Hotel Sueno Dorado & Hot Springs
Reviewed 25 February 2017 via mobile

Ummm well we heard about this place on Facebook. The pictures the have on there are very deceiving as they show a lot of pictures of the water park Kalambu. The prices are decent for what you get.

Positives
Rooms can fit a lot of people
They have there own hot springs
Close distance to Kalambu and Baldi
Beautiful view of the Volcano
Beds are okay

Negatives
Rooms need to be renovated (And I don't think it was just our room because we had 4 rooms in total)
Far away from town
The hot water in the room didn't work and lights were burnt out

Overall the place is good. I didn't find the staff as "accommodating" as other people write in their reviews.

Stayed: January 2017, travelled with family

If you want to check out all the fancy hot springs / bars, this place is walking distance. They serve traditional rice and beans breakfast or American styled eggs and such. It's quaint, decent air, clean, and the on premises hot springs aren't warm enough to overcome the rain. But Baldi is walking distance.

At $150 / night, it's not a budget deal, but the service and cleanliness is nice. Housekeeping actually washed our clothes for us.

Great location, good service, OK price.
