Best 2 days in cartagena
More variety of snacks and even fruit or icecream at the honesty bar might be nice
Olga was the best imaginable host! Our room was beyond romantic, almost magical. The service and food were great! Highly recommend just going for one set of hammocks to another and relax your day away in this gorgeous place! We took the tuk tuk to playa Blanca which is a quick fun ride and enjoying a peaceful swim (we went after 4 when all the vendors are headed home)

Paradise home away from home
I loved every moment at this place, but if you hate quiet and falling asleep to the bird songs and the sound of waves gently lapping at the shore isn't your thing, stay in the city. It's very close to Playa Blanca so you can have your white sand Caribbean beaches too.
Olga is the most kind and welcoming host! The property is beautiful, peaceful and quiet. The rooms are clean, bright and airy and it might be impossible not to relax in this place. I was the only guest at the hotel the night I stayed and they took excellent care of me. The food is fresh and delicious. It was sprinkling rain in the afternoon, so I was reading in the hammock in my and one of the girls brought me the best mojito I've ever had. In the morning I visited the stunning bird sanctuary and went for a paddle on the bay with the kayak. Loved the outdoor showers. Would absolutely recommend this place.

Be careful, this a trap! See my review and pics
Be carful, this is a trap! The pics on Booking.com and on the website of the hotel are photoshopped. The rooms are old, delapidated and dirty. Worn out dirty towels etc. There is no hot water in the bathroom. Cold shower only. Moreover, there are A LOT of Moskitos, flies and other insects everywhere (even fleas in the bed), so that you can’t stay at the beach even during the day without being bitten very badly. I would not pay for this accommodation more that 20 usd a night.

A slice of paradise just outside of Cartagena.
Wish we could have spent more time there :)
Great staff, who were really welcoming and helpful. Fantastic location.

Good place to relax in a hammock!
It seemed lunches were the same items repeated, which may be fine for some people. We didn't feel very welcome after staying for lunch after our check-out time, so maybe consider going to the Aviary or another activity if you want to stay in Baru after check-out time.
The ladies who cooked and served meals were very sweet. The location was perfect for relaxing and we loved the hammocks by our room and the water's edge. We had help arranging transport, which was very much appreciated! Communication before our stay was easy. We loved the resident dogs :)

Juan and his staff made everything perfect. This is an incredible jewel, and it far exceeded our dreams. The place was clean, tranquil, and inviting. The food was good, and the atmosphere was perfect after four days in Cartagena. Our best recommendation.

Entrance impossible to find and instructions not sharp enough. Dinner disappointing.
Management was rather penny pinching

Beautiful place - perfect to relax
The only thing we missed was some kind of snackbar as there are no shops or cafes nearby.
Very beautiful place with a lot of love for details. The beach is beautiful and quiet. The food delicious.

The rooms are very rustic, with bathrooms exposed to the outside and no way to secure the rooms. Don't expect luxury, or you will be disappointed.
This property is quite isolated and very calm. Juan was very welcoming and helpful - we really enjoyed talking with him and he helped a lot with arrangements for transport and activities. The food is simple but well cooked and good. We had great fish one day for lunch. Meals are served family style so you get to meet and talk with other guests (there are not many). Beds are good and the hammocks throughout the property are very comfortable, too. One of the activities proposed is a 6 hour boat trip around the islands with snorkeling, lunch, and beach time - this is a great way to see and enjoy the area. The overall vibe is very friendly and relaxing, great for a few days of rest & relaxation.

A nice very quiet get away after four days in Cartagena.
The lovely bathroom is cold water only, not really a big issue when the air temp is 80+ almost all the time.
Olga, the owner, is a world class hostess, and a lovely person. She makes a 110% effort to take care of her guests' needs. Our room was lovely and romantic, and spotlessly clean.

Little angle of paradise
If you want white beaches and luxury rooms, look somewhere else.
It's a special experience: exotic birds waking you up, a private beach resembling those of the movies and complete, total relax. The environment makes it easy for you to connect with the other guests. And the food is ridiculously good!!

A truly charming experience. The comfort and beauty of the property go hand to hand w/Olga’s sympath
Beach at property
Olga, her friends and family; the welcoming feeling was all around.

Great, but could be even greater with a little extra effort
Given that the location is so remote, and you have no other options for meals in walking distance, a bit more effort re food & beverages would have been nice. Investing a little bit more into variety, and presentation would make this place even more remarkable. Please bear in mind that this is complaining on a very high level. We loved our stay there overall.
It’s a great place to get away from it all. The scene is pure idyllic and peaceful. Our room was lovely and nicely decorated. The staff is friendly and all recommendations were accurate and worked out nicely, in particular the boat tour. Given that it’s a small resort, it feels very personalized. The free internet option worked for basics.

The privacy is really good

Perfect place to relax at the sea in quiet hammocks in the shade, lovely food and all decorated with much taste and attention to details. Thanks to Juan and his family, the place feels like home from the very first minute. It was very easy to organize a wonderful boat trip to the nearby islands for snorkelling in cristal clear waters. If you are looking for a place to unwind in beautiful nature, this is the place to go. Many thanks for everything!

Playa Manglares is not to be missed - and neither is Olga!
Olga and her staff make you feel like you are family staying in their private home. Nothing could have been better. Olga greets you at your taxi with open arms, like she's been expecting you for months! Although we had originally booked a triple to accommodate our 24 son, she was not booked and gave him his own villa (at no cost)! The meals were amazing- fresh fish caught just hours before. i was not feeling well, due to food I had eaten elsewhere, and she made me special food. While resting in the afternoon, a lovely staff member came in to check on me, gently put up the netting around the bed and "tucked me in." It was better than home! The facilities are beautiful. We laid in our hammocks for most of the day overlooking the bay, reading books. I've never felt so relaxed. Nothing could have been better (except my stomach, of course :) Thank you Olga. You and your staff are like gold!
