I absolutely loved my solo stay here. Views were stunning and the location was very peaceful. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. I loved how everyone was respectful of nature - we need more places like this! Definitely coming back.

I stayed at Matuy’s Natural Reserve for about 3 days, enjoying the peaceful and calmed environment it provides along with friends. Easy access to the beach and walking distance to the river for those who want to experience both an ocean and river swim. The staff was amazing, always surpassing expectations and being extremely helpful, even when I left my camera at the reserve, they kindly made sure to ship it back to me. The food they serve is incredibly tasty. I can’t find that kind of food here in the city. I am definitely coming back to this place for sure!

The Whole place, the huts, the people, everything was perfect. The service 10/10 A perfect place to disconnect, to feel and live the nature. Total Peace. The huts are incredible and very well equiped. The No electricity theme makes you really enjoy the natural reserve, the animals, and to truly experience peace and calm. the Service and the Staff were so kind, very educated and ready to help, to improve and to make you feel great. TOTALLY RECOMENDED

The hotel is absolutely fabulous Since the begging of our stay we felt the warm welcome of the hosts and the beach. There are many bungalows in the shore of the beach and its very well made All dinners are included and you don’t have to worry about anything just to rest and forget everything The food is really good and the fact of not having electricity in the night is very nice if you’re looking to disconnect The only thing you have to take in count is that if you want to go to Tairona Park the hotel might not be the best if you don’t have car It is located 45 minutes away from the park and the entrance is 1 kilometer long and another 2 kilometers from the little town Palomino If you want to rest and stay calm this is the place for you
