And then change everything !!!
Great location but the hotel has been build about 80 years ago and never updated .
Food is terrible as well.
Shame since the place is fantastic , especially the hot springs you can find in front as falls or very close by as hot pools .

Overall, the hotel is overpriced for what you get and the food is awful, but if you're just looking for a nice pool you're in luck.

The hotel is old, grimy and needs some renovations, fast!! The rooms are terrible. We were a small group and we reserved 2 rooms. Both rooms stunk of mold and mildew and had a 'stale' smell to them. We were able to see the room below us through the wooden planks on the floor!

In the late afternoon it starts getting cold, so after hiking or swimming we wanted to take nice hot showers. Well, we were out of luck. We asked a hotel employee if there was hot water in the rooms and he told us to run the shower for approx 15 minutes. Thirty minutes later, no hot water. On another occasion we asked a woman at the desk about hot water in the rooms. She told us to run the shower for 20 minutes. Forty five minutes later, no hot water. We felt as if they'd just told us to run the water for a while so we'd leave them alone and walk away.

The price you pay includes the meals. They're terrible!!!! Bring your own food!

However, there are two nice things I can say about the hotel. 1) The pool is phenomenal. It's super relaxing and the hotel also has mini-pools and a few jacuzzis. 2) The hotel has a daily hike which is included in the price. The hike is wonderful. You're able to see several waterfalls and some great views. It's a little steep with lots of climbing but that's what makes it fun and adventurous.

So overall, the pool and the hike are the highlights but the hotel and the food are awful. Oh, not to mention if you express any concerns or complaints to the manager or staff, don't expect them to care!

The place is very old, in very bad condition, mostly dedicated for low income class people. The people at the door gate are very rude, they want you to pay upfront for a place that is in total decay.

It is a shame that a source of thermal waters like this is the condition they want to keep it.

Wouldn't go again or recommend to anyone, very bad choice to do.

What you should do getting here is just relax...get into the steaming hot pool which is being fed by a vulcanic spring....buy a bottle of rum or aguardiente or a beer if preferred....and just start "being there". This is a place not to visit in a state of haste.
Important is making your reservations in good time, the best rooms will be sold very fast in advance and it's always busy, because all colombians know how to relax and do this on a regular basis. The rooms are simple and clean nothing fancy, but hey this is not a stay-in-your-room kind of hotel, you're gonna be outside most of the time....

Room Tip: Book the honeymoon special for the weekend.

The location is unique due to the thermal hot springs. The hotel offers privacy to pools not available at a nearby location. From Medellin, we took a nonStop bus, Flota Occidental, a 5hr luxury ride at 33,000 cop. We were adviseed intially to stay at Pereira as there were more options available. In hindsight, we could have taken a smaller bus nonstop to the town of Santa Rosa Cabal for 36,000 cop, and then a 15 minute taxi ride to this remote location tucked at the end of a valley. The hotel is a 50 year old wood structure with hotspring pool facilites, including a restaurant and pool side bar. The price is all inclusive.

We opted for a larger room with a balcony, referred to as an apartment on the second floor looking directly at the cascading waterfall. Though it appeared strange the hotel offers rooms without showers, we soon realized after lounging in the hot spring baths, it wasn't necessary to shower. The pools are extremely clean, pools drained daily and very relaxing.

The nature hike, more like a trek was invigorating and beautifully lined with waterfalls and hot springs. It takes you to a vista at 3k ft.

The food has significant room for improvement, but since this was not distinquished as an upscale spa, it was somewhat tolerable. A limited menu with barely a wine list. We recommend to bring your own provisions.

Take advantage of the low season that is celebrated on Colombia Valentines Day, in September, and North American Valentines Day, in February. They offer low season rates which made the lack of a decent restaurant acceptable.

The staff was friendly, good security, rooms adequate, but no hairdryers, so bring your own. The thermals will make up for anything that is lacking. You will leave completely relaxed and invigorated. Mark your calendar for September or February!

Room Tip: Best rates in September and February, book in advance

this hotel and beautiful location of naturally warm hot water pools give medicine like back and body relief instantly. stayed 3 nights in jan.2011. very secure and clean with all amenities needed on site. great value and met several people from all around the world, mostly backpackers.

if you have some sort of pain and body aches, i would highly recommend coming to the hotel termales of santa rosa de cabal in pereira colombia south america.

Room Tip: also try the national sausage (el chorizo) boiled and grilled with aguapanela juice with lemon.
