“Great organization of tours, simple clean rooms, good food”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

We were a group of 5 and originally booked 2 rooms but added a thirst since the hotel wasn't full. The rooms are very clean and simple. They don't have windows except the sliding glass door. They don't have A/C but do have fans... it isn't so hot that it's a problem.

The hotel handled all of our day trips and made last minute changes without issue. All the guides were on time and very friendly.

Not much English spoken (staff or guides, luckily we had a native speaker with us) but that adds to the charm a bit... definitely not a typical tourist destination.

The grounds of the hotel are stunning. We did have some mosquitoes in the evening so bring your spray.

The staff was professional if not overly warm. All our requests were easily handled.

Room Tip: We had rooms outside of the main building. I think these are probably quieter. From what I could t...

We could not have ask for a better experience than what we had at Los Girasoles. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. We will be back again as soon as possible. Food was very good. The view was fabulous. Way above our expectations. The parrots were a special added touch. It is a magical place.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room away from the main house and it was terrific.

Not a single disappointment the entire week we stayed here. In fact, just the opposite!The surroundings are stunningly beautiful with coffee fields and banana trees as far as the eye can see. Plus, the hotel itself is a real treat. Clean rooms, excellent food and superb service from an attentive staff. I will never, ever forget this place and hope to return to it very soon !

Room Tip: There are rooms in buildings away from the Main Hacienda that are quieter.

With a couple of kilometers to the nearest road, gorgeous gardens, nice pool and jacuzzi it is easy to recommend this pearl of a Finca Hotel close to Armenia. First of all, finding it is a piece of cake (unlike other destinations in Colombia), just follow the road signs to montenegro, and there will be an indication on the right hand side of the road. I believe there is about 1 to 1 1/2 km from the main road to the hotel, and there is no possibility of loosing yourself, it is all straight ahead.

We arrived without reservation and quite late - no problem. A very polite staff member helped us to the reception and we were greeted with.... a nice cup of coffee, of course ! We paid COP 130.000 for the room incl. tax and breakfast (dinner can be negotiated).

The room was very very nice, very clean, very nice bed clothes. There is no aircon, since none is really needed, but there is a ceiling fan. Also, big plus, also no bugs, flees, mosquitos of any kind. Bathroom was roomy, big shower. Was this all brand new and modern ? No. But it has it's own style that fits perfectly with the architecture. However, there IS a 32" flatscreen :-)

Breakfast is enjoyed outside on the terrasse with a spectacular view.

The staff was at all times very helpful, totally polite - all very family style. Thumbs up.

A word about the garden and surroundings: It is all kept at a level where you ask yourself, how do they do it without having 10 guys running around at all times ?! Simply fantastic... So relaxing... For kids, there is a solid-looking and amble playground, and even a small football field. Super clean pool and sun-tanning area.

To sum it up, this experience I will include in my top three in Colombia (lived here for 5 years). I really have a hard time thinking how to improve this place. It is perfect for couples or families that want to get away from it all and enjoy a true rest. For visitors to the Coffee Park it is perfect as well, just about a 20 minute drive.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room number 10 - It seems to be one of the roomiest. Worried about noise from the parki...
