9.2 Excellent
Pros: Location, location. It's just a great place to stay with beach right in front of the hotel. But the best was the adjacent Los Angeles Beach just 5 minutes from the hotel. Nearly empty and really beautiful. Don't miss it! The staff was great and helpful: what you would expect from such a hotel. Also the selection of food, the quality and the quantity were great.
Cons: The rooms are a bit too empty. They are spacious which is great, but having an additional chair, a small table and maybe a carpet would make them much more comfortable. This could be an addition for the future.

Pros: The generosity and companionship of the staff, the love and care they took of the guests, the location, the food
Cons: Instructions on how to get to the location. Google maps is a bit off; one has to walk for 15-20 min up a mountain and cross a stream by foot or by a bridge to get there. It definitely adds to the romance!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: A wonderful stay. You're made to feel very welcome from the moment you arrive. Glorious setting, admittedly a little bit of a trek to get there. Excellent food in abundance. Thoroughly recommend.
Cons: Nothing to not like.

Pros: Nice food, nice cabin, great staff, amazing nature. Absolutely recommandable!!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I travelled with a friend. We chose Pikua lodge as we sought a peaceful location in a natural setting. Everything in the previous reviews is accurate ! Every morning we were served breakfast at our lodge - fresh fruit and juices, oats with almond and raisins and fresh eggs and coffee. The mini bar fridge had plenty of beer and soft drinks replenished every day at a very, very low cost. Thank you to Javier, Nina, Edith and Raphael for your wonderful attention during our visit. We had a lot of heavy rain in the afternoon and as we sat reading our books, looking out from our lodge Edith arrived with fresh popcorn to go with our beers! The little touches were great. We ordered in food on 2 of our 4 nights which was delicious paella and fish, all beautifully prepared and so reasonably priced. We ate in the restaurant of neighboring Cayena lodge one night and it was terrific - restaurant prices. Jason the local driver took us to do tubing down the Don Diego river led by guide Jonathan. It was a highlight not to be missed. We were the only ones in such surroundings, a natural habitat of birds, howling monkeys and iguana. Our arrival at the ocean and virgin beach left us speechless. This is not the place to stay if you want hot and cold running showers and restaurant and hotel accommodation. It is THE place if you want a tropical paradise that you dream of !!!! Definitely we shall return, there is so much more to explore in the region.
Cons: Nothing in the lodge it was perfect! It is true if it’s stormy, the sea has high waves but it’s great for jumping through them!

Pros: Nice clean bungalows with fam provided (and necessary!)

9.2 Excellent

The hosts were amazing in providing for any information and assistance. The place is magical and you should spent some time just to hang around and take everythjng in. Thank you!
Cons: Nothing comes to mind. Naturally, a little of a commute to get there but totally worth it

Pros: The hostel is good fit to the sorrouding nature. The restaurant serves really good fish and the personnel is very kind. This hostel is a perfect choice to visit parque tayrona from el zaino (the owner took us from the hostel to the entrance of the parque, it's a 5 min drive).
Cons: Wifi doesn't work very well, so we suggest to do any booking before getting there.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It is like staying at a resort surrounded by big plants, swimming pool, hammocks, sitting areas where one can relax. The food at the restaurant is quite good, with choices for breakfast. A free shuttle to Tayrona Park in the morning at 8am. Washing machine is free to use. But expect to wait a bit as everyone wants to use this service. Bedroom and bathroom are very clean. They change my towel and sheets after only 2 nights of staying. The hostel is in the nature, so expect to see iguanas, little lizards, mosquitoes, cockroaches, and even centipedes in common area and even in the bedrooms.
Cons: No internet access from the room. A bit of traffic noise in the morning when trucks or motorcycles pass by at a high speed in the main street outside of the hostel.

Pros: hostal closely located to parque tayrona near main road, but we were not bothered by it the cabins are made of wood so you can hear a lot of animals, which is nice to wake up with (but bring your earplugs for sure) staff was ok we had a good stay, but it did not exceeded our expectations
Cons: first day we ordered a margharita cocktail which was more tequila than anything else. not good we wanted to order a cocktail on the 2nd day, but no cocktails were available anymore food was ok there is indeed a bath of stone in the bathroom but as there is no hot water I wonder what the purpose is of this
5.4 Okay
Pros: The expansiv Food has Quality

For example a small beer is anywhere in Colombia around 3000 Pesos whereas in this Hostel they charge you 5000 pesos. Maincourses Go up to 45000. Like all the other Hostels on this buisy Road the rooms are located right at the passing Trucks and Busses.

