This is an attractive establishment and I did not mind staying here for one night in July, but it is difficult to recommend without these warnings: 1.

Stayed at this hotel as part of a trip through the Paramo, Merida, and the Andes. The site is lovely, but a bit remote, in that you need transprotation to go anywhere other than this property. We were dropped off there and thus obliged to eat there or not at all. The first day the breakfast was a disaster, as... More
