10 of us spent 2 nights here during a tour through Colombia. The rooms were very nice, the food at the restaurant was good and the beer was cheap. The grounds are lovely with a large pond and a another little wet area near the community center. What we really liked was the setting along a small stream. The hotel has an intrepretive center for hummingbirds, a small butterfly conservatory and a forest walk with many tropical plants especially orchids.
The grounds are a good place to go bird watching especailly for hummingbirds which come to the feeders at the interpretive center which is located across the stream and up the river. Our guide was a wonderful young women naturalist who even though she didn't speak English was still able to communicate quite well.
If you are ever in Manizales and you love nature this is the place for you. It is only a short ride to downtown or the airport.
