10/10 Exceptional

I absolutely loved this place. The setting is tranquil and beautiful, beside a river. The room is very comfortable and has AC, and there is wifi in communal areas. But what really sets it apart is the staff! Cynthia, Daniel, Bruno and Paula are amazing. I’m vegan and they made me the best vegan meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also had suggestions and advice for things to do. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! The only thing to keep in mind is that to arrive at the hotel you have to cross two streams, but someone from the hotel will help you and it’s part of the adventure!

8/10 Very good

We loved it, but read the small print!
This hotel is a labor of love created by a French speaking couple who saw the potential in a patch of jungle. It's amazing that they designed and built this retreat in just a few years. The rooms are enormous, all with spacious balconies overlooking the jungle. The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating. The food is a cut above most hotels. Local foods are available, but the menu features delicious French cuisine. A made-to-order breakfast is included. Lunch and dinner are available. And big bunches of bananas hanging around the restaurant provide free snacks 24/7. We went to the Barranquero because it was so close to Tayrona National Park. It's a long story, but we were unable to get tickets to the park. The hotel owner tried to pull some strings, but it was impossible. So we spent two and a half days on the hotel grounds, just walking in the jungle, swimming in the river, relaxing on our balcony, and enjoying the food. We loved it. Travelers should be aware of some drawbacks. There is no hot water, and the towels and toiletries are minimal. The property is surrounded by rivers. When you first arrive and at checkout, the hotel takes you through the river in a 4-wheel drive. While you're there, you're on your own. You can't leave the property without fording the river.

Hôtel à deux pas de Tayrona au milieu de la nature
Cet hôtel est très récent et tenu par des Français. Il est à l'écart de la route, ce qui est rare dans le secteur. Donc tranquille et entouré par la nature. La contrepartie est qu'il faut passer un cours d'eau en enlevant les chaussures, mais on vous donne l'option de venir vous chercher en 4x4 si vous avez beaucoup de bagages. La nourriture est très bonne. J'ai beaucoup apprécié le petit déjeuner, sur commande, très bon et franchement généreux. La chambre etait propre, comfortable et joliment aménagée. Mon seul reproche est la mauvaise isolation phonique par rapport aux voisins, pourtant les murs semblent bien épais. Les propriétaires sont très sympas, je reviendrai avec plaisir.

10/10 Exceptional

Das Hotel befindet sich ca. 10min Fußweg vom Haupteingang zum Nationalpark Tayrona. Es wurde erst kürzlich eröffnet und liegt mitten in der Natur an einem Fluss (den man bei Anreise einmal durchqueren muss - knöcheltief). So einen wunderschönen, friedlichen Ort habe ich selten gefunden. Die Eigentümer sprechen französisch, spanisch und englisch und kümmern sich um ihre Gäste mit einer unglaublichen Herzlichkeit. Das Essen ist fantastisch und wir immer individuell nach den Wünschen zubereitet. Wir wollten ursprünglich nur zwei Nächte bleiben und haben spontan auf fünf verlängert. Für Naturliebhaber 100% Empfehlung - ein magischer Ort, der keine Wünsche offen lässt!

8/10 Very good

Optisch sehr schönes, weitläufiges Hotel. Zimmer sehr groß mit großer Veranda. Die vierte Schlafmöglichkeit (Schlafcouch) ist extrem unbequem. Die schlecht beschilderte Zufahrt (wir sind erst im Dunklen angekommen) geht über enge, sandige und steile Wege mit 2 Flussdurchfahrten (davon eine breitere mit großen Steinen als Hindernis und sandigem Flussbett). Mit unserem Geländewagen war es ein Abenteuer, mit normalem PKW ist es wohl eher eine Katastrophe. Danach darf dann kostenlos geparkt werden. Bezahlt werden kann nur mit Bargeld; allerdings werden Devisen genommen und sehr fair umgerechnet.
