My friend and I arrived in Samaipata from Santa Cruz. We booked Lo Pasada last minute and thankfully there was room. We were very impressed on arrival. The restaurant food was very yummy (we ate here every night of our stay as a result. It was also the bed food we had eaten so far in the 2 weeks we... More

My sister and I visited Samaipata and chose La Posada del Sol for its proximity to the town centre. However, after a quick tour of the plaza and a so-so meal in another restaurant we returned to La Posada and didn't leave until our stay was over. The staff were amazing, well trained by the owners and happy to serve... More

We stayed in Posada de Sol over carnival weekend and found the location perfect - 5 minutes walk to the centre of Samaipata but away from the noise, plus it had lovely views of the mountains. Our toddler loved the large green garden and we loved the food, atmosphere and cocktails in the little restaurant. Our room was clean and... More

We visited the restaurant of Posada del Sol twice within one week. Without any doubt this is the best food in Samaipata! A great and cosy place to eat, interesting dishes (different from what you get elsewhere in Bolivia) and great service! For sure we will be back and try more of their big menu. Until then we suggest the... More

Misled by the positive reviews on trip advisor, we booked two night at La Posada with little hesitation. However, our stay turned out to be a huge let down and an indication of how a nice initiative can be turned into a profit seeking entreprise, at the cost of good service and hospitality. 1- We booked a room with shared...

We are so sorry to hear that you had such a bad experience! However, we would like to point out some details. 1. We know of no hotels in Bolivia that are not “profit making enterprises” We are extremely dedicated to good service and hospitalty as mentioned in the reviews that "misled" you 2. You were advised when you made... More

I'm an American who's living in Santa Cruz. I love going to La Posada del Sol in Samaipata for the weekend! Trent and his wife run a great location. Great rooms, beautifully landscaped yard to relax in, a restaurant with GREAT food (think tex-mex/Bolivian fusion), and most of all staff that treats you like the family you always wanted!!! A...

My family and I live in Santa Cruz and we have stayed at La Posada del Sol 6 times bringing friends and family to enjoy this gem. Only 2,5 hours from Santa Cruz makes this the perfect weekend get away for us. The friendly and attentive staff go out of their way to make us feel welcome and our two... More

This place has a beautiful garden and good prices. However, we didn't get a particularly friendly vibe at times. There's a warning that you mustn't do your own washing despite there being a sink outside our room. You have to use their laundry service or risk losing your clothes. The food isn't bad but the constant pinging of the microwave... More

Thank you so much for your comments. It seemed that you enjoyed your stay but had some concerns. So let me address them 1 by 1. 1.Years ago we allowed clients to do their laundry, but after some client's items disappeared, most likely taken by mistake by other clients we were forced to stop offering that service especially when some...
