The restaurant has a beautiful view of the jungle, and the pool area is lovely. Like all the other accommodation nearby it is next to the road. Without that, the place would have been a total paradise. Nevertheless it's a wonderfully relaxing place to return to after being in the nearby national park. The food in the restaurant was excellent, some of the best I had on my trip around Colombia, even if it was a tad more expensive compared to other places. Ask where you can fill up your water bottle to save on plastic use. The beds in the dorm were comfortable. Not an awful lot of room for your stuff, but a pleasant enough, light space, with a nice bathroom in the room with good, hot shower. There is a free shuttle to Tayrona national park in the morning and to get back on the bus is only 2,000 COP and 10 minutes. The girl at check-in was amazingly knowledgable, as was the manager, about the park, transport to other places etc. There was no wifi but a restaurant nearby had good wifi, coffee, and good, reasonable food.

We had a wonderful night in one of the private cabins they offer. The bathroom is wide and pretty, the bedroom is fully equipped (AC, big fan & giant mosquito net upon the bed). We were afraid at first because this hotel is nearby the road but it was not a big deal at all. A very nice place indeed.

Great location close to entrance of Tayrona Park. The hostel is beautiful--they''ve done a great job of using vegetation around the cabanas and on the walls...gives you an exotic jungle feel. The rooms are lovely; spacious, clean bathrooms, beautiful (and clean) pool. Great staff. My only criticism is with the food. Because there aren't many restaurants nearby, the food in their restaurant is extremely expensive by Colombian standards. You can end up paying more for food than for the room.

Upon checking out i paid for 2 nights and all the food on my card. The manager said the transaction didn't go through because the signal had been lost. So we processed again. However, both payments were taken from my account. I have emailed them many times in the last month and still not had my money back. We enjoyed our stay BUT there is no way I want to pay for it twice. Really bad that they are not responding or paying me back. They are fully aware of the issue, they are just not returning my money. I am seeking advise on how to get my refund whilst also letting people know this is how they operate!!!
