“Beautiful place”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This is a very good hotel in a wonderful setting. We have stayed 2 nights there. The rooms was well appointed. They have rooms and also small houses with two bedrooms to accomodate families.
A nice detail in the room was to find in the minibar a small botle of a good sparkling wine among other drinks. We found it to be a good idea to be able to have have the sparkling wine in this nice setting. It is not free, but the price is affordable.
There are two golf courses. One which they say it is 18 wholes, but it looked more like an 9th whole. In this course you pay for playing. The pro is very friendly. They even have golf carts.
The other golf course is just a small 6 wholes pitch and putt course. It is free of charge.
Internet conection is slow, but you might be able to send and receive mails.
Food at the restaurant was just OK. A Silpancho (typical Bolivian dish) did not meet the expectations. Another dish, the rissotto was undercooked. Personal were friendly though.
Management appeared not to be there at the time of our stay. Overall you got the feeling that a management function was lacking. With better food and management, we would have rated this place as excellent.

This is a fantastic place to go and a short drive from Santa Cruz, I stayed in the small "cabanas" and not the main Hotel, I felt it was much better and private. We played golf and went on nature walks with a guide, unfortunately they only had one horse and we were four people. It's so easy to just imagine thousands of years ago how this place was habited by dinosaurs it's definitely a place in which you can transport yourself and see that not much in the nature around has changed, untouched paradise!

Excellent hotel in beautiful setting. A 4x4 is really needed for the steep bumpy approach road although normal cars do make it. Well worth a visit for enjoying this unique location. This was our second visit and won't be the last! The climate here is cooler than Santa Cruz ; just right for relaxing in the sun!

This place doesn’t quite fit the mold for a typical luxury resort, but it is well worth a try if you are looking for something a little different. A bumpy, two-hour drive from Santa Cruz brings you to a steep dirt track, which snakes up a red mountain. At the top of the mountain you’ll find the hotel, which is nestled between more mountains and in front of a picturesque lake. We stayed in one of the cabanas – delightful huts with glass walls, air conditioning, two rooms and a jacuzzi. The location is simply stunning: it really looks like the pictures on the website, and the small capacity and remote location means that it’s unlikely to be crowded. Food was mixed, we had some great meals and some not-so-great. It’s worth reminding international travelers that Bolivia is a poor country that’s not known as a culinary destination – come here for the beautiful country and warm people rather than the exquisite food. The surrounding areas offer ample opportunity for adventure; we explored the ruins of El Fuerte, enjoyed lunch in Samaipata and jumped in beautiful waterfalls. Overall, I can’t recommend this place highly enough. The modest service won’t compete with luxury offerings in more developed countries, but the friendly staff worked hard to enhance our stay in this breathtaking and unique place.

Room Tip: The cabanas are wonderfully private

This is NOT a hotel to consider as a place to stay while in Santa Cruz. For starters, it is two hours of bad (sometimes spectacularly bad) roads outside the city. Instead, it needs to be considered as a destination in and of itself. It is tucked away in a fantastically beautiful red-walled canyon in the foothills of the Andes in (or near) Bermejo. Bolivia. It is a location to die for, every bit as glorious as it looks in the website pictures, with a duck-filled lake, magnificent pool, and what must be the world's most challenging seven hole pitch-and-putt golf course, reminiscent of those humorous posters that showed people playing golf atop a high-rise building. (Instead of a rough, the course, which is being expanded, is edged with vertiginous drop-offs from which no ball is ever likely to be recovered.) For non-golfers, there is hiking, swimming, some nearby attractions, and a mangy, unlined grass tennis court. But this is a place one goes to just to be there, not necessarily to do anything. It's other-worldly. My 12-year-old daughter thought it looked like a landing base and headquarters for extraterrestrrials, possibly still in use. Indeed, she noted that you can see what must be their architectural carvings in the red cliffs. On the down side it is so ineptly run that it is hard to make a resevation. Phones aren't answered. E-mails bounce back. Persistence and patience are required. But if you can get someone on the phone, and negotiate the heart-stopping access road, it's like finding a piece of Heaven. The staff is courteous and attentive (once you get there). The ambitious nouvelle cuisine menu offers pretty fine dining (though one wonders if they might do better by sticking to a few exquisitely done specialties.) The newly constructed rooms and cabanas are fully amenitized and very comfortable, all offering great views. And it's not crowded. The facility was operating at less than half capacity the weekend we were there (which admittedly started out chilly and cloudy). And the prices are reasonable. Our advice: rush up to experience this uniquely beautiful resort -- before it gets discovered or goes out of business. -- David Boldt, Santa Cruz, Bolivia
