We booked a villa for 4 days and 3 nights. We arrived at 11:30a on a Sunday and they claim no villas were available and checkin wasn't until 3 p.m. They didn't offer any other options (e.g.,other available rooms/villa) or service (e.g., luggage storage). We had a tour at 1pm and had to ask for a restroom to change clothes... More

The attention and looks of the place are really neat. The food on the other hand is an excellent culinary experience, from starters to main course amazing. Breathtaking view and excellent natural climate compliment perfectly with the ambiance of the place which is wonderful

The bar is nice and the view of the cliff and volcano is pretty great. Happy hour is from 5-9 and the drink and food deals were reasonable. The only issue is that the service is a bit slow but everyone is friendly. Would go back the next time we are here.

We were greeted with a warm welcome from the staff and Isbella. They were very attentive all evening. We were seated at 6:30PM and got our sides from the buffet. The medium cooked, tender, meat came right away and it was tasty. We met a number of wonderful people and had a great even. Thanks to everyone.

The houses at Los Molinos are obviously part of a real estate development for wealthier US retirees but the restaurant is still an awesome place to visit when you are in the area. The views are spectacular. A dip in the pool or play in the small play yard could be a nice break for the kids. The air-conditioned bar... More

The moment we entered the hotel there was beauty everywhere we looked. A stone pool which overlooked the canyon, the mountains and welcoming staff. An intimate space to visit the spa, a gym with huge windows towards the canyon, delicious food options and live music on special nights.
