This is a big hotel right on the eastern shores of Lake Sochagota. Apart from the gorgeous lake there are hills, plenty of nice places to walk to and it isn't that far from the town centre. It is however not a cheap hotel. You can choose to stay in a cabaña (bungalow) or in a standard bedroom. The cabañas... More

This hotel has great potential. The setting is beautiful. The design and architecture evoke the charm of the region. But everything goes downhill from there: - Unfair price-quality relationship: We paid about $350/night for a two bedroom bungalow. What did we get in return? Sloppy finishings in the bathroom; a bug in the shower; a dirty shower curtain; crappy towels;... More

We went to Paipa to enjoy the hot springs and we stayed at the Hacienda which is part of Sochagota. I have to say this is a gorgeous place!!! Full of color, traditions and history! We got massages which were great! Food was spectacular and people extremely friendly. Beds are comfty, rooms sparkly clean and whenever we needed something someone... More

We had wanted to stay in Hacienda del Salitre, but the management there moved us to the Hotel Sochagota - which was a very different sort of experience. It reminded me a bit of a sort of Soviet era hotel with its large thermal swimming pool, long corridors and impersonal dining room. We were told that Hacienda del Salitre was... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. I stopped by a couple of the other large hotels and didn't really like what I saw. Staff were attentive and showed initiative. Good internet connection. I had a great view overlooking the lake, I only say average because my night watching the sunset was ruined by one of a million latins blaring their... More

This is a decent hotel with cabins, and a good restaurant/bar. The main attraction of this location is the "lake", and the hotels property is right on the water. It features a marina to rent paddle boats, kayaks and sail boats. But unfortunately the lake amounts to a muddy pond and the town of Paipa is like most of the... More

Whenever my wife and I travel we always make a point to find the local thermal baths. I can tell you this was a great expereince for all, very kid... More

I just stayed in this hotel for a weekend with my husband. We have stayed in this hotel at least ten more times in the past, and we always come back for special occasions because it is nested in the heights of the Oriental mountain range in Colombia, which makes it uniquely scenic. The main attraction is the half-covered thermal-water... More
