The hotel is actually a nice place to stay for a couple of days... Dont stay just for one night!! This place have nice facilities such as restaurant, hot springs and a couple of swimming pools. The surrounding nature make this a perfect place to step a side from the daily rush. Overall gardens, rooms and other facilities are good but the worst thing is the road to get there... nightmare!! You have to rent or have an off road or SUV car to feel that you will get to the hotel in one piece. Since there is no other options around to eat but to go to the restaurant beware it could be a little expensive, even thought the food is good.

We are extremely pleased to learn you enjoyed your stay.
To clarify about the road - its all paved until the final 15 km and the ride is part of the holiday, so try to come during the day. After turning off the main highway, the scenery begins to transform, leaving behind the dry hot Savannah. Climbing eastward, there are mountain ranges and large farms, then a large wind farm and then the rain forest. The residents mostly getting around on horseback. The dirt road is bumpy and having a vehicle with high clearance is recommended. You will have arrived at the north (Caribbean side) of Rincon de la Vieja, the only side of the volcano in the rain forest, with blue rivers,natural mineral hot springs and views of smoking volcano crater.
Once here, there is as much or little to keep occupied with as you want. Take dips into 5 pools - 3 natural mineral hot springs and 2 fresh water pools (and bullet water slide) - and the sparkling blue river, Rio Azul. Meander the Botanical Gardens with over 700 varietals, fish turtle and caiman ponds and the hummingbird sanctuary. Take a natural mud bath and sauna in the gardens. Visit the Butterfly Gardens. Kids love the miniature horses and donkeys and the many dogs. There is also the gym and Blue River Spa. Then set out on Eco-adventure tours into the jungle - Zip Lining and Tarzan Swing; Water Tubing; Horseback Riding to the Grand Waterfalls and the blue river Rio Penjamo; Rafting. There are romantic packages and tours that take longer, like snorkeling.
At the Tiki Bar and Restaurant we serve up a variety of local and American meals. In comparison to equivalent places, the prices are kept intentionally reasonable. Our chef Jorbis has been with us for many years and takes great pride preparing and listening to particular requests.
I hope this information has been helpful. Thanks again and we hope you return.
