The property is small but lovely. Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. It's away from the noise of the town. The staff is very attentive and friendly. If it had not rained we would have been happy with the hotel. It began raining in the evening of our arrival. By 11:00 pm water was seeping up through the floorboards of our room although we were on the second floor. Ants came into the room to escape the water and covered our towels and the wall in the bathroom and behind the beds. We moved to an adjoining room but that room had a leak in the ceiling that dripped onto the bed. It was midnight so we not move again but left the hotel the next day although the room was paid through that night also. The hotel has a few other idiosyncrasies. There is no mirror in the bathroom to shave. There was no internet at any time. If you want to eat in the restaurant you have to tell them the day before and agree to the menu that is being served. We agreed on a 9:00 am breakfast but weren't served until 10:00 because that's when a larger family group showed up to eat. This could be a wonderful place. It needs work.

I appreciate your comments are very objective and we are working to make people more efficient. In the middle of the jungle it is difficult to find suitable staff but what really vrnddmis is the place. Thank you very much !

The place is beautiful, surrounded by nature, and the manager makes you feel at home from the beginning! Breakfast is simply delicious, and the tours they offer are really a must, the surroundings are amazing! The lake view from any of the rooms is beautiful...Highly recommended!!

We spent the new year's eve at this hotel and the ceremony of temazcal and the bathing ritual afterwards was extremely invigorating and cleansing, one of the best temazcal ceremonies I have ever attended. The area surrounding the hotel is one of the most beautiful in Mexico and the owners are very nice, but the hotel itself is quite modest and functional. I was not very comfortable in the room, the walls are thin and the noise from the other rooms travels easily, the bed was also not very condusive to good sleeping. The food is quite regular and there are not many options available around the hotel. Overall good value for money but things can be better.

I wanted to come to this place for a while so my expectations were high. We were picked up by our driver in Mexico City and drove about 6 hrs into Veracruz. We chose this route because we were looking for an adventure. The drive although long was great because we got to enjoy espectacular views as we drove through the mountains. At one point it felt like we were so high up that we could touch the clouds. When we finally made it into the hotel, the staff showed us the room where we were going to stay for the weekend. The place was cozy, clean, rustic, and spacious. The view was spectacular but the magic started when it got dark because the green lawn that view the lake was covered with fire flies creating a net of light. The whole weekend was packed with activities: jogging in the morning, then kayaking (here is were I finally got a nice tan!) then dinner at the beach. Water was warm and soothing and food was delicious and healthy (fresh seafood since we were in the Golf). Next morning after yoga at the pier and a healthy breakfast (papaya, organic eggs, toast, tea) we drove to the water falls through the rain forest then hiked to get into Velo de Novia (bride's veil) and then into Poza Reina (queen's pool?) close by. We took plenty of pictures of such beautiful and refreshing place. On the way back we made a deviation into Catemaco for an icrecream and enjoyed a typical dance by the local in the plaza. At night we prepared for the Temazcal which I was so looking forward to enjoy. The Temazcal area was perfumed with incense, candle light, relaxing music, etc. We bathed in clay then proceeded to go to the sauna, meditated, then finished it with a Nacimiento de Agua (clearwater coming from the mountain) bath...soo cold that made me scream...ok, I was the only one screaming everybody else seemed to enjoy the cool water. The next day we were prepared to head back to Mexico City...but we had to make a stop in Puebla to enjoy some Mole Poblano right from the source. mmmh! Overall this place is a gift from nature. Come prepared with mosquito repellent as it is the only thing I didn't enjoy. If in NYC I'll stay at the Ritz, but here my expectations were absolutely met! Thank you, I am definitely coming back!

It is well hidden in the other side of the Lake of Catemaco. It has the most wonderful view and if you like nature you'll love this place. The people are very kind and this place is kind of hollistic but not leaving out the fun for wild sports like bike, atv's in the jungle, waterski, fishing and hiking. There beautiful cascades nearby and the beach is twenty minutes from here. There are also hikes to see wild birds for bird lovers because all migrating birds stop here during the winter. All Bedrooms are comfartable but you won't want to be there, because the town is very nce and full of magicians or wizards and the folklore is interesting.
Thanks I had a graet time.

A little hotel in the middle of the rain forest of Mexico where we practice meditation and soul cleaning. It's a rustic but comfortable hotel, air conditioned and overlooking Lake Catemaco. Being in the jungle, More moisture and small insects are part of this nature. It is a magical place where the mind and body sensitize its natural origins and a very pleasant relaxation is obtained. And for people who love being in touch with soul force, is a space to see shine the mystique of the divinity and know what position this spiritual hierarchy, people who have the pleasure of working here. Everything that we do, do it with all love to give someone, we are pleased to be the conduit to provide lodging, food, a tour, a temazcal, a smile full of our best efforts in the energy of love. Gladly waited on Prashanti which means in Sanskrit "The place of supreme peace." Less
