5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The property is beautiful and the rooms have lovely views. I enjoyed reading in the hammock and looking out at the mountains. The staff is incredible and very helpful. However, the food is just ok. Breakfast is included and it is very basic. I also stayed next to an area where the staff was working and experienced a little more noise. For example, they did laundry until 9pm and starting before 8am, which was distruptive. Overall, a wonderful place to stay. Minca does not offer many midrange hotels, so it’s a great option if you dont want to be in a hostel.

The setting is lovely with a beautiful backdrop. The downsides should be obvious, as it's literally a hut in the middle of the forest - the room isn't sealed, so you'll get a variety of bugs and musquitos, as well as lizards (that will poop on you from the roof multiple times). Pay attention, do not book taxis or tours with the reception, as their prices are almost double usual prices you can get in the village or with taxi company in Santa Marta

I love the view, I love the setup. The bed isn't so comfortable, and I wish I had had DEET bug spray! The hammock was what I wanted more than anything, so I wish there were a mosquito net around it so that I could have slept in it overnight. I wasn't in love with the staff, and I didn't know that the reception staff left at like 7. I didn't even know how to find the restaurant to get a bite to eat, and I left on my hike before they arrived. I couldn't check out, as no one was there to check me out. Logistical concern, but it worked out. I spent several free hours after checking out at the restaurant in its hammock. I loved the restaurant staff far more than the front desk staff. The room I was in was ajacent to another room. I listen to podcasts on my phone speaker to sleep, and despite not saying anything when my neighbor's loud conversations disrupted my time on the hammock or my first attempts to sleep, they banged on the wall and yelled at me for my podcasts. Not blaming the hotel whatsoever -- but it's something to be aware of when choosing a room. Heads up -- you need to be able to go up and down steep stairs without railings to stay in these rooms. I could have stayed another day for the view, despite the unfortunate neighbors, relaxing and reading in the hammock, but it was booked up. I still recommend it.
