10/10 Exceptional

This place rocks. The little pool (there are 2) has the best view of the volcano that you could possibly find in all of Fortuna. We tested this out and can confirm. The grounds of this place look like a luxury resort in Polynesia or something. Stunning. Free buffet-style breakfast, two restaurants right there, and many restaurats just down the street. The staff are incredibly cheerful and accommodating. Our room was comfortable, had air conditioning if we wanted it, and our balcony looked out over the pool and volcano. I think all rooms' balconies have this.

8/10 Very Good

The property is amazing with beautiful views. Very worth the price, and wouldn’t definitely go back! The breakfast was delicious, only thing to note was the room could be cleaner and the bed wasn’t the comfiest (it’s also a double and not a queen). We really loved our stay in the bungalow and will hopefully be back one day.

6/10 Good

We didnt get any sleep becasue of the pillows. Maybe get some real pillows not some cotton stuffed in a small bag. The beds were fine but the pillows were like a joke.
