The Hacienda is really nice. The rooms are clean and the bed is comfortable. The view is amazing. The coffee tour is so informative. Everything is well explained. You can even pick some coffee cherries. The food is delicious and not expensive. You get a whole menu for a reasonable price. Everybody on the Hacienda is really nice and helpful and they made the trip even more special. It is worth the trip.
We were a group four staying at Hacienda Guayabal for three nights in one of the cabins. We had a wonderful time in the cabin and in the beautiful property. From the moment we arrived, we were amazed at the beauty and peacefulness around us. We spent some of our first afternoon just reading on the balcony overlooking the mountains. The only problem we had was deciding on how to divide our time on the hammock. Jorge and his family running the hotel and restaurant were very professional and the place was very well run. The food was great and the staff were very attentive and kind. Jorge helped us find transportation and worked with us every step of the way to make our stay very memorable. We did the coffee tour with Phillipe and it was really interesting. He had so much knowledge and passion for the coffee and process at Hacienda Guayabal. Our group would stay here again if we find ourselves in Chinchina again.…
Very nice place, beautiful nature and quiet - Friendly people - very hospitable - explanation about coffee & plantation - a lot of birds for ex hummingbirds - you can visit only for make a tour through the plantation or you can also sleep there
Beautiful family farm three generations strong. I spent three nights, a reprieve from the busy pueblo’s having traveled through Aguadas, Salimina and Manizales. Tranquil setting albeit active and alive with coffee harvest in full swing. Warm inviting and ever accommodating staff and family that grace this working coffee farm. Hector invited me to observe the caferero’s day’s harvest weigh in. Unforgettable! What a kind and hospitable family! Jorge, Dona Maria Theresa, young Juan and his Madre, (whose name escapes me) were all so genuinely welcoming and down to earth. Pelo kept me smiling and laughing and overfed despite my preposterous dietary restrictions. Forever ensuring I’d a coffee or tea or water. Felipe gave the most thorough, detailed coffee tour imaginable. Indeed an educator. Nice relaxing room with lovey decks to choose from. Farm walks through resplendent, verdant trail bursting forth God’s priceless, precious Columbian coffee beans. 3 nights, professional coffee tour, breakfast, lunch, dinner with innumerable coffees, teas, juices and heartfelt hospitality for 149.00 USD. DIG THAT! If only for the tour and lunch a worthy choice.…
We (two travelers) visited Hacienda during harvest season in October. We have been only visitors so we got our own private tour with Felipe (hope to spell his name right). His knowledges were outstanding! Nothing he wouldn't know about coffee. Our tour finished with tasty 3 course lunch which was also very delicious. If you love coffee, make sure you visit this super friendly and family farm! You won't regret :-)
Highly recomended. The owner Jorge was excelent host, very knowlegeble and friendly. Ricardo was our guide, he is excelent, the entire tour took aprox 3 hours, we did learn all about coffee ( production, washing, drying, threshing) finally it was grind, brew and taste a very fresh cup of coffee from Colombia. We enjoyed a delicious lunch, tour and lunch U$ 25 per person. The Hacienda has accomodation, great option to enjoy, it has a the beatiful view, relax escenery. Our driver Miguel is very accomodating, took us all around in Manizales and Pereira. He is a great person who picked up us from the airport and stayed with us all the time during the week ( cel + 57 315 411 9616).
We stayed for one peaceful night here and loved it. Arriving at lunch time we had a simple but tasty three courses (veggie options available) and a nice afternoon relaxing by the pool watching the hummingbirds. Took a walk at sunset to the viewpoint accompanied by the dogs and took in the great views. Dinner was nice and after a couple of wines and beers we wound down early for a food sleep. This is a working coffee farm so don’t expect it to be a fancy hotel - for us this was a positive as we could take our time and relax while watching the goings on of the farm. In the morning we did the coffee tour which was brilliant - I’m not much of a coffee drinker but really enjoyed the tour which also taught us plenty about history, economics and culture. A great place for a relaxing night.…
The place is very hospitable all the family was taking care of all of us perfectly well. We visited with 3 boys and we all loved it. The rooms and the whole property perfectly clean, food delicious, surroundings beautiful, the COFFEE trip was also very informative and really interesting, so much fun for us and the kids. We heartedly recommend for everybody. We planned to stay 2 nights and stayed 4. Fantastic place with a soul.
Where to start to review the Hacienda Guayabal. Nestled in the foothills of the Andes, the hacienda is a haven of peace. During our stay we did feel like going anywhere and chose to spend our days, enjoying the view, the sounds of the many birds living there, and walk the hills. The family who owns the place is simply adorable. For Yoga and meditation lovers, it is a perfect place especially the terrace of the house we stayed in. I am already planning another trip there
Beautiful views! I stayed overnight in the main house. Staff were friendly and food was generally excellent, although I wasn't a huge fan of the dessert. But that's a small matter and didn't impact my stay. Jorge was great in providing details on how to get to the Hacienda and arranged transport back to Chinchina and Medellin which was amazing as my Spanish skills are still lacklustre. The tour is worthwhile on its own and you can easily do this alone if you are nearby. Very informative, coffee was amazing and you can't help but be spellbound by the views and the freshness of the air. Highly recommend as part of a broader trip in the coffee region. I came in from Salento.
