    Location with views from room is fabulous. Convenient having a restaurant and bar.

    Place is on the shabby side and room can be stuffy.

    The view of the volcano, however, could not see much due cloud cover. Breakfast was average.

    The rooms in this property are dated, no hot water in shower, poor lighting in bathroom. Did not stay for full duration, left after 2nd night. I would give this place 2.5 stars.

    Little pool which was not clean

    Bungalows had nice view of volcano except for the big cell tower. Rooms had no air conditioning so had to leave windows open with the town dogs nonstop barking. Restaurant was good.
