A seriously beautiful, relaxing place to be. The rooms have a charming vibe to them with hot tubs, showers, big comfy beds and plenty storage space.
At the rear of the hotel is the bar/restaurant area leading to the pool. The food here is so so good, and shockingly reasonable....make sure you try the pork burger!
To top it all off once you've washed down the glorious food with a few traditional Colombian beers you can hit the pool. I had such a good time here and could have stayed for weeks longer!
Could not recommend this place more!
Cheers Fraser, for a great time!
