Worth the cost, but does have some quirks
Posted Jan 23, 2016 on Hotels
Finca Lerida is worth the splurge, but it has it's quirks. The hotel staff is super friendly and willing to help, but they don't always know what's going on. The hotel is beautiful with two person hammocks in front of each room that you can sit in to admire the beautiful garden and all of the birds it attracts. They have a good restaurant on site with a simple but sufficient breakfast included. The walls are thin, so hope you don't get loud people next door. We were in two rooms, one with a very hi-tech shower we unfortunately didn't get to use, but both bathrooms were very nice. They have impractical sinks and the toilet might run all night, but they look nice. The beds are comfortable, there are screens on half of the windows to let in the cool night air and they have black-out curtains. The in-room safe is large enough for a laptop. You can hike around the property (really cool) and they have a very thorough coffee tour for an additional cost, unfortunately no deal for hotel guests. There is wi-fi, but it's not secure. There is a bar with a fireplace, which was a nice place to relax. I only wish they had coffee available there for guests in the morning! Otherwise, Finca Lerida is located about 20 minutes outside of town up a winding road that typically has pedestrians to watch out for, but it's quiet, beautiful and peaceful.
