The grounds are large and lovely. Our room has a beautiful view out over a sweeping lawn, the pool and the valley and mountains beyond. The rooms seem to be mostly large and catering to families. Right outside our room are a couple of chairs, a table and a hammock. Quite nice for relaxing. Several activities are offered, and we... More

We paid for transportation through the hotel, and paid the driver an extra fee for the service of driving us through Pereira before our flight, which we had discussed with the front desk. While briefly visiting a plaza, the driver removed 6 bills of $20 for a... 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
