Eco-colonial. The Dalton family’s ancestral home was transformed and enlarged with quality materials and great taste. Gurgling fountains, rugged stone walls and red adobe roofs lend historic charm.
Bed and Bath
The 20 spacious rooms (from 240 to 1,200 square feet) have high beam ceilings, tile floors, working fireplaces and king- or queensize beds fitted with Pratesi sheets and Guatemalan throws. The luxe bathrooms include his-and-hers sinks and antique-tiled showers. Spend mornings on the patio with a cup of the hotel’s coffee prepared with your in-room grinder and French press.
The menu at the stylish Pergaminos restaurant globe-trots with international cuisine. A quarter of the hotel’s land is dedicated to an ecological reserve perfect for outdoor activities, from hiking to mountain biking, jeep trips to mule rides. Also on-site is a gym and, of course, the coffee plantation, where you can join tasters sampling different blends.
In the Area
Take a tour of the resort’s working coffee plantation or explore it via mule ride. The surrounding mountain trails can be explored on foot or mountain bike. Filadelfia’s guides will take you birdwatching to try to spot some of the 170 different species found here. Or you can get up into the trees yourself with a zipline adventure. Be sure to spend at least a day exploring the 16th- and 17th-century churches, convents, monasteries and palaces of nearby Antigua, one of the Western Hemisphere’s best-preserved colonial cities. The city’s fine art galleries and street markets are among Central America’s best places to find locally produced textiles and crafts.
How to Get There
This place is amazing, the views, the nature, the weather, I’ve been to Italy couple of times and this place has nothing to envy
The food was exquisite, the service exceptional, the reason I didn’t give 5 starts is because I didn’t like their coffee it was too acidity
I was traveling with a coffee expert and she tells me it was because of the volcano grounds, or something like that, the so called expert seem to loved it
I guess is an acquire taste lol
Love place but no to stay just to go eat
I’ll definitely stay at Hotel Pensativo or Mil Flores Hotel and visit finca to eat
I took a group there for breakfast, It was fantastic. The food was very good, the service outstanding, the atmosphere is very comfortable, and views were all spectacular. Very reasonable prices too. Definitely worth it. We WILL go back.
Very interesting to or for all ages!
We started our tour out riding in an open truck to visit the nursery area. Here is where we learned a lot of information about the beginning of coffee how they planted take care of it. We next moved on to the sorting and roasting area and then 3rd to the tasting and of course there is a gift shop which sells all their products and more. All in all this was a very enjoyable to her well worth the money and everyone in our group and enjoyed themselves.
Took the opportunity to tour this beautiful plantation on a Crystal Cruise. Now I wish I could have stayed on this property for longer. The guide from the resort was informative and you will realize why good coffee is expensive. Beautiful grounds, both area AND coffee. Well worth taking a tour and delightful lunch with their delicious coffee. Antiqua is a delight surprise.
I very much enjoyed taking the coffee tour to learn the process of producing coffee from the plant to the package. It is a long difficult process to produce a pound of coffee and gourmet coffee is even more complicated. I want to return to take a bird watching tour they offer. Some of my friend experience their zip line which they seemed to love.
