Near Santa Marta Colombia there are many big hotels and Eco hotels but this one has a bit of both- we loved it.
The family have built around ten big round thatched-roofed cabins each with an outside bathroom - the father is some kind if industrial designer so literally everything from the locks to the lamps is lovingly designed in local materials- high ceilinged rooms are naturally cool, beds comfy but the real highlight is the amazing location- mountains on your left swamp on your right and huge empty white sandy beach to sit on - no pool but lots of seaside hammocks in hand-built sun shelters.
Finally- the FOOD - the daughter is an enthusiastic gourmet chef and she serves up a small but DELICIoUS menu of Colombian modern fusion food- and rich delicious smoothies and fresh juices.
I have never felt more chilled - id say it's a honeymoon destination which welcomes bird watchers and those just looking to chill! Caution: Beach has big breakers so not suitable for unsupervised toddlers.
