We were lucky to arrive on working days. It was very quite and relaxing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were allowed a late checkout and they were willing to help us with all the questions that arise. The rooms are spacious, great terrace with a hammock. We lived in 'rustica' room. Thy the Canopy, which is the... More

We traveled through Colombia for 3 weeks for our honeymoon. This has been our favorite accomodation. We stayed two nights in the Cabanas, which are private and very romantic. They are built amongst the bamboo plants and have a jacuzzi outside. The wifi does not work in the Cabanas, but that is probably best for some true relaxation. We then... More

Friendly people, nice food, clean and comfortable rooms, close to Panaca and Parque del Cafe. I would recommend this hotel to anybody; it is safe, it has a few internal attractions like guided coffee production tour, milking the cows tour, ecological path (it is a nice walk around the farm), it has ziplines and walk over bridge 'kind of' cables...

El Bosque Del Saman is located in the middle of coffee country a little out off the beaten track but an interesting and beautiful drive. We stayed in one of the two cabanas for two nights. The semi-private cabanas are built out of bamboo and are located in the midst of a bamboo grove, set apart from the rest of... More

Sure, the place has its flaws. And they are many. But most of them get compensated by an excellent service, with super friendly people willing to help you in any way, making a very nice stay. I had read reviews on the quality of the meals. I must say that my first impression was not very good, with almost no... More

We were welcomed with a coffee cocktail, followed by a classic Colombian dinner, dressed as Colombians. Perfect atmosphere for families. The green aeras are wide and well taken care of, the views from most of the rooms are coffee fields. The hotel owns the biggest zipline circuit of Colombia and also produces its own coffee. The service is personal and... More
