5/5 Excellent

Would definitely go again

Amazing place to stay, very relaxing, very clean, amazing food, great and quiet location. Very friendly staff. I hope it stays that way

Stayed 2 nights in Feb 2019

4/5 Good

I thoroughly enjoyed three days of complete relaxation on a nice beach, just what the doctor ordered. (Not a Cancun type of beach where you can go for long walks, but a very nice beach for swimming.) The food was excellent all three days. The transportation from my hotel to the resort and then back to a different hotel in Cartegena was excellent but quite pricy. It would have been nice to know on the website about this added expense which was approx. $500,000 pesos ($250). For the price of this resort, all drinks and water should have been included. We are not big drinkers, but we do like our agua. Threecmeals with one drink for each meal were to be included with our rental. We ended up with an extra tab at the end of our stay and had to correct them as they had added our meals to the bill which were supposed to be included with our stay. We shouldn't have to deal with this. I am giving a very good rating due to the fact that I did relax on this trip. If you are looking for a place with a variety of activities, this is probably not the place for you. If you are looking for tranquility, a chance to get some sun and read a good book while listening to the ocean sounds, then this is the place for you.

Lodge for ocean lovers

Friendly staff, very good food. Old building needs remodeling. But warm beautiful ocean and sandy beach made our days.

Stayed 5 nights in Feb 2019

5/5 Excellent

Exceeded expectations in every way. It was a magical place tucked away from it all. Pricey? Sure, a bit. Worth it? Unequivocally. The food was particularly yummy and noteworthy.

3/5

overpriced rooms but nice low key beach

Rooms were OK, 30-40% more in price than they should have been. Only 1 bedside table in the room, you have to pay for water for brushing teeth (at these prices, they should give a bottle per guest per day). I foolishly paid extra for the Atlantico room- both the Atlantico & Indico rooms are below other rooms & have slatted doors that RATTLE LOUDLY every time the guest upstairs, ahem, have marital relations.... & the guests above our room had them OFTEN teach night we were there- we were woken up with a jolt each time. Get the cheaper cabana rooms, or the upstairs rooms, so that you can sleep or at least make eye contact with the couple 'honeymooning' above your room. The "eco" part means you have to put your toilet paper in the waste basket (not a deal breaker for us- they clean the rooms 2 times a day), they collect rain water for showers, so they advise you limit wasting water, totally fine with us. The food was incredible, however! The staff is truly great, and there are 2 very awesome and sweet dogs there who will be your friends if you like or will eave you alone if you're not into them. They did offer to book us a trip to Isla Rosario for snorkeling, but at $150 for the 2 of us for a 3 hour trip, we passed. There's a free kayak to use, the grounds could have a few more hammocks around. There's a lovely open air living room to hang out in. Water was very calm & safe for kids, but parts of it are squishy with seaweed. Great for a night or 2 if you have the money.

Stayed 4 nights in Apr 2018
