We spent two nights at Casa Mojanda and enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms are actually separate buildings and very cozy. The room we used was heated by an oil-filled radiator and there was also a fireplace, in which the staff lit a fire while we were at dinner. The room was simply decorated and the beds were comfortable and warm. As Casa Mojanda is situated high above the town on a hillside, the nights were quiet and peaceful. Our room didn't have a telephone or television, which added to the feeling of tranquility. However, there is a televison and a extemely large collection of movies available in the main lodge.
The food was delicious and filling. We ate dinner and breakfast, (which is included in the price of the room) with the other guests at a large table, adding a sense of community and offered a chance to discuss each others adventures. The young couple who were acting managers were friendly and helpful and ate their meals with us. After a long day, I relaxed in an old fashioned hot tub with a wonderful view of the valley.
I have to admit the price for our family of four seemed high - over $200 a night with an additional Service and Sales Tax Charge of 22%, but the rooms are charged per person, so plan accordingly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Mojanda operates on the basis of a firm and ongoing commitment to the principles and practices of ecological tourism and contribution to the surrounding community. Casa Mojanda was designed to have a minimally intrusive impact on our local ecosystem and culture. We believe that ecotourism operations must at a minimum “do no harm,” and be sustainable socio-economically and environmentally, as well as harmonious with and actively supportive of indigenous traditions and cultures. When it comes to lodgings and resorts, we believe that small is beautiful. By keeping Casa Mojanda large in vision but small in scale, we are able to interact with our guests personally, and whenever there is interest, we will connect visitors with local schools, clinics and environmental projects. Each guest is a part of this ongoing process and your feedback and participation are most welcome. ... more less
