“Colloquial and Folkloric”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2010

I found it beautiful, yeah kind of rough but still beautiful. Didn't find another so beautiful, charming and original. Amazing gardens and a lovely swimming pool that gives you peace and tranquility. If you like artistic and original stuff highly recommended. Well and if you go to Colombia go for the things you are not gonna find in your country and that are rarely colorful and folkloric.

Stayed July 2010, traveled with friends

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2008

I stayed here for two nights a couple of days ago, and having heard very good things about the hotel was rather disappointed. We stayed in a cabin in a field uphill from the main hotel complex so had no problems with noise, but the rooms were very basic and dilapidated. If you stay here be sure to check your shoes/bed/shower for scorpions as we saw quite a few of them, which was slightly worrying. The main hotel complex is charming, with little streams running alongside the paths and a large freshwater pool. The staff were unsmiling and unfriendly. Overall this is a cheap hotel with a fair bit of charm in a good location, but which is in need of an overhaul.

  • Liked — Rustic charm, nice pool
  • Disliked — Scorpions, general dilapidation

We chose this hotel because of its nice emplacement (in the outskirts of the village, gardens, far from the busy square) but...It turned out to be very noisy. You can hear people in the corridors, in the gardens
...One night we heard drunken guests arrive, ring the bell several times to be let in and turn up the music in their rooms.The second night at 1 am the same happened...but it turned out to be the bar of the hotel that decided to turn up the music to the maximum to greet some guests...

Next morning I spoke to the owner in the nicest tone saying I did not think the bar should play loud music in the middle of the night. He didn´t even let me finish what I had to say and was just so rude that even the receptionist was apologizing afterwards....(He even told me to stop opening my eyes because there was nothing he could do (whatever that means!!!!!!!) and that I was a nobody to scold him!!!!). Incredible!!!!!

All of this happened after we had to change rooms because in the first one there was no hot water...In both beds are hard and everythings has this weird, not clen smell....

  • Liked — There is a nice pool
  • Disliked — Employees and rooms

The hotel is set in an old mill on the edge of town. The location and the gardens are really beautiful but the buildings are very run down and in need of renovation.

There was interesting wildlife in the bedroom and bathroom (lots of strange insects and we also found a scorpion crawling across the ceiling). Our bedroom was fairly large (but very basic) but I noticed other bedrooms which were small and which only had windows overlooking the interior of the building so very dark. The beds were hard and the bed linen not great. The staff were scowling most of the time.

  • Liked — the gardens and the setting
  • Disliked — the insects in the bedroom and the dining room
