Hey,
its a family run hostel but they call it a hotel! The night with the food was really nice , nice pool and the staff is really friendly ! They have only one dorm but they dont care about it like the owner said! You could see that ! Not a nice room and too expensive! Probably the most expensive place in town and not the qualitiy of a hotel! I stayed because friends already booked. You can go on a tour with the owner to minca etc but there is drinking and driving involved! Talking about the driver! Dont recomment it! Also he knew I only speak a little Spanish he didnt speak English also he could! He didnt care at all!

Room Tip: Not the dorm!

Taganga is really dry at the moment so it was nice to have a pool. Atmosphere wise it felt like we were the only ones at times. However I think we confused this place for a Hostel which it seems it is no longer.

The host was nice and helpful, although we were never offered the free breakfast each morning as mentioned when we first arrived. This annoyed my girlfriend a bit as we spent extra money on breakfast at restaurants each morning.

The room was simple and about right for the price. You may get woken up early by the rooster next door and kids playing, but I am a light sleeper.

We had a great stay at the Bayview Hotel. Our room was simple, but nice and clean with an en-suite, AC and two fans. The room was set around a nice walled courtyard which was great for hanging out. There is a lovely cool pool (pretty deep even at the shallow end, so perhaps not so good for small children), a small bar with TV (unmanned while we were there), and some free game tables (pool & table tennis).

The place also has a communal kitchen which can be used by guests. It was extremely well equipped so it was great to be able to cook properly while we were there. Other facilities include good wifi, valuables lockers, a book exchange, and luggage storage (which is very helpful if you're planning to visit Tayrona National Park). The staff were friendly and helpful.

All in all great value for money. My only suggestion would be to get some reclining loungers for the pool area :)

Soviet-era style. “This place is a dump,” my boyfriend said. While the staff was very friendly, and they did laundry for us very quickly and at a reasonable rate, we were told we’d have an en suite room. Instead, our bathroom was outside our room.
Bathroom and room were dirty, nails and wires hanging out of the wall, poor locks. Very ugly. We were excited to relax someplace after our Ciudad Perdida trek, but sadly, it was not here.

Me and my friend stayed here for one quick night. The staff was very informative for any question we threw their way. They were also incredibly friendly. We stayed in a private room which was very comfortable with great fans to keep us cool all night. The hostel has everything to offer: pool, kitchen, tv, pool table, Internet room, wifi, ect. I would suggest anyone to stay here for a good atmosphere and helpful staff.
