We stayed here for two nights and booked a suite without air conditioning. That was a mistake, we definitely needed air conditioning, Mompox is a hot and humid town. In the end we negotiated air conditioning for the same price as without, which was nice.
The rooms are very large with big, comfortable beds and high ceilings. The bathrooms are large enough with very good showers. My one complaint would be that when we arrived the room and bathroom had a lot of mosquitoes (this is a tropical wetland after all), but there aren't any mosquito nets over the beds. They do spray the rooms with insecticide, but a small investment in mosquito nets would have made me feel a lot happier about sleeping in the room. That said, I don't think we got bitten in the room.
The staff are friendly and helpful, including helping us arrange a trip down the river. Although when we arrive the manager wasn't there and a young boy seemed to be manning the reception. He was far too interested in facebook to get of the sofa to help me to get a new lightbulb for the bedside table in the room. That aside, everyone was very nice.
All-in-all a good place to base yourself in Mompox, but the addition of bed nets would be welcome.
