The cabana is a beautiful spot with amazing views. The food was absolutely delicious and staff very helpful. There is no hot water so brace yourselves if you're there on a windy day, but the view from the bathroom more than makes up for it! Perhaps don't go there straight from Ciudad Perdida - have a nice warm shower in...

This is a world class getaway for the adventurer. We stayed in the cabins which are on a rocky point on the edge of the sea. These cabins have been showcased in films, travel magazines and media for the past 40 years. The rooms are simple, but the views are amazing. The food is prepared at the cabins and is...

We popped into the Finca Barlovento this week to see something of the beaches-and-mountains Colombia, finding them on the Ecohabs website and lucking out into rooms on the last minute. The place is NOT a five star hotel - it has no hot water, lunch served, has shared bathrooms for the cabanas, fake swimming pool and no organised water sports....

This place had great views of everything I went to Colombia for. The rooms were large, and very clean. The staff was great!!!! The family style breakfast and dinners allowed time to talk with the other guest from around the world. Less than a 1 minute walk from your room, you are at one of the two beaches onsite. To...

Had a fabulous 4 day stay here. The perfect place to relax and enjoy the amazing views and wildlife. Beautiful sunsets from the balcony. Food was exceptional freshly cooked each morning and evening. Honesty bar very useful after the staff have gone home for the night. Would definitely recommend staying here.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Finca for 4 nights in late November 2016. We enjoyed every minute of our time there. I'll take the time to explain each of the stars I am giving the Finca. One Star - Location. It is about a 5 minute drive from the entrance of Tayrona. The staff at the Finca helped...

This place is absolutely wonderful. It is just less than 10 minutes from Park Tayrona and is set on one of the most beautiful properties i've ever seen. We stayed in the beach house two nights and in the more modern building for one night. in late November 2016. The food was wonderful (both breakfast and dinner) and the entire...

The location of this hotel is unbeatable, amazing views of the river and the sea. Not a luxury hotel, better to stay in the suite if you don't want to share bathroom. Totally worth staying there instead of Parque Tayrona, much more beautiful beaches and a lot less crowded.

The location was wonderful. A pity that the staff in charge of managing the hotel are providing such a poor service and that the tourist always has the impression of the hotel staff trying to rip him off. Some examples: 1) taxis and tours - not providing regular taxi services but rather recommending an extremely out priced friend who has...
