If you're looking for a quite beach getaway in a beautiful and undeveloped area along Colombia's Caribbean coast, this might be a good choice. The rooms are very nice and the food is quite good as well. Nature lovers will be in heaven here. Tropical trees pulsate all day with the raucous sounds of vibrant colored birds. What I found...

I don't usually write reviews but the staff members of Merecumbe deserve more than my time and these lines. This hotel is a gem hidden on the outskirts of The Sierra Nevada. The well kept grounds and the unique architecture of its rooms made me feel that I was part of one of Gabriel Garcia Marquez tales. To me, Merecumbe...

I loved this quiet hotel on the beach. The food was excellent, the beach is long and walkable. The surf is a little rough. The herbal massage was so good I thought about getting another one the next day and I don't usually get massages while on vacation.

This hotel is located on a long walkable beach. The food is excellent and the staff is very helpful. My room had an overhead fan that cooled it down for a great nights sleep.

Had an amazing night at Merecumbe Hotel. We enjoyed the fire pit on the night of arrival and a relaxing beach time the next morning. The food was splendid, drinks fresh and refreshing, and desserts, ice creams in particular, were on point. We were especially impressed with the attentiveness of the staff and their accommodation to our needs and requests....

The place was really peaceful (few rooms) and beautiful. The bungalows were lovely: bed comfortable, shower outside and sofa outside too. A mosquito net protects the bedroom. Futhermore, the hotel provide card games, board games. You can play football and beach-volley. The restaurant is really good, there is something for everyone: meet, salads, fish, cocktails etc But there are lots...

Located about 20 minutes nearby Tayrona park, Merecumbe hotel is a high range and secluded peaceful retreat. Rooms are beautifully decorated individual thatched houses. Food is prepared on site, organic, fresh and gorgeous. Good variety of food: meat, fish, lots of veggies. Breakfast is excellent as well. Just make sure to order well in advance. On the downside, the sea...

One of the best hotel experiences in our recent trips, wonderful place, by a spendid beach, extremely nice personnel, great food and well located for trekking in the Tayrona Park. Each room is a typical local cabin with high luxury finishing, bathroom is located outside but nicely isolated, so you fell being in the jungle while having a shower. Great...

Merecumbe is about 90mins from Santa Marta and tucked away off the main road between villages so is fairly isolated. We stayed in Tortuga which accommodated 3 adults and 3 children comfortably. The echohabs are well designed, simple and elegant. There are celling fans that kept us cool enough. The outside shower is fantastic (even if cold water takes some...

The huts were wonderful as were the sounds of a symphony of birds combined with the gentle sound of the ocean. Staff were excellent as well as local food. You need to know that there is no a/c and it feels a little sticky. Also there is no hot water for showers...still a great experience. Very harmonious with lovely natural...