Tayrona Paradise - Los Naranjos - Bedroom

9.1 Excellent (195 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Located in Santa Marta, Tayrona Paradise is within a 15-minute drive of Tayrona National Natural Park and Cristal Beach. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. A shuttle from the hotel to the airport is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Tayrona Paradise is a great way to feel like you’re in the jungle but with the right amenities to make you feel comfortable! The food was delicious and it was only a 10 minute bus ride to the park. The property even had some trails to explore and it’s just a great place to relax and enjoy the atmosphere! Everyone there was so kind and accommodating and helpful! We really had a wonderful stay, better than expected!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Staff was truly amazing! Always there for questions (it helps to know some Spanish). The owner even organized a ride to our next hotel and saved us a lot of cost and effort ordering a cab from Santa Marta. Close to Tayrona Park entry (5 min bus ride). Nice gardens. Moskito nets not only over the bed but also at the windows.
Cons: Mosquito net was a bit dirty, but the owner promised to look after it when we told him at checkout. You have to be clear about the fact that you’re at the edge of a tropical forest. This goes along with the occasional cockroach and other insects around and sometimes in the room as well. But as told before there is a net around the bed and at the windows which limits insects in the room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice location, eco friendly
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing accommodation, we slept in one of the “cheaper” rooms but actually liked it most. They were open so you could hear the rain and the animals around, it was made out of beautiful wood. Everything was nice and tidy. Dinner was good and breakfast as well, nothing special. The owner is super nice and helps you with everything he can. We left our luggage there for a two days trip to tayrona which was super easy going.
Cons: When we booked, we got a message from the location which described the way to the hotel. It sounded super complicated - which it actually isn’t. It’s very very easy to find the way and the bus driver from the route from Santa Marta also knows where they need to drop you off. From the street it takes maybe 5 minutes to the hotel. Be aware that booking.com says the property handles all payments but it actually doesn’t. You need to pay at the location.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautifully designed cabins, friendly staff, comfy bed

Pros: The location is ok-ish near the park entry, rooms are spacious. Stuff is ok
Cons: The hotel is a typical example for over investment in infrastructure that subsequently cannot be maintained. Facilities are worn out, there is mold both in the pool and rooms, the hotel has an awkward smell and food is questionable at best. We were shocked about the difference between great reviews and very bad and overprices experience. Wouldnt recommend at all, we changed after one day to a place nearer to beach and national park which was mich better

Pros: Breakfasts, varieties of birds on property, canopy bed, free shuttle to Tayrona Nacional Parque, the beach on the property, the pool

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The ambience in the tropical forest is fantastic. I liked the eco style of the whole complex. If you like the natural forest world and observing the the tropical birds this is a great place to come.
Cons: Nothing to dislike.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: This is an unforgettable experience. Stay in amazing bungalows in what feels like the middle of the jungle. The tranquility at night is a rare experience in Colombia. Waking up to the birdsong in the morning is just perfect.
Cons: The trek to our cabin was a solid 5-10 minute walk from the property entrance (and you feel every one of those minutes in the humidity of the area). The service in the restaurant was very slow and some of the restaurant service staff were a bit rude. The menu choice was limited. I had the impression that the hotel takes advantage of the captive market (once you're on-site you're unlikely to eat elsewhere due to the distance).
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Quite, packed with green every where you look at, rooms are ver comfortable, hot water is an amazing treat. Food is fairly ok
Cons: Rooms are very far away from restaurant. They could have coffee makers in each room

