We felt very welcomed and comfortable, and the owners were very informative about local activities, besides being very friendly and helpful. The room/bathroom were spacious and clean. Surrounded by trees and bird calls. Highly recommended.

The owners are a very kind family who welcomes you warmly and helps you with anything you need. Slightly outside town, in a very quite and green location surrounded by coffee plants, they have different types of rooms (and different rates!), from very basic to more high comfort. We had a great time there.
