We loved our stay here. The rooms are stunning and the beach is lovely. Mario's customer service was exceptional as he was always checking in to make sure we were satisfied. The only small issues were the patchy wifi and they were slightly short staffed at the time we were there. That aside, we would certainly stay again.

Located in an amazing area this place has potential to offer an unforgettable experience. According to the price you would expect some things or services but in this place nothing is granted. Here a highlight of things that surprised me: 1) Terrible and unfriendly stuff. The worst is the hotel manager who does not take responsibility over anything happening in...

Arrival is a few steps downward from the coastal highway. The premises are between this highway and the beach, a narrow strip of vegetation. We had the room Esperanza. It is big, has one doublebed and 4 additional beds placed alongside the walls, that means for our couple more than enough space…you can place your bags on top of those...

Way too expensive for the bad service and product that they offer. The food is simple and tasteless. How can you serve pasta and meat sauce when you've just next to the sea? The worst part was the service that tried to charge me for everything even things I hadn't ordered. Will not be returning and advice everyone to avoid.

We were a big group of 28 people from all over the world, celebrating a post-wedding trip (group honeymoon?) in Colombia. I cannot even describe what a pleasant and relaxing stay we had at this ecohotel! First of all, the location is amazing and took our breath away! The water was excellent for swimming and the beach was beautiful! The...

We stayed one night in Play La Roca during our roundtrip in Colombia with our three children aged 7, 5 and 3. The location of this hotel is absolutely stunning. It's locked between the road and the beach in lovely green surroundings. Although it must be close to the road, we have not heard anything during our stay. The beach...

For what it is--a true eco hotel (maloka-style rooms, gorgeous natural setting, no AC, no hot water)--this place deserves 5 stars. Worried about amenities? Content yourself with a great massage and the hypnotic THUNDER of the surf and forget about anything that requires electricity. With the constant sea breeze, I felt no need for air conditioning (the rooms have fans),...

Had a fantastic time at this eco hotel. The staff were accommodating and the food was fresh and tasty. The huts are on the private beach which is clean with chairs and loungers ready for the guests to use. The complex is very quiet and the rooms are clean and comfy. Getting to town is a short bus ride or...

Excellent place to stay and relax! The Eco-hotel has everything you need to have a wonderful time away of noise and crowd. Beautiful meals, comfortable rooms, friendly staff. The beach is nice and clean. You wont see other tourists than the hotel's guests. Although waves are quite strong you can seat and have a nice view of the sunset. Would...

It was a wonderful get a way, with a special love from many years ago. The right choice for the both of us. First, it is an Eco-Hotel, a little on the nature side. as in no air-conditioning and NO TV. there is electric, as in a fan and lights. It can get a little warm while sleeping. BUT, you...
