I Have been to many places around the world and it is hard to say I can compare anyplace to Hotel Chef Ricardo. A convenient location in the hearth of the tourism spot. Garaged Parking, rooms are absolutely stunning and staff Give us a royal treatment. food is great, the owner is a real gentleman. They saw us coming late to the place and asked us if we ate, then they prepared a late dinner for us. This feels like home and family. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!

My fiancee and I stayed a week at Hotel Chef Ricardo this month. As an American I found Villa de Leyva incredibly charming and this hotel is the perfect complement to the warm appeal of the colonial town. The room was immaculate, but the food was to die for. Chef Ricardo clearly prides himself on his top-of-line service. And the staff could not have been more helpful. They ensured my experience in Colombia was nothing shy of amazement. Hotel Chef Ricardo is part of what makes Villa de Leyva a cultural marvel. Will return soon!

Chef Ricardo and his team were the best people that helped us to plan and to make our wedding one of a kind in Villa de Leyva. Chef Ricardo helped us not only with the best food, but also was in charge of the staff that helped us for the celebration after the ceremony. He also helped us to find the location of the wedding. It was truly beautiful! He even helped us to find the transportation from Bogota for the guests that were coming from overseas. His staff is bilingual, my friends and my husband's family could communicate with the waiters with no problem ! Chef Ricardo has more than 20 years of experience managing events! Without him our wedding wouldn't be the best day of my life!!!
