Hotel Arboretto
Reviewed June 23, 2013

My name is Bert and we stayed 6 days/7 nights at the Arboretto Small resort in Villavisencio and have to agree with the comments/ratings expressed in all their posted reviews. I am a Bilingual Spanish/American Interpreter living in the region providing large and small personalized guided tours to visitors from every corner of the world. As a professional I have to say that our stay was nothing but enjoyable and relaxing. At one time there was a car playing loud music at the parking lot near the pool which drowned the music being listened by others at the pool. The owner right away approached the culprit and things went back to normal without delay! The staff was very tentative to all of our needs and made sure we were having a pleasant stay. For those whom are spoiled by the comfort of hot water back home, the only hot water was provided by the absorption of the heat of the in ground pipes during the day. Unlike other places we’ve stayed, this was the most relaxing and pleasant! It is nested in the rural area of town about a 10 minute drive on partially paved roads. This is the place to stay for complete relaxation away from any sign of civilization yet close enough to the city. I may be contacted at shutle1948@hotmail.com for additional information.

We were in Villavicencio as a transit point to another birdwatching destination. We were so glad that the town [busy and noisy] hotels were full because this place was a delight. The pool was good, birdwatching was good, the breakfast was good and the staff were extremely helpful. One of the most pleasant stays in 2 months in Colombia. Need a good map or in the know taxi to find it, coming into VV from Bogota [our 'professional' driver got lost even with the map he had].

Room Tip: There were 3 of us in a space that would have been fine for 4 or more if children, likely all cottag...

This hotel is nice, very quiet, you will love the quietness and the sounds of the animals at night, the pool is good, the place is quiet. Down side: there is not staff up all night, so you have to make arrangements if you planning to arrive late. Other than that, the rooms are modest, clean, the place have employees doing maintenance, so they keep the place in a good shape. this is a place to retreat and spend with family or your loved one, if you are planning to do activities in the city, you will have to call a cab, it will cost about 12000 COP (7 US), the road is in a bad shape, wich cab drivers hate, but not something that you can not live with. The hotel offers horse rides, that is fun, and they farm their own fish. Their dog is fun too. I would say it is a good value hotel.

Room Tip: Any room is good

Went for the midweek low season special of 40% off. Beautiful place and the owners were really nice and helpful. They took us with them to the market in the morning which was very nice and saved us a bunch of money! Also the food was the best that I have had on Colombia! Amazing steak!

The hotel campestre Arboretto is actually a small compound with eight very pleasant, convenient and well decorated cottages, a maloka style main building, a huge tree, a lot of lush vegetation, a beach volleyball field and a pool that is simply great for kids of all ages, as it gradually becomes deeper to one side. The cottages have two rooms plus two bathrooms each, plus a well equipped kitchenette and dining room, plus a terrace with hammock. The manager is very friendly and the food is excellent. It is approximately 20 minutes by taxi from the centre of town to get there (passing "multifamiliares centauros" and heading towards the club of the "odontólogos". Decent rates, especially in low season, which seems to be most of the time. Let's hope it stays well maintained - we'd love to come back at our next visit to Villavo.

Hotel campestre Arboretto is a very cozy hotel in Villavicencio. This hotel is small sized and family run. Hotel Arboretto has several nicely designed cabanas with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. The cabanas are of colonial design and at the veranda you can chill in the ample hammock. The staff of hotel Arboretto is the most helpful I have ever seen. If you lack or need something they are more than willing to help you. The refrigerator of each cabana is filled with cold drinks at prices it is not worthy to go to the local Exito. At the public area snacks and local dishes are served at more than reasonable prices. There is a large swimming pool and when there is not a puente (national holiday) you might have it for your own. If you plan to go to Villavicencio be sure you go to hotel Arboretto because it is the best option to really feel yourself a Llanero.

Room Tip: Cabana 1 is closest to the swimming pool
