Beautiful hotel, amazing staff. The only problem is that tennis court is far than outdated, ping pong table on the beach could be fixed. Other than that, I would highly recommend this property to my friends and family

Mini Honeymoon
Fantastic resort and brand new build in December 2021. We had an ocean view 3rd floor superior room which was great albeit we had requested an upgrade. No suites were available at time of request. The only downside of this place is that it is VERY far and remote. If you use the road transport it’s bumpy and sketchy in the evening. If you use the boat or catamaran transport it’s faster, smooth, yet double the price. The beach isn’t pure white sand. It has coral and rocks and lots of seaweed. There are also small fish that do bite … (nipples mainly) because they confuse it for coral. Hotel closes the Beach at 6 pm and the pool at 7 pm which is very odd considering people are on vacation. Besides that the service itself and the hotel is top notch. American prices for everything though.

Birthday Celebration at Baru !
Nuestra estancia fue magnifica!Todo el servicio del hotel en general muy bueno, todo el personal muy atento. Cabe resaltar los chicos en la piscina y area de la playa, Luis, Gustavo y George que hicieron de nuestros dias los mejores. El hotel es Nuevo,todas las habitaciones estan geniales, la comida real y deliciosa, este hotel esta 100% recomendado para desconectar y descansar. La pergola para ver una vista 360 Del Mar Caribe Colombiano y en nuestro caso el eclipse lunar mas hermoso de nuestras vidas. Volveremos :)
