"Good hotel - only there for the night. We made sure to take advantage of the hot springs and mud bath that were included with the hotel, which was an added bonus for us."
"Instead of signing up for the full day tours which were pricey, we opted to take their in house " transportation ". What an experience! We rode a big old yellow school bus with the staff or all alone. We saw the park, waterfall, hot pools and the mud spa all in one day! It was a day to remember. Fantastic!"
