Rustic, but the charm makes it fun and cozy
Everything was fine. Hotel is a touch more rustic than lead to believe initially, however the location is pretty much in the hills in the middle of a national park, so make sure this is the experience you are looking for. That being said, the staff is excellent, the rooms are cozy and clean, the food is good, you can get a beer, a coffee by the pool, go for a hike, adventure, or just sit on the veranda in front of your room. Something for everyone and it was enjoyable.

Loved it
Great hotel with great staff. Sebastian at Nekajui restaurant is one of the best servers we’ve encountered in years. Loved the easy access to the park and the hot springs. The spa experience was also wonderful. We will definitely return.

This is the only hotel that is inside the park. Nice set up, you have everything there without driving. Restaurants, bar, attractions. You will need a vehicle to see the attractions or have a tour.
