Being almost twice as expensive as a booking in a 5-star hotel in Medellin, we were expecting at least a comparable service. This however, was not the case. Note: we are a Colombian couple. The good: nicely decorated room with a nice view The bad: Sparingly attentive and disorganized staff. Food was especially disappointing (3 dollar "corrientazo" for dinner and...

La montaña mágica exceeded my expectations. I stayed in the hobbit cottage which is absolutely beautiful and cozy! Breakfast, lunch and dinner are pretty good (for dinner and lunch there are 2 to 3 different options you can choose from and for breakfast you have a fruit bar with granola and the typical: eggs with arepa). Everything is very good!...

It was my second visit to “la Montaña Mágica”, and it was just fantastic, the plan that I always wanted to do with my special one. The plan is the “hobbit” is a special cabana as similar as possible to the houses in the shire, and because I am so freak and geek, I just loved it! Bilbo Baggins leaved...

We recently celebrated our wedding anniversary and stayed here for one night. My review will be mixed, because although the setting, and the room was amazing, there is a lot more that the managers can do to make this into a great place. It is set a few Kms from park Arvi, in Santa Elena, with magnificent views over the...

It's a hotel and spa far away of Medellin noise but quite close if you need to come back. There's a lot of activities that one can do in the place like the regulars one can find in another spa, but this one is in the countryside that brings another star to the stay. It's clean, the staff is incredibly...

My friend and I originally booked two nights but reduced it to one once we got a sense of the place. First, you should know not to trust the Google Maps placement of the hotel. It's not smack in the middle of Parque Arvi. It's a 3km walk. Second, it's not recommended that you go into the park without a...

I fell in love with the place the second I stepped in. Montaña Mágica is a beautiful and magical place to visit. I really liked the spa and massages. It's a nice place to go if you're looking for comfort+nature.

On the recommendation of some local friends in Bogota, we spent one night at La Montana Magica before flying out of Medellin. It's more or less on the way to the airport, which is a long jaunt from the city. It's a sort of holistic/ecolodge kind of place, but it features things like a spa, massages, and meditation. We didn't...

Spend a few days there with my wife. We did the long 6 hours spa. The spa was really relaxing with its mix of massage, chocolate therapy, relaxation and jacuzzi.
