Very peaceful location. We had great time in two days we stayed here. Service is awesome. Owners Sergio and Maria are very helpful, funny, they make sure everyone who stay are comfortable. Watching Sunrise early morning from the beach is unbelievable.

Beatifully situated with access to a beach and nice own grounds, this place is to return to. Swimming in the sea is not possible due to strong currents but, if you want to cool down, there is a reasonable size swimming pool. Everything is nicely maintained and staff is friendly. The restaurant is slightly more expensive than we expereinced during our > 4 weeks so far, but good. The only thing you need to get used to is that between ordering and serving food it can take up to 45 minutes easily (maybe as everything is freshly prepared?). It is very helpful that at least two staff members (manager and lady at the reception) speak English. For the first time in Colombia we saw here a book exchange facility!! Our start was unfortunatedly not that good as the car they would arrange for us never appeared in Riohacha to pick us up. Hopefully a once-only thing ! There are 6-7 rooms on site of which 5 in the main building. The room was spacious & nice and all rooms have their own -private- balcony. The only surprise to us was that we had only cold water in the room. Upon departure we were told we should have reported that earlier as there should have been warm water too.

We spent 5 nights in 2018 and did not regret it. We had a rental car which is absolutely necessary (in my opinion) to travel around that place. Sergio was friendly and hospitable and took very well care of us. Even when he was not around one day, he talked through the phone with me to ensure everything was ok. Best food during our Columbia trip - I hope for all guests that great cook is still there. Great pool and very quiet place. Do not go there in case you want to meet up, have party, etc. Beach is nice, but swimming is dangerous due to currents. We felt like we were the only guests all day having pool and beach for ourselves - like a private place! Great! So I recommended the place to a friend who unfortunaltely had a bad experience in 2019... so make sure Sergio is around during your stay before booking ;)

This is a beautiful peaceful small hotel with lovely facilities and a real ‘home from home’ Ethos - they run an honesty bar tab for example so you help yourself and write it down. Our room was gorgeous, the food amazing. They have a lovely pool which is great as although they have a private beach, the sea is very rough and not really swimmable. The place is immaculate. Two small downsides - they didn’t really know how to find the activity we wanted (a bird walk in Minca) beyond the booklet in the hotel. The second - which very nearly put us off - is an incomplete website which made us wonder about whether the hotel was as good as it looked on the surface. It is though.

This is our third visit to La Mar de Bien. We love this place. Very tranquil. This is where we come to relax. The grounds are stunning. The pool is very nice. Private beach. We can hear the ocean whiel we sleep. During this trip, the hotel arranged for us to get massages on the beach. The massages were excellent and cost much less than in the US. The food at La Mar de Bien is excellent. We particularly love the breakfast (my favorite is the arepas with eggs). The fruit juices are amazing. Two of the people in our party are vegetarians and La Mar de Bien had plenty of options for them. Sergio and Dianna are great hosts. While we stayed at La Mar de Bien, we did a great tour that was a hike to a cacao farm in the mountains, had a tour of the farm and had lunch at the farm – the name of the tour is Mirador Piedra Blanca (see Trip Advisor). We also did a day hike to a waterfall near Guachaca. The hotel is also near Parque Tayrona, Ciudad Perdida and Quebrada Valencia. If you want to relax at a beautiful location, stay here.
