This sprawling Spanish-style residence, a hotel since 1973, is surrounded by beautiful, well-kept gardens and spectacular views of Villa de Leyva and the surrounding countryside. Guest rooms are standard, if not particularly impressive, though a splurge on one of the suites will get you a great view of the orange thatched roofs, unspoiled nature, and impressive mountains of Villa de Leyva. As most hotels in Villa de Leyva are rather small, the addition of convention facilities, a pool, and several restaurants seem almost out of place. The full-service spa is the most complete in the region, containing a Jacuzzi, gym, sauna, Turkish baths, and treatment rooms.
