be warmed once back from the excursions.
Staff very welcoming, helpful and smiley - breakfast served to your door at the time you wish.
Extremely fair prices, excellent value for money really.
A small minus: wifi was not working well (perhaps because I have the furthest chalet from the reception - I had to go there to enjoy a reliable connection).

Loved the cabin, very cozy and the hotel is well located within walking distance from restaurants, shops. Follow the staff's recommendations of trips, tours and restaurants (La Pura Vida). We found them very good and not necessarily very touristic. The staff was always accomodating and knowledgable. Fresh croissants, juice, hot chocolate was delivered every morning to our cabin exactly at the requested time. We highly recommend it!!!!
