Beautiful rustic farmhouse type hotel hanging over the crashing ocean of Tyrona. Saltwater ocean on one side meets a freshwater lagoon on the other creating one of the most beautiful properties I have ever seen. Delicious communal breakfast and dinner served fresh daily makes for a very unique and interesting experience while residing with fellow travelers from across the world....

I stayed here in January of 2015. (Trip Advisor doesn't let me go back that far for some reason!) Although I meant to write a review and put up pictures of my stay, I neglected to do so. But let me tell you - This place is the closest thing to heaven, you'll find on earth. It's is truly magical....

As like other reviews, this was just the most amazing place to stay. We had the pleasure of 4 nights here and we actually stayed in Maloka which was incredible. Our room was at the far end so it had the best view of the Finca, the sea, the river and the Sierra Nevada mountains!!!! No-one actually walked past our...

If you get to choose, try staying in the Cabana. We even had the privilege of heaving the suite with a private bathroom and a private balcony. But this is not the most important thing - the location between river and ocean is breathtaking, you don't know if to look left or right. The house is a elderly and full...

When we decided to book just the more expensive suites were available, so we decided to stay somewhere else in the surrounding area. Since we were curious about the place, one day we went there to check it out. We arrived there at sunset, simply amazing... I can't comment on services and rooms (I had thought of staying at Maloka),...

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.
