We are a retired couple from Devon, Alberta, Canada. We recently spent 28 days at Hotel Mango Valley, for our annual winter escape. We arrived only a couple of weeks after Jose and Maite took over operation of the hotel. We found the whole experience to be most agreeable. Jose and Maite were the greatest of hosts, willing to go any length for our comfort and convenience. We feel like we have another family now. The hotel itsself is in a most charming location, and is clean and comfortable. The high altitiude of the locaion provides warm sunny days and cool evenings, great for comfort and relaxation. The views are stunning, and the humming birds were busy every day for our entertainment. Being about seven kilometers from town, (Grecia), we had occasion to use the bus service frequently. It is reliable and inexpensive, and we found no need to have a vehicle. The tours offered by the staff are excellent, covering all the attractions in the central valley area. Since there are no more than four people on a tour, it is very personal, and the staff are very knowlegable about the area and the various attractions. We had the opportunity to meet many of the local people, including hotel staff members Nuriya and Javier, and found them to be most gracious and welcoming. They must be among the happiest people in the world, as we did not see a single incident of conflict or anger in our time there. The town offers all kinds of shopping and good restaurants, and the Villa Cipreses, about half a kilometre up the mountain from the hotel, was an excellent place to dine, although only open Friday through Sunday each week. If you can leave your North American attitudes at home, and just relax and go with the flow, I give this hotel my top recommendation.
