Certificate of Excellence
Enchanting boutique hotel in the form of a colonial town from western Bolivia, hence the name. It has it's own central square with a chapel, lookouts and ruins. Surrounded with rural rooms and little houses, fully equipped for the enjoyment of our guests. A pool, a cemetery, excellent and personal service, fresh air, beautiful sights and a bunch of pets, from royal doves to dogs to cats to peacocks, complete the place. If you're looking for a spot to feel calm and peace, to relax, to snap things back together or to share with your loved ones, this is it. A place where you can feel tranquility and present again. A place to breathe, connect and disconnect, to walk, to watch. It truly feels as if you're stuck in time in a small village from a couple of centuries ago, when things were simpler.

Four of us just stayed one night. The rooms were lovely and the restaurant good. The staff were helpful and charming. The walk down to the town was nice. We stayed in Florista and Panaderia. Both rooms were great.

Ridiculous. The management clearly have no business sense whatsoever. My family of 15 went to eat at their restaurant (as we have done for years), only to be told at the front gate that we would not be allowed to take any photographs because we were not hotel guests. I told the porter that he couldn't very well stop me, so he declared that the hotel had a new policy of requiring non-hotel guests to pay 20bs (almost $3) PER PERSON for entrance to the restaurant. Needless to say I refused. Reverse this LUDICROUS policy now. How do you expect more helpful, free advertising (the sort that comes from Facebook and Instagram posts uploaded by restaurant guests) if you are CHARGING for it??

Hi Adrian, I can tell you have never been a guest at the hotel. Guests are the main reason we do this business and it is with that great business sense we have that we want to take care of them and respect their privacy. On holidays, given the amount of people who want to come over just to take photographs is way too many, we have to restringe the entrance for non-guests. Starting 2020, the hotel will only allow guests in the property. When you go to Disney, do you also refuse to pay for the entrance ticket because all you want is to eat and take pictures to make free publicity for them? We get so many visitors that say 3$ is a bargain to get inside and enjoy the place for all of the art around, gardens, views, pets, design... We have so many happily served guests that we don't need more Facebook nor Instagram posts. Actually, we want people to come over for the experience, not for the pictures and their personal social media accounts. I don't know if you have ever own a business before but maintaining one, it's infrastructure, hard working team... It takes a lot of resources. That's what you pay for at the entrance. It makes perfect sense if you actually stop 2 seconds to be empathetic with the guests and the people working at the place instead of starting a disrespectful rant. All the best vibes from our beautiful mountain, Adrian. May you find the peace and tranquility we like to provide for our guests.

We visit Cochabamba, Bolivia yearly for mission work. We stopped at this resort to eat while visiting Samaipata. This place was beautiful, the food was amazing and the people there were friendly. We were treated as if we were guest staying there for the week. I would definitely return.

Imagine having a Bolivian village all to yourself, complete with the village square, old church, etc. That;s El Pueblito. This place is absolutely beautiful and tranquil. The flowers/plants are beautiful and the animals (peacocks, etc.) add to the ambiance. Each room has a theme related to a building you'd find in a Bolivian village (my room was the bookstore). I have traveled to over 70 countries and stayed in hundreds of lodges/hotels; El Pueblito is on my top 10 list.The rooms were large and included a kitchen. The food in the restaurant was great! At night, the lights come on in the "village square" creating a beautiful and relaxing sight.
