A jewel within the forgotten jewel that Mompox is. Great place, very comfortable and nicely decorated rooms; spacious bathrooms, wonderful roof terrace with jacuzzi overlooking the city.
Service provided by the owners and its crew is sincere, subtle and very useful.
Breakfasts were wonderful, especially the arepa de huevo! We had lunch only once, great local fish and beef.
It's definitely worth taking the long trip to Mompox to discover this small town and be pleasantly surprised by this hotel.

We stayed at the Bioma Hotel for three nights. It is a true oasis within the charming UNESCO heritage site of Mompox, and to escape back to the swimming pool after a hot day's sightseeing! And it was hot in Mompox! Geraldo and his wife Rosabla are the most charming hosts, and their staff are all delightful. We were looked after beautifully. The room which we had overlooking the pool (La Candellaria) was well furnished, airy and bright. The breakfasts are excellent (especially the arepa con huevos), and the BBQ which Gerardo and Rosalba provided on the roof terrace was delicious. I cannot recommend this hotel more highly.

Room Tip: go for La Candellaria

My husband and I travel extensively but have never had an experience like we had at the Biome Boutique hotel. It seems trite to say that we were made to feel part of the family but this is how the owners, genteel and gentle Gerardo and his wife Rosalba (sorry if the spelling is incorrect), treated us. We are early risers on vacation, but there was Gerardo quietly and attentively ready to provide us with guidance, for instance telling us to quickly go to the market to catch the boats bringing the produce from across the river. When Rosalba found out that we would like to visit villages along the Magdalena, and it was late afternoon of our last day, she immediately got on the phone trying deperately to make it happen for us and even sending one of her valued staff members to accompany us down to the docks as our Spanish is very poor. It really felt as if we were treasured house guests and she was doing everything to give us a good time. And then there was her cooking! It was an absolute delight. She used little oil, local ingredients, and it was by far the best food we had in Columbia. Although the hotel was so small, any time when needed drinks or food, it was immediately available with the only proviso that we choose our menu items for dinner a couple of hours in advance so that it could be freshly cooked.
The hotel is newly renovated and everything was beautiful and spotless. The shower was more attractive than the shower at the Santa Clara (Sofitel) in Cartagena where we had just spent 4 days. There was loads of counter space and the bathroom was spacious. (We were in one of the larger room on the first floor).

One final note, although guidebooks warn one about the difficulty reaching Mompox, Gerardo organized transport for us from Cartagena and back, and he kept checking on us all the way. it was all seamless and so much easier than expected. A driver picked us up and it took about 4 hours to reach Magangue (an interesting drive). We were met by someone who took our luggage, organized a Chalupa (boat ticket) and saw us onto the boat for a 20 minute crossing. Across the river someone else met us and carried our luggage to another taxi for a final ride to Mompox. All of this had been arranged by Gerardo and he kept calling these contacts on their cellphones to check that it all was going smoothly.
We cannot rave more about this hotel and our delightful hosts. Thank you Gerardo and Rosalba!

Room Tip: First floor rooms are quieter than the ground floor rooms around the swimming pool.

Outstanding hotel. We arrived and the owners where leaving for a 2 days rest - so we had the hotel to... ourselves. They generously offered her the best room of all, 1st floor facing the swimming pool. The room was big, clean and the hotel gorgeous. It was so hot outside! the in-room air co, silent, was efficient and the swimming pool in the evening a delight. We ate at the hotel most evenings, outside the swimming pool. Food was good, not excellent but good. Breakfast was a delight - When the owners (a retired well-traveled Colombian couple speaking excellent English) came back, we suddenly felt part of the family. Their kindness, attention to detail was remarkable. They organised a few inexpensive tours for us, visiting the villages outside Mompox - a must. What fabulous time we had! We will never forget Gerardo and his lovely wife. Also Mompox as a village is magical.

Room Tip: Upper room is fantastic

The Bioma Boutique Hotel is a first class facility conveniently located in the Mompos. Gerardo, the owner, is extremely helpful and does everything to make your stay perfect.

Romantic setting, perfect for couples. Jacuzzi on the roof, together BBQ area and area for sun bathing. Rooms are first class, well appointed and very clean and tidy. Good wifi and tv service.

Hotel is close to several beautiful churches and only one block from the river.

Best part of visiting Mompos is being able to do absolutely nothing and the Bioma hotel makes this activity particularly fulfilling.

I recommend this hotel 100%!!

Peter, thanks for your review. it is very good to find persons like you that find delightfull to be able to "do nothing". in our days to be able to find places like Mompos is very difficult.
your review has a hidden message that reads: " I´ll return".

Best regards; Gerardo Alferez
