the worst experience in my life, manager Dora Julia called the cops to make me pay for a few drinks, on the 2nd day of my 3 days prepaid trip, then she kicked me out for no reason. same cops picked me up and keep in their station overnight, released in the morning and stole my passport, new cell phone and other property, I checked in the hospital with heart attack, hospital requested my passport and called the cops to deliver it, they did, but kept my other property, I hate hotel carretero, manizales cops and the manager Dora Julia who started that nightmare ! if you want a heart attack - book this sheet hole ASAP !!!

    We enjoyed the food and the buffet style meals. The views are lovely; the staff is kind, helpful and friendly. The location is excellent: one can walk to the Fundadores mall which has everything and also to downtown Manizales with its gorgeous cathedral and many other landmarks.
