My girlfriend and i decided to escape Cartagena during the long holiday weekend and ended up in Taganga. We called Ana & Jean-Luc at the last minute, and luckily they had a room available for us for 2 nights. This was our first trip to Taganga, and we weren't sure what to expect, especially once we got off the pavement and the taxi driver started to complain about the road. But, as soon as Ana welcomed us in and showed us around, we realized that Casa Los Cerros was exactly the escape we were looking for. They have 3 small "cottages" each with air conditioning, fan, tv and private bathroom. Our cottage had a small kitchen as well, although we never needed to use it. But the pest part by far was their amazing pool and patio area. It was such a nice setup, that we abandoned our notions of exploring Tyrona and ended up spending a lengthy amount of time each day enjoying the pool and the scenery. Breakfast was included with our room and consisted of a large fruit bowl, 2 eggs, toast, coffee and juice. all was excellent. They are setup to provide lunches and dinner and have very reasonable prices. It is about a 10 minute walk down to the beach, and a bit more back up to the house as it is up a decent hill. Although this was probably a good thing, as it was a bit quieter there on the outskirts of Taganga. We will undoubtedly return the next time we need a quick escape from Cartagena.

Room Tip: The lower room has a private kitchen and is a little more secluded from the other guests, although i...

My husband and I stayed at Casa Los Cerros for four nights in July and could not have asked for a better place to stay. Jean-Luc and his wife Ana are excellent hosts, very welcoming, funny and knowledgeable. Ask Jean-Luc for any advice and he'll be more than happy to assist you. The rooms are basic but clean and the breakfast provided was delicious. Jean-Luc also cooks dinner for his guests which was handy when being too lazy to walk down into Taganga. The hotel is located at the end of the town but feels very safe, although the walk back after a night out made me feel a bit uncomfortable due to the dimly lit street and quite poor neighbourhood. The town itself is quite ordinary unless you’re into scuba diving but there are a few good restaurants (try the fish at Estrella del Mar) and bars.
Otherwise simply enjoy the great pool at Casa Los Cerros and some drinks from the very affordable minibar.

We stayed in Casa Los Cerros for 8 nights and we loved it!! Jean-Luc and Ana (and Sebastian;) are the bests hosts we could wish for. The location is a great base to undertake all kinds of activities. If there's any advice needed on trips or anything else, they love to give it to you. With only three apartments on the lot, it's quiet and personal.
If you don't know where to eat, try Jean-Luc's cooking, we loved that!! (especially the home-made sauce).
The room we stayed in was very comfortable and clean. The hammock was the perfect hang out after a day at the beach. The private fridge (filled with cold beers, water and sodas) and the swimming pool (with amazing view) were very refreshing after a days of hard work ;).
We really recommend Casa Los Cerros to everybody.

Jean Luc, Ana and Sebastian..... Thank you very much, again.

Normally I'm suspicious of places with all five-star reviews, but Casa Los Cerros deserves their reviews. We stayed here for two nights recently and everything was great. The owners are some of the warmest and most welcoming hosts, and they seem to put a lot of themselves into this place. The breakfast was great, room was fine (working AC, mostly warm water etc) and the outdoor pool area is very pretty. I really loved the patio with the hammock and (very affordable) mini bar. Taganga isn't the safest town, but the hotel is a guarded compound and is completely secure. The location is up on the hill a little bit, which makes it much quieter than the places on the beach. The only downside is that it can be quite a hike to get there from the main part of town!

We stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved it. The room was plain but compfortable, with a small bathroom with shower/toilet/basin. Everything was very clean. Jean-Luc is an excellent host and keeps you smiling and laughing all the time. Taganga is a very laid back little coastal town. Local residents are fishermen or work in the tourist trade. The place is NOT for the high end traveller, but if you love scuba and snorkeling, this is the place to be. The town it self is a bit dirty and run down, but the restaurants and street cafe's give excellent meals. Casa Los Cerros is a little haven away from the noise, with a brilliant, clean and warm pool, very secure. Laze around during the day and go out to the local street pubs at night. With a little bit of imagination and a few carefully placed screens, Casa Los Serros could be the ideal naturist resort....but alas, it is not.

I booked one night here and stayed 8. My excuse was that I would have time to do a diving course, but I didn't even want to leave this place for that! It is just idyllic. Jean-Luc picked me up from the airport and did nothing but crack jokes for the next 8 days. I didn't see Ana as much but she was great with the breakfast each morning. I barely saw the kids at all.

I got a chance to stay in both rooms (I think there is a 3rd one now down below but not 100%). They are essentially the same except one can't access the wifi signal. They have great little rock bathrooms, plenty of space, air-con which Jean-Luc says he never uses but I found essential, a minibar which gets refreshed all the time and you just add up the total when you leave and a terrace with a hammock. The $10k set meals are the best deal. It is always something from the menu that ordinarily costs more but because the family is having it that night anyway, you get it cheap!

It is definitely expensive for the area but the service is great. Jean-Luc took me to Santa Marta to get money out and buy a cable for my camera, showed me around different parts of Santa Marta twice and drove me to all the best diving centres. You just don't get that kind of service in many places. And he was always happy and cracking jokes in almost perfect English. He just loves it there.

Room Tip: The one closer to the pool has wifi.
