This hotel is a real treat.
The location is great. Close to a large supermarket, banks and lots of cheap, classy restaurants serving fresh and delicious meals. The streets have a real raw, un-gentrified, charm with the amazing old architecture still untouched. The water is only 4 minutes walk away and a taxi to the other beaches just costs a few dollars. (P.s. the taxis don't have meters but they seemed fairly honest. Just check the price before you get in.)
The complimentary breakfast is really nice including: coffee, fresh fruit, toast, ham, eggs, and delicious tropical fruit juice. All served with a big smile.
The rooms are very contemporary and great for the climate. I stayed in the larger room which was a real treat. A/C is there when the heat gets too impossible or the plunge pool was a great option with an icy beer in hand (US$1.50).
The staff went out of their way to point out where the local cafes and restaurants were and how to get to the attractions. Tayrona National Park is a must do. Get the bus local bus there but its a full day trip, pack water, hiking shoes and so get up very early and don't forget your passport. Also check out Rodadero and Taganga beaches.
