The only great thing is the view from the terrace. The cabana: (we were staying in number 3) -no sound insulation (you hear the crazy thumping music from surrounding bars throughout the night, no good if you need a good night's sleep) -no wifi!!! (You have to go up to the common area!) -the shower tub (even though the cabanas...

Stayed here for 3 nights with my girlfriend and then an additional night before we flew to Medellin. The location is idillic with all the cabañas facing out toward the ocean on the hillside, catching the amazing sunsets (and thunderstorms for us). The cabañas themselves were really nice: clean and comfy with good a/c and shower. Best feature was the...

We stayed at Hotel Cactus for 4 nights. The view is fantastic. Very comfortable beds. Good breakfast. Loved the hammock on the terrace. Everyone was very helpful and we had nice towels. Would stay here again.

Opened 2008. Just few bungalows but excellent. Quite cheap. Wonderful panorama, away from the crowdy beach, few minutes walking to the sea. Best place to stay in Taganga. No advertising around, just ask. Whatever you need providend by wonderful Pierine.
