We stayed in Casa Holanda recently for one night only as we had absolutely NO sleep. This was due to the noise from the bar next door (til1am), followed by blaring music coming from a private house a couple of roads away. To top it off, the aircon unit was the noisiest ever. Speaking of aircon, this is only available from 8pm to 8am (unless you pay extra) and the fans do not cool the room down during the day. The bed has a plastic undersheet which makes it all the more sweaty!
We were also disappointed by the staff who had been so so lovely when we looked around but barely cracked a smile once we had checked in. The breakfast was included in the 80000 COP we paid for the night but was tiny.
So if you are going to Tatanga to party - even though the hotel itself isn't a party hotel- this is your place as it is near the seafront and near bars and noisy corner shops.
And to end on a positive note, the hotel itself is very nice, the rooms are large enough and clean and there are 2 nice terraces. We stayed in room 5 and think the upstairs rooms may be cooler although just as noisy.
You can't book a room without paying in advance.
UPDATE: Casa Holanda contacted us after this review was published and apologised; they offered us a full refund which we really appreciated. Furthermore, they say they will take our comments on board and check the aircon unit and provide a larger breakfast.
