We stayed here 2 nights during our 2 week trip, The rooms are fine but the block that we were in was right at the top of the resort and quite isolated. We utilized our tour bus to access the rooms. However the sunsets and sunrises were stunning and plenty of wildlife around. One of the group even reported a sighting of a Jaggerando (large cat) within the grounds.

We had a large junior suite with a nice view. There were many places in the room to store personal belongings. The room was clean but lighting at night very poor. The mattress was very hard for us and could have used a 3" foam topper for comfort. The included breakfast was good. Because the grounds are so hilly, shuttle services are provided at no charge. Staff was cordial.

Not a pleasant place to stay. It‚??s a vast site on a steep hillside site. You need a shuttle bus to get down to restaurant for breakfast ‚?? best part of a kilometre away. Vacuous, impersonal reception with cool attitude from staff - not welcoming at all. Also a $100 a night deposit was taken ‚?? not just a block on a credit card. Accommodation is in two storey blocks with no lifts and long, stone-paved outside and very dreary corridors. No ice machines in the blocks. Rooms are large and of... Read more

I think people giving this place a positive review must have been staying at a different place from me---- it was horrible Welcome at reception was very halfhearted, then had to ask for help to take our cases up to our room-- no help offered. Had to get minibus to room as it was in block 9, about half a mile up a very steep hill from reception. Blocks dark, with prison like feel. Room "deluxe " was big, with wonderful view, but that was it. Furniture consisted of 2beds, small table between, 2 ... Read more

This is a very large property and unless you are willing to walk 15 minutes each way (one way uphill), it is very inconvenient to go back and forth to your room. OUr room was 501, not the farthest from reception, but still a healthy walk. There are mini vans to take you back and forth without too much wait time, but we found it irritating.There are two restaurants on the property. We spent New Years Eve at Lagus, where they didn't have our reservation and we ended up receiving our main course... Read more

I have never seen such polarised views before and it is hard to imagine why this is happening. We arrived via the road from Tilaran, not to be recommended and probably better to go the long way round! Our two night stay was over the very busy period after New Year and the place was packed with several groups and we were somewhat apprehensive when we arrived. We parked our car at the reception level and checked in, this was efficient and friendly and we were given our room keys. We were in the... Read more

This hotel/hostel was seriously bad. It didn't look like it had been painted for 40 years. The room was cold, dark and there were small insects everywhere in the room even in our beds. We travelled on our own organised by Kyoni travel, Uk. We were amazed to find that a this was a. hotel used by back packers and b. by large travel groups. We asked to be moved to an other hotel but told that there were no other rooms in town. The only saving grace was the breakfast which was very good. Very polite... Read more

I had a room in the 800s and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room and facilities after reading some negative reviews on this website. The beds were insanely comfortable - best night of sleep I've gotten in a while despite having to wake up early for breakfast. Food was buffet-style and I appreciated the variety available. The views out of my window were incredibly beautiful and the layout of the rooms resulted in views for every room. I can't really speak to the quality o... Read more

Views of mountains down to Pacific are great. Almost everyone came on bus tours. Breakfast is poor and the tours flooded the place so there was nowhere to sit. Main restaurant is good but expensive. Rooms are large but basic. There must be better hotels

Stayed here for two nights as part of a tour. Rooms are in chalet like buildings with long, dark hallways. Something which made our tour group reference the hotel out of the Shining, it also did have an eerie silence. The rooms are massive, comfortable beds but nothing spectacular. The view is the best bit about the rooms, can see for miles and lots of different birds. It was also nice to watch clouds roll in and leave everything in a thick fog. We went to the pool once, also nothing spectacular... Read more
