This sizeable hostel/resort is located right on the beach and a bed in a dorm room comes at an affordable price. Literally none of the staff spoke English which I found slightly bizarre, given the fact that a sizeable number of their guests didn't speak Spanish. Service was rather slow plus the place lacked the traveller spirit that turns an...

The place is amazing. The restaurant is very good and the prices are according to the food and taste. The hostel looks fantastic with grass, coconuts and a quiet and relaxing environment. I recommend this place totally for everyone.

Ok we went to this place and asked what the longustina was. Was told its lobster, prawns came out followed by the bill plus tax for lobster! Asked the waiter a second time to make sure we were on the same page. He seemed embarrassed for the place that they had serviced us the wrong food. I think it was...

Although we didnt stay here overnight, the service and the genuine friendliness really made our day. The food was supurb. And although we had some problems with our creditcards to pay the bill at night, they came up with a great solution.

We've stayed a couple of nights at la finca and really enjoyed the experience. The staff is kind and the infrastructure (toilets, rooms) very clean. The spot is ideally located on the beach so you can take your breakfast in front of the sea. The surf option is quite nice as well and we had fun trying to stand on...

For the price we were excited to have a nice clean private room at an affordable price, it was to be a nice break from dorms as we are on a long backpacking trip. We weren't disappointed. Beautiful grounds, clean room, nice bathroom. All is well... until the ants turned up. Our room was covered. In the bed, our bags,...

We stayed here for 3 nights In a 5 bed dorm. The location is great, right on the beach but as a backpacker on a tight budget you can get a much nicer place for the same price. There was no WiFi when we asked, breakfast is not included and there is no kitchen to cook your own food. We...

Amazing place to stay. We stayed in a 5 people dormitory and it was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Toilets and showers were very clean too. I liked the food and the staff is really friendly. To get there from the Santa Marta airport you can take a bus from the airport to the market for 1500 COP...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finca Escondida is the ideal spot for beach lovers, surfers, and sports enthusiasts. It is directly on the 6km long sandy beach of Palomino - still one of the best kept secrets among travelers on Columbia's sunny Caribbean coastline.We have suites, rooms, dorms, hammocks, and a lovely space for camping. Additionally, we offer a great variety of food and cocktails at our restaurant - including savory crepes, refreshing salads, and delicious seafood.There are good waves for surfers and those still planning to learn. Chillandsurf's team offers surf lessons and surfboard rental at a reasonable price. And be sure to enjoy an afternoon on the beach playing frisbee or beach volleyball. If you are looking to slow down, shady, idyllic spots on the Finca grounds call for chilling, reading, or simply hanging out and letting the day pass by. Just lay back and relax between the palm trees, mango, orange, and lime groves on Finca Escondida and be lulled by the sounds of the sea. ... more   less
