    Adorable little hotel in Taganga. Though us tourists expecting the Hilton may be somewhat disappointed. I loved the hotel and the fishing village of Taganga.

    A brood of pigeons nested outside the bathroom window, cooed the entire stay. Room was a little dark with no outside lightening except the one window in bathroom. Since the view from the hotel was so lovely, it would have been great to see from the room.

    Good sized room, good bathroom. Rooftop bar/patio. Jacuzzis. Beach view. Good restaurant. Good breakfast choice. Comfortable lounge. Excellent value for money. Helpful staff - kept suitaces for a few days while we did Tayrona National Park. Hotel was an excellent end to the privations of that trip.

    Nothing wrong at all.

    When we arrived air conditioning was not working, the sheets on bed were not changed. Hotel located far from everything, not very good neighborhood around, scary

    It was right on the beach, with great food and wonderful staff.

    Perhaps we made a mistake, but on your map of the hotel, we thought we were IN Santa Marta. It was a good mistake, but others might be upset.

    The staff was very friendly and the facilities are always clean. They offer a good american breakfast that is included in the price.
