“Great place and great owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

Taganga Dive Inn was our first choice when arriving Colombia. Before taking spanish classes in Cartagena and Bogota for next 6 weeks we decided to visit Santa Marta, Taganga and The Tayrona National Park. Omar, the owner met us with a great smile and from day 1 he was the best host, guide and friend during the whole stay. He was very patient with our Spanish, as we refused to speak English and was always very kind and gentle. He woke us up with delicious café tinto, the black coffee almost every day, helped us to arrange tours and gave a feeling of being really welcome and home.
The room was clean and the patio outside very cosy.
I definetely recommend this place for all people searching not just a room, but also good host and company.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with windows and more light.

The place is new, about a year+ old. It is still being built by the manager, but nothing to do with loud noises, mostly finishing touches when I stayed there.
The manager (Omar) was extremely friendly. Despite my complete lack of Spanish, he made every effort to make us feel welcomed, that included:
1. Admiting us in at 1am
2. Walking us to the boardwalk and making sure we were taken care of
3. Refusing to accept tip (there was a tip box that I was finally introduced to, which happily took all of my change and a few notes.
4. Overall very nice and helpful

He was the biggest asset in that place. Granted, there weren't many people there, but still.

On the cons - the place had a lot of ants, which I don't particularly care about, but some would. Breakfast was edible but that's pretty much it. It's a very simple place to crash, but we ended up staying there a few days as we found no reason to switch locals. It's a bit far from the main boardwalk (5-7 minutes walking) but that didn't really matter much to me either.
