Way too expensive for the bad service and product that they offer. The food is simple and tasteless. How can you serve pasta and meat sauce when you've just next to the sea? The worst part was the service that tried to charge me for everything even things I hadn't ordered. Will not be returning and advice everyone to avoid.

We were a big group of 28 people from all over the world, celebrating a post-wedding trip (group honeymoon?) in Colombia. I cannot even describe what a pleasant and relaxing stay we had at this ecohotel! First of all, the location is amazing and took our breath away! The water was excellent for swimming and the beach was beautiful! The... More

We stayed one night in Play La Roca during our roundtrip in Colombia with our three children aged 7, 5 and 3. The location of this hotel is absolutely stunning. It's locked between the road and the beach in lovely green surroundings. Although it must be close to the road, we have not heard anything during our stay. The beach... More

For what it is--a true eco hotel (maloka-style rooms, gorgeous natural setting, no AC, no hot water)--this place deserves 5 stars. Worried about amenities? Content yourself with a great massage and the hypnotic THUNDER of the surf and forget about anything that requires electricity. With the constant sea breeze, I felt no need for air conditioning (the rooms have fans),... More

Had a fantastic time at this eco hotel. The staff were accommodating and the food was fresh and tasty. The huts are on the private beach which is clean with chairs and loungers ready for the guests to use. The complex is very quiet and the rooms are clean and comfy. Getting to town is a short bus ride or... More

Excellent place to stay and relax! The Eco-hotel has everything you need to have a wonderful time away of noise and crowd. Beautiful meals, comfortable rooms, friendly staff. The beach is nice and clean. You wont see other tourists than the hotel's guests. Although waves are quite strong you can seat and have a nice view of the sunset. Would... More

It was a wonderful get a way, with a special love from many years ago. The right choice for the both of us. First, it is an Eco-Hotel, a little on the nature side. as in no air-conditioning and NO TV. there is electric, as in a fan and lights. It can get a little warm while sleeping. BUT, you... More

Great hotel compound with beautiful bungalows, 4 km outside of Palomino. The hotel offers a private, stunning beach and since there are only around 14 rooms, you can relax in a peaceful, serene and very private surrounding. Be aware though, that the sea is too dangerous to swim in (plenty of strong currents, apparently). The only reason, I do not... More
