Good location and OK, with some issues
Great location close to beach and evening action, with a pretty good restaurant (with many street dogs) which is also the popular onsite lounge area with fun atmosphere/live music at night. All the usual activities/tours could be arranged at reception. Some very dismissive reception staff made the arrival unpleasant, then others had to make up for them (i.e. hotel was supposedly full so no room for us, then reservation was missing, then incorrect, then wrong room assigned, blamed booking system error, etc, too much time wasted, when in fact several reservation was there and also room types were still available). Terrible first impression. Double room with aircon was very basic and borderline impractical, with no amenities and it had a terrible, lumpy mattress that was too old and deformed and much too soft. No hot water. 2 wifi networks provided good, strong signal. Noisy with music and the local party scene until about 11pm, then was quiet (midweek stay). Lots and lots of mosquitoes at restaurant, room porch and in room.

Palomino is a beautiful on the Colombian coast. This rustic paradise has only 1 paved road cutting the town in half. The main road that leads to the beach is unpaved with huge dips in the road. This hotel is located about 10 minutes from the paved highway and 5 minutes from the beach. The location really cannot be beat. Additionally, it has one of the best restaurants in town with a cool lounge area as well. We stayed in the private rooms La Guajira and Sierra Nevada. From the Sierra Nevada room, we were able to see the glaciers of the Sierra Nevada. It was an unforgettable experience! The rooms were very comfortable with pretty nice beds and reliable AC. The breakfast was also pretty decent. The only negative is not the hotel's fault; power outages. On every day of our visit the power would go out for multiple times a day; not for long but still annoying with wifi and AC going in and out. That's part of the deal with visiting this amazing place. Nearby restaurants and bars are among the best in town. The beach is one of the best in the world and only 5 minutes away. Be sure to check out where the river meets the ocean for an unrivaled experience. Oh, do the river tubing tour!

Super hostel! Les côtés positifs sont: proximité de la plage (5-10 min. de marche), le restaurant sur place est très bon, les chambre Guajira et Sierra Nevada sont vastes avec balcon et un peu en retrait de l'action. Les petits côtés négatifs: matelas déformé, eau froide seulement dans la douche (mais on s'y attendait), un petit frigo dans la chambre serait apprécié, bruyant jusqu'à tard dans la nuit à cause de la musique qui provient d'un peu partout à Palomino. Nous avons très apprécie en général.
