I really recommend the apartments are very good, is clean and spacious, perfect if you are more than 2 person. Is very good located, in the center of the town and very close to a dive stores. Some times at night, especially at weekends can be loud because there is a disco like one block away. The prices are normally... More

Really couldn't recommend the apartments more. The rooms were spacious, clean and the kitchens well equipped, and the beds absolutely huge and so comfortable. The location could not have been better, a 20 second walk to the Main Street and beach but with the feeling of being totally safe with big wooden and iron gates to enter. Really relaxed staff...

The apartments are very modern, but somewhat austere, and lack some furniture and places to put your belongings. There is a balcony, but most of the view is of the rather bare yard and open staircase. The apartments are about 30 metres from the beach front, and therefore very convenient for the bars,and restaurants on the front However, there is... More

There were 6 of us who stayed in the biggest apartment. It was very clean and comfortable. I liked the location because it was so close to the beach and restaurants. The only problem was the club music stayed on all night long until like 6 a.m. I chose this place because we were charged by the room, not for... More

I was supposed to stay 12 days, but stayed only 2 and moved to other hotel. The main beds are King as in the photo's but quite hard. Had unit # 6. Terrible noise at night due to the loudest bar in town on the same block, Noisy air conditioner did not even drown out the noise from the music.... More

I traveled with my Family (of 6) and after seeing the Website and reading the reviews we made a reservation on Svahns. Cristina (one of the owners) was super friendly to us. We reserved our room in advance, and had no problem when we wanted to do little changes on the dates. Our room was comfortable, with a private Balcony,... More

Nice accommodations are extremely hard to find in Taganga and I stayed at Svahns after looking at 5 different hotels. I read positive reviews of this place and have no idea what everyone is talking about. This place is awful. The rooms are 'nicer', the rooms smell funny, the curtains do not keep any light out, and the shower and... More

I've have been to Taganga several times, and I always end up staying at Svahns. Michell is a great guy from Sweden, and he has constructed something very distinct from the rest of the accomodations you will find in Taganga. The rooms are spacious, the beds enourmous, and the price is good. The location is just of the beach, 30... More

We were a group of 9 friends looking for a place to stay in Taganga and at first could not believe the deal we got for Svahn's. The rooms are spacious and modern, the hotel is brand new, and its located near the center of Taganga. We ended up paying $23/person for two rooms - some people slept on the... More
