I have seen this place before, in my dreams. Shhh, let’s keep it a secret. A beautifully designed beach hotel of seven airy, terraced rooms, this is the retirement project of owners Diana and Sergio, a lawyer and architect from Bogota. My partner and and spent three days in this little paradise. It is at once luxurious and simple, you go to sleep with the sound of the ocean and awake to birdsong. The wild beach is stunning. The pool is long enough to do some laps, and crystal clear. The food is excellent. The staff is warm and attentive. I very much enjoyed talking with Diana and Sergio, fell in love with their chocolate lab, Dona, and with the entire place. When can I come back?

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.

We wanted a perfect place to celebrate our wedding day and we found the perfect place with Sergio and his wife and the very lovely staff. The house is in the middle of the jungle, so you have a lot of freedom and silence. The food was amazing, very different to all the food we had in whole Colombia. Our room / suite was very clean and perfectly equipped with all the necessary things. The ocean is very rough, but there is a very huge swimming pool just in front the ocean. We had a very lovely atmosphere with Sergio and his wife, they are simply sooo nice hosts and can explain to you a lot about life and Colombia. We came here, just to enjoy family time and to get our heads free from the world. We found the paradise for us and looking back to a very happy holiday. Thank you.

My partner and I spent the day at La Mar de Bien. The owners were so kind and welcoming towards us, even when we did arrive dripping in sweat from the beach! The hotel is very well kept and beautiful, with an ethos (mi casa es su casa) which we adored. Not only did we have a relaxing day at the pool with excellent drinks and food, but the owners kindly helped us out via email with a query we had on transportation the next day. Highly recommend this place to anyone who finds themselves in the area. If we ever have the good fortune to find ourselves back in that part of the world, we'll definitely be staying. Muchas Gracias, Lauren and Neil (from Birmingham)

Situated between Parque Tayrona and the fun beach town of Palomino, La Mar de Bien was the perfect place to stay. You will feel like part of a family when you stay here! Super relaxing, incredibly clean, and the food is top-notch (breakfast, lunch, and dinner were all amazing). I decided to stay here 2 more nights because of how much I loved it. Rodrigo is a lovely host, always making sure you are comfortable and happy. Laundry service and massage on-site are extra pluses!

We had a very pleasant and relaxing stay at La Mar de Bien. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the hotel provides for several spots to relax, including a swimming pool or a massage tent on the beach. Staff was extra nice and the food was excellent (so far one of the best we had in Colombia). In particular the shrimp-based dishes were exquisite. The owners are helpful and keen to provide tips for short trips in the area. The place has its direct private access to the beach. Perfect place to just chill and relax. (Bonus: there are no mosquitoes!). We are very tempted to come again.
