The place is beautiful and the service great. The food is 5 stars and gourmet. Good price. The suit is nice and tidy. If you enjoy cold enviroments this is your place. Also the town is beautiful you can walk and see colonial architecture.

The premises were very nice , many things to see for young children , the food was good but the service very poor. It seamed like the employees did not care , they were not attentive and had no urgency to resolve any errors. It felt like we're more of an inconvenience than guess.

a very nice hotel, maybe the best in Jardin; quiet, few people. We have a great view: trees, montains, forests, all near Hotel. You can walk surrounding area, pretty beatiful and walking to Jardin's park. Food is typical colombian, good, not fancy. It has a heated pool. I recommend it; for weekends, Make a reservation a month before. Generally, is... More

I have stayed at the Balandu many times, most recently in January 2016. I frequently visit while touring coffee growing areas nearby, sometimes with client groups. The Balandu is very popular with locals and Colombians visiting the popular and picturesque Jardin area, classic Antioquia countryside. The Balandu is really a holiday ranch style hotel very popular with families and holidaymakers... More

A beatiful place to relax, where you can bring the family and experience a life like living in a farm. Kids can milk the cows, pick up chickens eggs and go horse riding. Rooms are roomie with balcony and a hammock to relax. Just pack your bags and relax

This is the perfect place for couples, amazing landscapes, a place with the perfect temperature to be completely togheter. The food is good, sometimes not what you spect for price but is good. One lack is that the bathroom is old and sometimes the odors in it even it is clean are not good. It is near downtown you can... More

One would never expect to find something like this in this slightly remote part of Antioquia 3 hours away from Medellin. It is constructed primarily for Colombian travelers, but it is a good alternative for tourist travelers who want to combine relaxation with spectacular views and traditional regional inputs. There are many alternatives in nearby Jardin, but this is definitely... More

We understand that there is a lot of love for this hotel and earlier reviewer even compared it to some of the upscale resorts, well we thought differently. We picked this hotel after we had spend a night in town (at the Hotel Jardin) without much sleep. The hotel's location and its grounds are fantastic. All is well taken care... More

Jardin, Colombia is a hidden gem and Hacienda Balandu is the best hotel in town. We paid $90 for one room (2 people) and $45 for the other room (one person) with no meals on a Friday night. That was an excellent value. This is by far also the most expensive hotel in town. The hotel has nice traditional Colombian... More

We went up for a night with some family. Very reasonable price for such a nice place; a place like this would go for easily three times the rate in the US. Rooms were well laid out with balcony and hammock, great view of the countryside from the room. Bathroom had a beautiful stone shower. Breakfast was wonderful, and getting... More
