Great hotel with extraordinary breakfast. Hostel is pretty chilled with breathtaking view. Perfect place to hang out after or before going to Medellin. Take the mountain biking tour recommended by the hostel, which brings you to a hidden water fall and San Raphael. The latter is a small town near by and is way less busy than Guatape which can be very crowded during the day due to day travellers from Medellin.
Wonderful must see and enjoy Daniela and Natali and everyone of the staff are wonderful The place is like a piece of heaven Price is right!!!! It is a true boutique stay, they have different rooms to fit the size of you group. You can walk to town and enjoy and amazing time. You can take a personal transportation moto taxi to get around town.
The view is just breathtaking and you thanks to terraces, big windows, hammock open air area you can enjoy it wherever you are. The rooms are very cosy, quite small but decorated with beautiful artistic touch, very clean as well. Stuff is super friendly and always there to help. Breakfast rich and tasty. Location great - walking distance to the town and a good starting point for walks around.
Make sure to get a room with a view of the lake. It's a must. The view from our room (Rosa) was just stunning. Looked right over the lake. The view from the reception room and where you have breakfast is also a fabulous view of the lake. Staying here, is like being on a mini retreat. It's peaceful, away from the town but just a short walk too from it all. There's a beautiful view of the rock on the walk down to the town. There's also private access to the lake on the property. The staff are nice and are helpful. Breakfast was excellent. They have different options depending on what day it is but if there's something you don't eat they will prepare scrambled eggs for you or give you different fruit etc. The rooms are quite tight with the sink not located in the bathroom but in a corner in the bedroom. The walls are thin too but they provide ear plugs and they really block everything out. The view of the lake trumps everything in any case!…
Loved being in Casa Encuentro, such a peaceful and quiet place where I could sleep so well and relax fully. Beautiful view, comfortable room, very clean premises, super friendly receptionist. Best option to get your batteries recharged.
