GREAT view , great food and better service. Really nice people. The Guadua Cabana totally recommended. The location is ok for most of the local attractions. It is really quiet at night, perfect for a good night of rest. They also sell the best own produced coffee.

After a long drive from the airport over very bumpy roads we arrived at the hotel which at first sight looked like a charming Hacienda / Finca. The staff were very friendly and offered us an isolated cottage in the woods which we declined in favour of a nice room with a balcony in the main block, which we thought... More

Spent 4 days here and thought it was merely OK, we thought it overpriced for what it is. Food was OK, room was good (we stayed in one of the Rustica rooms), wifi didn't reach our room but hey? Staff were nice even though we had only fairly basic Spanish, although they did turn out the lights and walk off... More

It took us an hour and a half to get from Armenia airport to the hotel- 50 km. We took a taxi to get there but it was the most expensive ride of all the hotels on the list. If you plan on going to Panaca, Salento, Cocora Valley etc the hotel is simply to far away. You will spend... More

Bosque de Saman is a holiday resort situated in some of the prettiest scenery in Colombia, right in the middle of the coffee growing region. The bedrooms are of a decent size although some of the bathrooms are small. Our group of 7 (three couples and a single lady) were allocated some of the better bedrooms. Some of the bathrooms... More

Beautiful place, nice landscapes, but terrible service. On the first day some problems related with the assignment of rooms; in the following days strong problems with the lunch and dinner. More than these issues, that in some way are acceptable situations, the real problem was the attitude of the owner: A lady that simply didn´t hear us and in a... More

This was our second visit to the Eje Cafetero. Initially, I was concerned about the location and some of the reviews. But I was pleasantly surprised. I went by myself with my 2 young daughters. I always felt safe and well attended. We stay in a room in the colonial section. It was quaint and large. It has an enclosed... More

Rustic, basic, but a gem. Extraordinarily beautiful countryside, lovely staff, including Marta, the owner who was warm and welcoming and kept an eye on things. Great to see an effort to protect the environment. The locals are proud of the coffee they produce and hand- pick! and their passion is catching. Loved learning about growing coffee, truly a labour of... More

Great location, coffee tour was fascinating. Rooms are very basic and rustic but clean and everything worked. Very little English spoken - but hey? Food was not good - feel like they are only just starting out on the tourist bit and haven't quite got the idea of catering yet - all 3 courses arrived together - no choice, no... More

Highly recommended. It was a good experience, the scene and experience make it worth it. A vacation in a coffee plantation, good for kids to enjoy the farm, make sure they will have the cows and animals available. Do the canopy and coffee tour in site. The bumpy road to the hotel needs maintenance, holes could damage your car. Meals... More
