This place is brilliant as is its owner, Filip. The rooms are great, spiral shaped centred around the shower and having bathroom, bedroom and living room all adjacent. The open gate (no doors here!) open to a nice veranda with views on the mountains. The main building is even better with views over the mountains on one side and views... More

Great relaxing spot 15 mins up a very steep hill from the main road. 4 x 4 definitely needed but when you get there it is a lively little hide away. Watch a beautiful sunset and then bed down in luxury but out at one with nature. Plenty of bugs and birds forest noises to keep you company.

All previous reviews describe it well! Had a great time, very relaxing, delicious food, great scenery and well looked after. Loved being able to see a humming bird on its nest! A hire car took us there but the directions would have been easy to follow.

I have traveled all over the world and I have to say that Las Nubes was very difficult to leave. It's beautiful and peaceful, Filipe's food and company is superlative, and it offers the experience of sustainable living. Whether resting on the hammock outside the cabina, lazing in the Nirvana pool, or doing yoga on the deck, there is a... More

We recently spent 3 nights at Las Nubes and it was a remarkable place to stay. Philip and Augustin were incredible host. Philip is the owner and was with us the whole time, he is a self made person and an incredible host. He can cook up anything you want. And everything is fresh and organic and most of the... More

Dinner was also outstanding, and fairly priced - We saw a lot of animals in our stay. Bright colored frogs, a slug in the middle of the road, a family... More

Before deciding if you wish to spend time at Las Nubes, you have to ask yourself the question; 'what type of person am I?' If you are of the ilk that needs your creature comforts, such as air conditioning or wi-fi, or if you are afraid of insects and nature...then this isn't the place for you. You should look at...
