Salento 2022
Amazing hotel,. The room was big, although not much to hang up clothes, beautiful view on the mountains. Excellent breakfast, fresh. Very nice staff. The hotel proposed 2 activities (horse back riding with visit of coffee farm and 4x4 to go and see the wax palms in a valley different from Cocora, a lot of time in the 4x4 for 30 min visit, disappointing.

We loved staying here. We had a beautiful cabin with spectacular views. The staff was super nice and helpful. They organized our tour to Cocora Valley with a very nice an knowledgeable guide. And a tour to a coffee farm. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was one of the best meals we had in Colombia. I truly recommend staying here. Everyone is super nice. It is close to Salento yet far from noise and very peaceful. You will not regret staying here.

6/10 Good

Overall a good experience but there’s a few annoying caveats to this. 1 - Very complicated to get to the actual hotel. It’s up a dirt road outside Salento. We got there on a weekend and therefore the streets were so crowded that it was impossible for the taxi to get us there, so we had to walk about 1 km with our luggage up a muddy dirt road. Fun fact, the hotel actually has a private trail accessible from a Viewpoint in town that is only a 5 minute walk but they fail to mention this before you arrive. 2 - WhatsApp responses and follow-through on requests is poor. They offered to arrange a taxi for us from Pereira airport and after asking us for our flight info, they went completely silent and didn’t arrange a taxi at all. On the flip side, know that it’s fairly easy at the airport - just walk out and get on a secure taxi in the queue (cost is about 150 000 COP). 3 - Spa in room : we paid for a private cabin with a spa on the balcony. Surprise, it doesn’t work after 10 PM, and good luck to have it warm up in the morning. We could only enjoy it once during our two night stay. 4 - Welcome drinks : awesome, you get to the hotel after walking up the muddy trail and they offer you a drink while you check in. Well, surprise, it’s not free and you get charged as you check-out. They fail to mention it’s not offered by the hotel and also fail to mention the price. About 30 000 COP for two beers. 4 - breakfast : great food but you’ll still be hungry afterwards.
