I do not understand why this boutique hotel got a certificate of excellence. Our room was located on the ground floor facing the pool and close to the kitchen. The room had one small window, was poorly lit, and had very few outlets to plug in iPads and iPhones. Indeed, one had to unplug either lamps or tv to recharge...

My family and I rented the whole place out before my wedding which was at another hotel. The service, food and pool were all wonderful. Amazing location close to several bars and restaurants. We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves even though there was 24 hour staff present (2 super sweet ladies who cook and clean during...

I stayed here in October with a group of 7 guys. The house was HUGE! From the beginning the staff were super nice and welcoming. They always kept the entire place cleaned and cooked amazing breakfast for us every day. We stayed 3 nights and they were very trust worthy with our belongings. There was a butler there 24/7 as...

This was an amazing place and we had a spectacular time! The breakfast was amazing each morning, the place spacious, and very comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone! The only thing is I wanted the floors to be a bit more clean.

The place is amazing! The staff could not be more helpful! Its at a great part of the old city and everything is either walking distance or a short cab away. The Breakfast they cook in the morning is fantastic and a true taste of colombia!

Couldn't have had a better experience at a nicer property in a better city than the time we had here. I would recommend renting out the whole house with a group of friends, the only catch is you need to find someone to get married first. Cheers to Michael Krieg for making it all possible!

Our stay at Candil de los Santos was seriously top notch. The house itself was wonderfully maintained. The first floor is dream worthy - and was in many ways a vacation in and of itself. The staff at the house were wonderful. Super accommodating. Most notably was the delicious food prepared at the house by the staff. It was super...
