Under the Taganga Sea
I went to Taganga for scuba diving, my place was the perfect location. In the morning walked a few paces for breakfast. The dive shop was next to my bed, so close I could use the WiFi but did not need it because ours was great. In the evening I walked three steps from the courtyard and captured the most beautiful sunset.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We arrived to Svahns apartment early Wednesday morning after visiting Tayrona National Park. Up until that point our stay in Colombia had been amazing. When we arrived at the make shift reception (a bedroom with a Desktop computer) we were told that our reservation could not be located. Even given the fact I had produced our reservation email from To make the situation even worse, the lady working that particular day was unfriendly and unhelpful. After prolonged discussions she finally found our reservation. Once we entered the room we found out that the Hotel does not provide hot water. This meant cold showers. The bathroom was a wet room which didnt drain water properly. Therefore it meant anybody wanting to use the toilet after a shower was lucky to make out alive without a broken leg or dislocated shoulder. The beds were uncomfortable and linen not fresh. My friend ended up sleeping on the floor as it was more comfortable. Around 6pm on the Wednesday night, we abruptly got a knock at the door asking for us to pay for the room now or we would be kicked out. Further we were told that the card machine was not working and we would have to pay cash. This was in complete contrast to what "" had written in our reservation. Given that Taganga only has one cash machine in the whole town which very often runs out of cash. Reception was not open at 8am (as advertised) so we could check out.
