I expected a lot more for this money. Yes the location is beautiful but THAT'S ALL YOU GET!
It's better to find an accomodation nearby (at Los Naranjos) and walk here to enjoy the view.
For USD 150 I believe this hotel is terribly overpriced.
The facilities at the hotel are very poor. The strip of beach is filthy and needs to be cleaned up, plus it reeks of sewage.
Furthermore the food (which is included in the price) is very minimal. Fried rice, fried plantain and beetrood salad for dinner. And egg and toast for breakfast.
The lunchmenu consists of only a cheese and tomato Fajita. Drinks are limited to: beer, wine and cola.
How can an expensive hotel like this have such limited options?? I was expecting fruit juices, snacks and excellent food for this money? The barman at the bar (which was empty!) had a bored look at his face and was playing on his phone the entire evening
If the accomodation price was 50 USD I wouldn't have written this review but USD 150 is way too much for what you get.
Avoid yourself the dissapointment and book Aite Eco Hotel at Palomino. AMAZING hotel for USD 70. Stunning beach, excellent food and top quality service. Best hotel I have stayed at in Colombia.
Finca Barlovento, your management still has A LOT to learn.
