To be honest, this place is perfect for a romantic getaway. That being said, I went on a girls trip with some friends and we had a great time. The property is beautiful and quiet. The food we had was fantastic! Fresh, simple, clean food with lots of flavor and delicious fresh juices to finish off the meal. We were...

What do you expect when you're going in such a kind of Eco-hotel on the beach of the Caribbean coast of Colombia? Just relax relax. Thinking nothing ! especially not what you have to eat and drink ! Here it's not possible. No flexibility. You have to order all your meals in advance at least 5 hours! No really what...

Merecumbe is off the beaten path, private and quiet and just what we needed. Their delicious generously portioned and carefully sourced food and juices were first rate. Quiet time on the private beach was also good for my soul. While the massage wasn't the same as my US massages, it was perfect in terms of location (open air, steps from...

The cabins are great, private garden with outside shower amazing! Stuff is very friendly. During our stay Tayrona Park was closed. As the Hotel does not offer much activities we were stuck in the hotel. An organized trip to Santa Marta for example as an option would have been great! Beach looks horrible, sea is dirty with high waves, so...

The staff and accommodation are wonderful plus the food is OK considering you have no option of eating out - things you should be aware of 1. The beach is horrible and the sea pretty unappealing to swim in (lots of weeds and brownish water). They try to make up for this with outdoor showers but could really do with...

Things didn't start very well when we arrived to find locked gates, but luckily one of the staff that was leaving let us in. The individual thatch-roof rooms are very nice with lovely outdoor bathrooms. The hotel grounds are beautifully kept and feature exotic plants such as heliconia and ginger flower. The open kitchen is spotless and the staff -...

This hotel was everything we expected and then some. Cabins are amazing; from the decoration to the amenities, lovely outside bathroom. Super clean and spacious. This hotel should really be marketed as a fallout location for Tayrona park, as it is only 15 minutes away with much better food and facilities than anything in the park. The food....ah! the food....incredible....

We started our 2 week honeymoon off here and it was wonderful. There's not much around in terms of towns but that's what we were looking for. The food was all great, as was the room. Do note that this isn't an ideal area to swim.

This review focuses on making a reservation with the Merecumbe and my dealings with its manager when trying to cancel the reservation. I made a booking with the Merecumbe in March for two nights in August. Due to circumstances beyond my control I have had to cancel the booking. I had paid $350 USD (cost of one night) as a...