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Location is amazing even though a bit far from the beach but it's not a problem if you don't mind walking and are not looking for something by the beach. It is very quiet and peaceful. The pool is awesome. The rooms are very clean and can almost be considered as luxury given the circumstances: lost in the middle of the jungle.
Cons: The food was bit overpriced but it's pretty much everywhere like that in the Caribbean coast of Colombia.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Such a cool place to stay. Really nice staff and owner, super friendly and helpful. The pool is awesome and the location of the houses in the middle of nowhere is just perfect. The beach is still easily accessible after a short walk
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Simply Fantastic ! I cannot say enough good things about this lovely haven nestled in the hills. If you like off the beaten track (a good 20 minute hike uphill, alternatively jump on a 'moto', it will cost 8k but remember that 8k goes to support a family) this is the place to come to. A prefect place to come to before or after walking Ciudad perdida. With jungle all around this place is perfect if you just want to be in nature. There are a number of walks all around (the house will organise a guide) This accomadation is spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, good food, a swimming pool, good hammocks & overall very well run by the lovliest mother & daughter team mamma Anna & Monica who speaks very good english. This accomadation is not 5 star luxury, it is for sure 5 star basic Colombian accomadation in the very heart of nature. I loved it ! PS find the biggest bamboo tree you have ever seen.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: I really enjoyed this place! It is quiet and was a perfect place to relax after La Ciudad Perdida hike. I would have happily stayed for some more days. You can mind your own business and chill out by the lovely pool. Total relaxation. I slept so well.
Cons: The hotel is at the end of a road so good to consult the hotel on how to get there. Someone took me and my small luggage on a motorbike taxi from the crossroad as the normal taxi wouldn't drive all the way. However, the road is suitable for bigger cars and that's why getting out to the airport was no issue at all. At the same time, this remoteness was a plus! There was no traffic whatsoever, just super chill and quiet all in all. The restaurant is pretty basic but provided enough nutrition. The staff speaks only Spanish but they use google translate on their phones if things get complicated. The wifi is a bit unreliable and there is no signal otherwise (or at least not on my phone).
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location is ideal for a quiet, relaxing time. It is a gorgeous spot with a small, clean pool which we basically had to ourselves during our stay. The food is made fresh to order from a quite small selection of local foods. It is a 30-40 minute walk to beautiful playa de los cocos, lovely views and big waves (so not really a beach for a swim!) I wished we had stayed longer!
Cons: The hotel is about 30-40 mins walk up a dirt track or you can take a motorbike taxi. The hotel help arrange these once you're there but we didn't see any down at the main road when we arrived! The closest beach is not good for swimming but lovely for a walk and has a couple of bars / food places.
7.5 Good
Pros: Peaceful and quiet nice place to stay and they have a restaurant nothing fancy but good homemade food and you can use a credit card
Cons: It’s 1.5km from the highway on a 4x4 road about 1/2hour walk up and down hills
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, the staff and food were amazing! Great value for money!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed taking motos or hiking into the beautiful kept grounds. There is a nice kitchen we wished we had brought more of our own food. The owner is the sweetest. Most of the staff was absolutely lovely.
Cons: The restaurant is the only food close by and it's a bit pricey. It could use some more variety.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The refreshing pool, the staff is super nice, the hammocks... just perfect to relax. Wifi in the pool area is working quite good (not in the rooms) A quiet house 10min by motobike from the main road (ask the bus driver to drop you at Los Cocos and there ask someone to take you with their motobike 7000 COP). They offer food but there is also a kitchen you can use to cook your own food

Cons: Facilities are probably 20-30 older than they should and are in need of urgent refurbishment. The owner should take care of this. Totally not value for money compared to nearby properties.

Pros: The location and atmosphere of the hotel was absolutely magical. The service is of great quality as much as the food is. But what really made the trip special for us was the staff, Paola was absolutely nice, efficient and sweet. Definitely recommend!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place is a gem! The location is unique, you can sit and have a delicious homecooked breakfast or dinner with the sea breeze in the open patio and go to sleep in your spacious room with the sound of the breaking waves in your ears. Sounds unreal? It's not! It's all true, and even better than the guidebooks say. Lovely Paola will help you with anything you might need and don't forget to ask for John to take you on a trip to one of the highlights around the park.
Cons: Everything was fine!

Pros: Thank you Orna!! So kind, fun to talk to and thoughtful, everything. Great locals tips and amazing, I mean amazing, home cooked meals! Easy check-in and great room en suite! Farm dogs and cats are sweet and friendly too!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had an fantastic time here, a real home from home experience. Orna and her husband were amazing hosts. Our room was very comfortable and the optional breakfast, lunch and dinners were some of, if not the best food we have eaten in Colombia. Huge portions, very tasty and different every day. There are a few kittens, puppies, chickens and lots of tortoises to keep you entertained. The pool was very welcome to cool down and sit by too. Located about 25 min walk to the Calabazo entrance of Tayrona National Park and the shops. Getting there by bus was easy, it will stop right outside if you tell them Calabazo, Finca La Gordita. They also looked after our rucksacks whilst we visited Tayrona for few days. After an exhausting hike out of Tayrona, we ended up staying a few more days to recover and rest. Perfect.
Cons: The pool was a great addition and lovely to cool down in but could have been a little cleaner however this is a working finca so is to be expected. It wasn't a problem and certainly didn't stop us from swimming every day.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: If you're planning a trip to Tayrona you have to stay here. Such an amazing host - made us lunch and even let us shower after our stay (we left our luggage with her while in Tayrona). So nice to have a delicious home cooked meal too. She spoke English which was cool. Big pool outside and good AC. Don't expect WiFi because is none anywhere so not really a negative point. Can grab a bus to both park entrances from right outside. Highly recommend
Cons: Nada ;)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The host is so super friendly we loved her! The food she made was unbelievable! Really delicious! The place is just nice, a big pool, super cute dogs and animals and really great! We loved it

Pros: Easy access
Cons: When I came back the internet stopped working. They closed up the doors and went inside. I couldn't call them and I know they didn't want to be disturbed so I just left.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We loved our stay here at Fin a la Gordita and we are sad to leave! The setting is great with lovely views of the jungle, nice pool and above all amazing hosts, Orna and Astulio looked after us and cooked us some amazing meals, after a long day travelling and one walking it was just what we needed! She also helped us getting a ticket for the National Park as we didn’t book in advance which saved us wasting day. Our stay here was just what we needed and we will miss it a lot, especially the dogs! Thank you!

