You MUST stay here! It is paradise! The moment we came down the windy dirt path off the main road and stepped foot on the property we were taken back by the quiet. There was a peace and tranquility that came over us. Greeted by a warm staff who offered us fresh drinks, my kids flopped down in one of many swinging chairs hammocks or loungers. The thatched roofs seemed to instantly absorb all the noise. And this was just the open air lobby! The pool was pristine. The grounds were impeccable. The elevated open air massage room was right from a dream. Getting a massage to the sound of the ocean is like nothing else on Earth. The breakfast buffet with fresh fruit - the pool table and table tennis and bar with fresh piña coladas and frappe limonadas (and I’m just talking kids drinks) was great. You could stay here for a week and do nothing else. Of course we didn’t do that. We sailed out of Santa Marta and visited the luxurious beaches of La Tayrona - and you should too! But this spot is definitely a must! We will be back!

It is a piece of paradise. The property is beautiful and clean. The rooms are simple but nice and comfortable. The bathroom is different and I like the open concept of the shower. Food is good, the menu is basic. It can be improved. The staff is extremely friendly and the service is excellent. They are always willing to help you. There are different activities to do and the hotel is great assisting you to coordinate. It was a great experience. I totally recommend it.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Although I informed them about my late arrival via email and they confirmed that they will hold my reservation, upon arrival I was informed that my room was given to someone else. Temporary bed I was offered was full of insects. No toilette paper in the bathroom (was I supposed to bring my own?). Good luck arriving after midnight...they close the gate to the resort and you have to walk one mile from the street to the resort. No one picks up the phone when you call them on the 2 numbers they posted at the gate. Would not recommend.
