Very nice hotel up in the mountains

Posted Mar 20, 2014
We only stayed one night. Restaurant was pricey for the amount of food. Grounds are beautiful. Room was large enough for a love seat or at least two chairs. Only had one chair to sit and very small end table. Bed was comfortable and the resort was very Tuscanny like! A bit far out/up over very winding two lane road. (Ever been on the Road to Hana in Maui - same thing) Would stay again though. El Valle is a beautiful town with everything you need on a day to day basis. Good value for the price on the room.

Gracious resort in a lovely setting

Posted Feb 12, 2014
Showed up on a Sunday afternoon so had the place almost to ourselves. Unique design with rock and concrete. Gardens and grounds spotless. Food in the many restaurants excellent and staff helpful. Just wanted to drink fruit drinks. By the pool.

Quiet retreat in beautiful El Valle

Posted Feb 4, 2014
Location: Zip line adventure, shopping at the central market, bird-watching tour, horse-back riding -- with warm days and cool nights.
Los Mandarinos is a quiet retreat from the busy main street of El Valle, located on the gentle slope of the north mountainside. It is like a small campus, with several buildings -- office, a main building with large rooms that surround a courtyard with a heated pool, a pub and a spa, all set on a fine grass lawn. There are four on-site eating options: (1) a new dinner restaurant where breakfast is also served, (2) the pub is handy and has good food, (3) drinks and made-to-order pizza served by the pool in the daytime, and (4) a fine dining restaurant with a lovely courtyard called Casa de Lourdes (may need reservations) that is less than 50 yards from the main hotel building. It’s about a 30 minute walk to the center of town, but you’ll probably want to use taxis, which cost only $3 to anywhere in town. The hotel staff was helpful and arranged for taxis, a bird-watching tour at the crack of dawn, horse-back riding (the horses are brought to the hotel), and a driver back to PC. There are also several large mercados for groceries or toiletries, etc., on the main street. Walking to the center of town is OK but will take about 30 minutes. Be careful -- we did not feel unsafe walking, but some cars drive fast and most of the roads other than the main street have deep ditches and no sidewalks. Also, it does get dark at night, so bring a flashlight. Cell phone service is good. Best wifi is near the pool. As always, take care with valuables and use the safe.