7.5 Good
Pros: Every comfortable room and interesting design built amongst boulders. Great little bar and restaurant and staff very good. Close to Tayrona NP and easy to get to by private car or public transport.
Cons: While a good spot for accessing Tayrona the hotel is very close to highway and with road bumps to slow traffic at night the many passing trucks have to slow down using air brakes which made it quite noisy til early hours of morning.

Pros: Very nice and friendly! We even had monkeys. The food was good and breakfast delicious!
Cons: Lovely place, only the (noise) of the traffic. Not too bad!

Pros: Great location, about 2 minutes by bus (or 20 minute walk) to the entrance of Tayrona. The staff are lovely and the garden setting is tranquil.
6.7 Good
Pros: The environment is beautiful with all the greenery, the pool and stones and beautiful stairs. Good location for Tayrona park. Awesome jungle huts with great views. You have to be able to walk some stairs though (our hut was 90 stairs up).
Cons: Staff was really disappointing. All not seeming to be very happy and the service was terribly slow. The location was perfect for Tayrona park (only 5 minutes by public bus which leaves basically every second and if you wave it stops right in front of the Hostal), but when going out for dinner there is nothing around so you have to eat at the hostal. Food was actually surprisingly good, although choices are few and service is terribly slow.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: -The setting is lovely, on a hillside in the jungle. -The receptionist, Brandon, is friendly and helpful -Great food at the restaurant.
Cons: Only one real issue with the place: throughout the day and evening they had the TV on really quite loud in the restaurant area. Because that area is open, the sound wafted throughout the common areas, even reaching some of the rooms, which was really annoying. Part of the appeal of this place was the sense of being surrounded by nature, birdsong etc - and when you've got dubbed action movies blaring out over the TV, it really undermines that.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The location excellent, staff really nice and breakfast typical columbian. Perfect for a stay in the park
Cons: Fan in room could do with an. Update
6.3 Good
Pros: The location in the park was very beautiful.
Cons: The room is very basic, a bit too basic for the price we had to pay. Also the facilities were limited. Also the pick up point for the shuttle vans in unhandy as they were quite a lot of the times full and we had to walk.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was great! It is a real treat to stay in the park and there is a shuttle that brings you to and from the main hikes. The facilities are beautiful and very clean. Staff are all extremely nice and helpful with anything you need
Cons: Nothing. Everything was perfect
6.3 Good
Pros: The location inside the park is good. Walking to beaches is long, but possible, even before the park officially opens. This was the main reason for me to stay there. The surroundings of the hotel are also beautiful.
Cons: I hope this is taken as constructive critique by hotel: - The breakfast was very minimal and basic -> provide some jam and some more toast in addition to the selected breakfast, this would already improve things. - The food in general was sometimes good, sometimes bad -> since not all was bad I think there's room for improvement by just trying to keep the performance in the kitchen consistent - The service was not very fast -> drinks should be served faster, this makes waiting for the meals much more manageable - Some of the Staff (not all) were not very helpfull. I'd say they do the minimum that's needed, but I was used to much better from all the other hotels we stayed at in Colombia - Finally, the rooms have thin walls. I sometimes felt like in a dorm -> I guess the only thing that helps here, if the hotel is not fully booked, try to put the guests in rooms that are not directly next to each other. Would have helped on our first evening
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice place and staff surrounded by beautiful nature.
6.0 Good
Pros: The hotel is near from the entrance so it's easy to get there walking. They maintain a nice garden and the overall is a really beautiful place, with great views from the bedrooms and very quiet.
Cons: We had a not so great experience in this hotel because when we made the checkin we weren't correctly informed. They had a light cut because of a storm (which you can expect in a natural park, of course) and they didn't tell us that the generator was right under our room, it sounded like a huge motor, so it was not until the evening,when they offered us to change room (at about 10pm, which is pretty late in Tayrona). So they got a new room far from the generator (still could be heard though), it was bigger and nicer room, and we were supposed to be more confortable but the truth is that the bed was really unconfortable. If we had paid for that room I would be very pissed. also the hotel and bar was kind of lonely, there was nobody around to ask...the waiters were nice but we were already disappointed. If I went back now I would have stayed at the campings at the beach.
