We stayed 2 nights at this Hotel. The Views from the rooms were fantastic. There is small beach right in front of the hotel. You do need to take a boat to Playa Grande from Tagana and you should only pay 6 or 7 mil pesos for 2 people. We did not know this and paid 25 mil pesos. When...

Super nice experience at Jaba Nibue. The rooms look amazing in a bungalow style! The stairs are a lot but it is worth the view in all the room. I loved the balcony and the sound of the nature. The guys working there are amazing and carry all the heavy lagguages up and down the stairs all day long. Well...

This place has a breathtaking location and the huts where you stay are super cool. I think overall the staff is really nice and helpful but the food at the restaurant sucks and is WAY overpriced. Additionally, the hotel allows the local boat drivers to rip off people staying there when it comes to catching a ride...which is more annoying...

We just finished our trip to Jaba Nibue. We thought that the location was great but the service was terrible. The staff is apathetic and the pool is always dirty, the rooms were not cleaned properly and there were bugs entering at night. It's sad because it could be an amazing place with the right management. It seems like they'll...

Very mixed opinions of this place. On the one hand, the views from the rooms are lovely, as are the rooms themselves. The location on the steep hillside is also great and quite unusual, so is the layout of the hotel; split over many levels connected with steps and walkways. But the prices by comparison to other hotels are far...

This is a unique hotel experience in a remote area of the Colombian coast. Accessible only by boat taxi from the small Colombian village of Taganga - near Santa Marta. On the plus side the view of the cove from the resort is absolutely stunning! The people at the resort are very hospitable. Hint - spend the extra $30/night for...

Perhaps the idea with which it was conceived was good, but definitely there is nothing Eco in this hotel. The product price relationship is very unbalanced, with this high price your service expectations are for a luxury hotel which this hotel is not able to deliver.

I can only repeat many of the reviews below. The views from the hotel are lovely overlooking the bay and evening sunsets. We had a suite with a jacuzzi shared with another room which was perfect for two lazy days at the end of our holiday. Comfortable beds and usual in-room amenities. When we stayed the hotel was empty. At...

The hotel is amazing, the view is incredible! you get to see the sunset from almost all the rooms. We stayed in a suite, great size with a shared jacuzzi and a balcony. Unfortunately the power plant was failing and we had no power for 2 nights in a row and sometimes during the day (imagine no A/C for the...

The hotel is nice, but the food prices are really high with not a lot of options,also the access to the hotel is limited because the boats from the hotel stops operating at 5:00 pm. The staff is very polite but I think that in order to charge for the amount that they are asking for a night, they should...
