I Love the Aura Soma Hotel. The staff are friendly, the rooms clean and the beds are comfortable. The private pool is just around the corner and on their property. Loved my stay. And I'll go back again.

I review the facility as a customer. You would have to check with Aura Soma Lava to have them answer those questions. They did have wifi, TV and VCR in our room.
