This may be the most beautiful setting on the coast, located on a virtually private beach AND overlooking a large lake and mountains. What more could you ask for? Alligators? Barlovento has those too, in the lake! There are two types of cabins - the original Barlovento Cabanas with windowless 'cubbies' perched over the beach. The Maloko cabins are more...

This place is truly a dream. It was such an incredible experience. The setting and staff were top notch. I loved the privacy and the other guests that were staying there were fantastic. Had such a great time. A true piece of paradise

This is a beautiful place with stunning beaches, a great vibe, really friendly hosts, sunrise and sunset views, delicious food... We stayed one night in Cabana where the room hangs over the sea and 2 nights in Maloka- both ate fantastic and we'd highly recommend anyone to visit. You can do day trips to Park Tayrona easily and visit another...

Adored the property - it is convenient to Tayrona park, romantic and rustic (no AC or hot water, just crashing waves and mosquito nets), and meals were delicious (dinner and breakfast included). We were in the cabana, which is right on the beach and our ocean-facing room had an incredible view. I've docked a star for sub-par service, however. It...

Really an awesome place. Worth the trip. We stayed in the Maloka with a view of the ocean. Great views, great food and the staff was friendly and helpful. Leave your phone at home, bring a book, and Finca Barlavento is the perfect place to relax.

This place would be perfect for some people, but probably awful for some. The setting cannot be topped. The house is situated right on the beach, with the waves literally crashing under the deck. On the other side of the house is a river and Parque Tayrona, so that 3 sides of the house are surrounded by water. It is...

As advertised in the guidebook, quite possibly the nicest location in Colombia! From booking through to departure the staff at Barlovento were helpful and quick to answer any questions or concerns we had. The view and location is stunning. If you are thinking of going then look no further, this pace has it all. From excellent food, stunning views and...

This is like heaven on earth, and you will have a hard time finding similar. We stayed at the open rooms on top of the building, and it feels like heaven! The first night the sound of the waves made it a little bit hard to sleep, so if you have a hard time sleeping if it's not quiet, earplugs...

Book it without a second thought. This might be the best place I've ever been. the view from my room was breathtakingly beautiful. The facilities are perfect and the staff are friendly. Food was delicious and there was actually good wifi available.

I am in love with this place! I stayed one night in Maloka and one night in the cabaña, and they were both just incredible. I would say Maloka is more comfortable, more modern, the cabaña is a very unique experience, but rustic. It is also easier to socialize at Maloka if you happen to get lucky with the most...

“Barlovento Cabana with the waves crashing beneath you, or the more comfortable Maloka. Request a river view at the Maloka.”
