My husband and I were looking for a place to relax near Parque Tayrona after spending two days there. This was it! Our room had hot water, a giant bathtub, and the location was so quiet and peaceful. Excellent place to take it easy after 2 days hiking and swimming at the beach. Excellent value for the price as well.

They greet you with a smile and that's exactly what you want after Ciudad Perdida. For us, this was a perfect stay. The staff was really friendly, spoke several languages and helped us in every way. With no more cash left it's hard to do stuff. They gave us money to go to Tayrona Park, which is really necessary. The...

We stayed here for a night of comfort after roughing it for days and before heading into the park for a night. It was perfect for our needs with a nice pool. We left our packs here while we were in Tayrona and upon fetching them they let us use the pool which was a life saver! Good location for...

This place is amazing, perched on the hill - be prepared to walk steps - it has a couple of very lovely and romantic cabins, all surrounded by a very well maintained tropical garden. It comes with a nice pool and very romantic (partly outdoor; under the stars) restaurant were your breakfast is also served. Only drawback is its proximity...

A great place to stay, with fantastic little private huts, great bathrooms and a private balcony. The restaurant is also really good and the attention is perfect. Everything is taken care off really well so it's definitely worth a visit!

This place went beyond my expectations: nice bungalow hidden in the trees, nice terrace with hammocks, nice bathroom with a tub for two. Nice little pool in a well maintained garden. The downsides: the noise coming from the trucks passing on the road. If you put earplugs the problem is solved. The restaurant is weak: very limited choice and very...

Infrastructure very nicely designed and relaxed atmosphere with Amazing views.

The hotel was lovely, clean, amazing food and good customer service. There is hot water, the rooms were tidy, clean and very comfortable, also the place is perfect If you want to spend a couple nights close to Tayrona park, then you can go to Palomino's beach which is unspoiled , we highly recommend it!!!

After spending 4 days in the jungle doing the lost city trek we didn't fancy sleeping outdoors in the park itself (Although in hindsight I wish we had spent more time there). This was the next best thing - dorm is cheap, clean and has ac. Breakfast was dece too. Would recommend if you don't want to sleep in a...

I stayed for 4 nights with my family of 4. Although rustic it was nice, clean and surrounded by trees. My big complaint was the noisy busy road. I expected to be surrounded by nature and although it looks that way the busy road is right next to the pool. The trucks are annoying and can be heard most of...
