This hotel has a great location in terms of being a short walk to the beach and having a great view of the bay. The staff (particularly Rafael) were super nice and professional, as well. That's where the positives end. The downside was that my bed was FILTHY. I don't need much from a hotel, but clean sheets is on...

Thanks a lot for taking the time to share your experience with other travellers. It is a shame to hear that you had a bad experience in our hotel. We, at Hotel Bahia Taganga, have strict procedures that all the maids have to follow in terms of cleanliness of the rooms and sheets and towels replacement. I´ll go through these...

The hotel has an old part and a newer extension. Do NOT take a room in the older part, they are shabby, run down and totally overpriced. Our room was an old terrace hastily converted into a room with run-down windows that do not close. The bathroom floor was uneven and when showering the water would flood the room and...

First of all, please accept our most sincere apologies for your bad experience in our hotel. Just before the season we refurbished all the toilets in the first and second floor, and as you were the first customer to use it you discover the huge mistake the contractor made when finishing the toilet floor in the room you stayed in...

By Taganga standards this hotel looks very good at first sight. But the experience of staying there certainly doesn't live up to the good first impression: at the bottom of the stairs that lead to the hotel is a garbage dump. Granted the pick up happens frequently, possibly daily, but the smell is very noticeable on the way up to...

if you choose to come to Taganga this is one of the better choices (judging based on whats available). The village itself is a mix of ethnic fisherman vibe with lots of busy local restaurants, street vendors and beach cafes. It is very ran down, with occasional garbage smell and excruciating loud music during nights. The hotel is pretty with...

Reviewed 5 September 2015 via mobile

Traveling alone, Taganga seemed a bit sketchy to me down by the bay (especially with all the dudes selling drugs and walking around aimlessly at night) but this hotel up on the cliffs makes up for any bad vibes with its clean rooms, friendly service and incredible terraces. Literally can't be anywhere better to stay in Taganga, and it's pretty...

My wife and I stayed five nights whilst exploring the beautiful coast and mountains around Tagana and we absolutely loved this hotel.

I went to this hotel with some friends on our spring break. It was amazing, the staff is extremely friendly, the view from the restaurant and the pool is very beautiful. If you want to stay in a relaxing place with great attention, this is the best option.
