This hotel is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed in my life. It is a different kind of beautiful, because of the indoor/outdoor living, stunning views of the mountains, and Nina (residential dog-I swear she is half human)! The architecture of this hotel is stunning and the lush greenery makes it hard to ever want to leave your hammock and go explore elsewhere. The owner of the hotel is very nice, knowledgeable and although I was with my Spanish speaking friend, it was comforting to have a host that spoke English fluently (was able to be part of all the conversations!) The rooms were beautiful and had their own private entrances complete with hammocks and outdoor lighting. There is nothing to really see "in town" of La Cieba so staying up in the mountains will make your trip worth while.
I am giving four stars for 2 reasons. While the beauty of this place would not be complete without its location, it is also something we felt was not really emphasized enough to us when booking. This hotel is located very high in the mountains, along a dirt road. Pair this with the majority of vehicles that will be taking you directly to the villas, and it makes for a very scary experience. A regular taxi is not going to make it up the driveway. Luckily the owner of the hotel has a newer car with proper 4x4 axle, but nonetheless, it was scary and something we were not expecting. Try to arrive during the day and definitely communicate with the owner when you will be arriving. He will guide you and make sure you have proper transportation. The location of this was within distance from where tours commence as well so you don't need to make extra time for getting to these tours; its right down the way! As far as reason number 2, this family-owned hotel will cook for you but there is no restaurant where you can order food when you want. In fact, there is really not that much around. We were able to walk to a baleada stand, but they weren't really that good. Apparently there is another restaurant connected to another b+b, but we did not make it there.
Overall beautiful place, beautiful experience, and I would certainly come back here (hopefully with better weather). 100% recommend La Villa de Soledad!
