Good options for activities
Good options for activities. WiFi was not pretty good at the room. It is not the newest hotel, but it was ok.

Good For Families, Not For Honeymoons...
This property was unique, clean and the staff were very friendly, but it was definitely rustic and our bedroom walls were paper thin. The photos really gave me a different impression of the property, so when we arrived and were given a room facing a cement/corral area, it wasn't as dreamy as I imagined. They did have one room left that was offered (Legacy Suite) but it was an additional cost we hadn't budgeted for, so we opted to remain in our room with the bummer-view. Great for families that want convenient access to activities in Rincon de la Vieja - not exactly great for a honeymoon. The ability to hike to a few different waterfalls in the area was definitely a plus, and the pool was nice as well. I don't think we would return, however.
