My wife and I stayed here for one night in their "suite" for $150 a night and it was terrible. The bed was awful and the room was big but there was no furniture and the A/C barely worked. We only saw one staff member the whole time we were there (and she did not seem happy she was here...

This time stayed at the Pilón because the rest of my preferred rooms Cariguana, Gaital, Manigordo, Coatimundi were all occupied or in renovation.

This hidden gem is in a secluded section of the beautiful valley. Even the front driveway is serene, and your entire stay will be filled with lush tranquility. It is amazing that this is not the most popular hotel in the Valley. It must be that few people know of its existence. There is a small but friendly staff serving...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This well-known 8-bedroom Family Estate established by Avelina "Bilo" Gonzalez-Revilla, is one of the most breath-taking properties in all of El Valle. Recently converted to a Bed and Breakfast Resort, its expansive grounds allows for guests to wander the gardens and enjoy the unique collection of Flora. Its serenity intices you to basque by the swimming pool, bird watch, or nap in one of the many hammocks. Expansive RENOVATIONS were completed in April 2013. Each of the Guest Rooms have been standardized and equipped with Air Conditioners, ceiling fans, deluxe linens, down pillows, and duvets. Our staff is available to organize Adventure Tours in the valley, on-site Massages, visit the town's Zoo, world-famous Sunday Market, etc. All you need to do is ask.

“If you are a light sleeper get a room away from the large pond/garden area in the back. Lovely rooms, but the frogs are night owls. Stopped about 12:30am, but heard them again about 3:30am. Also check out the fan noise if you plan to use them. Ours were sleep disturbing.”
