Workers and owners are absolutely amazing, friendly and warmly with costumers . The place is a peaceful one , magic ! The perfect place to relax and do nothing . My unique complain is about the Restaurant . Cami, as lovely person but very strict with the portions of food . So: for example , if you want another arepa you must buy the whole breakfast . When you visit the beach you get very hungry and there is no many opciones , also portions are very small .
I stayed at la Sirena for two month to work as a Yoga Teacher at a yoga teacher training hosted there. I loved the nature around us and the beautiful beach of palomino. The staff was beyond friendly and attentive, the overall vibe was amazing and I had a good internet connection to work remotely as well ! The cabanas are well furnished and the yoga shala is exeptional ! I also recommend booking a massage with Jessy R. Roda who works at the local SPA area of la sirena. In general, I had a wonderful time there and I would recommend 100%!
We spent the most relaxing few days in this hotel. For us it was perfect and the best place we stayed whilst in Colombia. It is extremely environmentally friendly and the owners have worked hard to create a peaceful, sustainable haven for travellers. The room was spacious, cool during the night, well-equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed showering outside, especially in the evening and looking up at the thousands of stars (no light pollution!). Even the soap was made by the hotel, which was filled with essential oils! We spent a lot of time reading in the hammocks on the terrace of our cabin, listening to the sound of the waves. The restaurant was great too with organic vegetarian food, a lot of which is grown in the small farming area within the grounds. The food was all really tasty whilst being healthy. I had a relaxing 1 hour massage during the stay, which was heavenly and approx. $32. The lady seemed experienced and used good quality essential oils. I haven't been so relaxed for a very long time! I attended yoga every day (approx $6) and absolutely loved that you could hear the sea whilst taking part. The instructors were excellent, friendly and very knowledgeable. Thank you to the owners for creating such a wonderful hotel. We will never forget our stay and time in Palomino. Note: please be advised that during out stay (Feb 2020) the beach had become very eroded due to high tides and is not how it appears in the photos on TripAdvisor. The sand was also dark brown/black colour in some areas which impacted on the colour of the sea. Note: whilst there was a child staying at this hotel when we were there, I would say that it is probably less child friendly than other hotels in Palomino on the basis that it's a very quiet and relaxing hotel and there isn't much of an area for kids to play or a pool. Note: the hotel uses compost toilets - this wasn't a problem at all for us but I imagine they aren't for everyone!…
We wanted to relax for one last week at playa palomino at La Sirena Hotel. But to our surprise, there was no beach. The beach has eroded away! Very sad to see. So there was no sunbathing or walks at the beach since it was gone. And no swimming since the currents were too strong. The hotel had a fence around it, So when we wanted to go to town, the hotel said that the closest way is to walk along the beach...what beach?!? Another option was tuc tuc, which we took. The hotel forgot to inform us that they close the gates to the hotels at 10 pm. So we were looked out after an evening in town. Who closes a hotel resort at 10 pm? I could go on...but my conclusion is that I don’t recommend this place!
We had a fantastic time at the La Sirena hotel! We loved the nature everywhere and the food both for breakfast and dinner was really good and all vegetarian. We stayed at a cabaña with normal toilet which was very romantic for a couple, especially with the shower directly outside in the nature. Of course though you have to get used to the insects from time to time ;) The beach was quiet at least directly in front of the hotel and as a tour we did the river tubing, which was heaps of fun but quite a long tour (4 hours). Would definitely recommend to stay at La Sirena!
