Merecumbe Hotel

Reviewed 5 June 2014

Merecumbe is located on a beautiful property with great attention to detail reflected in both the design and decoration of the very comfortable huts as well as the main house and the gardens. The beach is a short walk away and very nice to use for lounging and relaxing in a hammock with a book.
The food was uniformly wonderful, and the staff was very helpful and attentive.

We spent five perfect days in the sanctuary that is Merecumbé hotel and would go back tomorrow if we could. We woke up every day to dozens of hummingdbirds flying in the lush greenery surrounding our cabin. Nestled between the jungle and the beach the site is private, luxurious and immaculately tended. No detail is spared. This is a perfect getaway for nature lovers. Service is impeccable and discrete. The food was delicious and there were enough options to eat something new at every meal. The tropical fruit juices alone are reason to go back!
I already miss my outdoor shower!

Everything about our stay at Merecumbe Hotel was perfect. We could not think of one single negative thing, to say about our stay.
We stayed for 3 nights, and enjoyed every moment of it. The rooms, or "ecohabs", are beautiful and very clean, with great bathroom facilities, and the fact that there is no hot water, could not mean any less. The entire ecohab has a kind of mosquito net in the walls, to keep mosquitos and other insects out at all times.
The personnel are friendly and helpful. The food is delicious. The beach is wonderful, although it is not suitable for small children, there is, however, a wonderful lake, perfect for children, no more than 10 minutes walk, long the beach, away. And the garden is so well kept, that it's a pleasure to just walk around the hotel area.
If it's not paradise on earth, it's pretty damn close.
5/5

Loved snoozing in the hammocks and night-time bonfires by the sea. Had a great time playing soccer and badminton on the beach. Food and drinks were excellent. However, the food/bar service was appallingly slow. This negatively impacted our experience staying at Merecumbe. With improved service this could be a 4 star resort.

We stay in Merecumbe for 4n after travelling for 3 weeks in Colombia. When you arrived you feel very welcome and have a nice juice. All the people are so helpfull, friendly and very polite (even when some tourist COMMAND something) the have still a smill on there face. Everything was very,very clean, also the open kitchen, The food and drinks were very, very good.Our room Mapana was very nice and so quiet, we ask for 2 beds and the second bed was already in the room when we arrived. There is a fan and you have a nice breeze when you let everything open, the outside bathroom is also very nice, even with the cold water, you have also a private sitting area with a shower (nice when your a coming back from the beach) and also at the beach you have toilets and showers. A lot of space to sit and very nice with the hammocks on the beach, you can walk along the beach and to a small village (nice to meet the locals, specially in the weekend) and swim in the creek. The only thing that we missed was a pool (but it's an eco-hotel), because the sea has a very strong current;, so it's not save. We tought to go to Tayrona, but it was so nice in Merecumbe that we stay in that little Paradise, we are sure that we are coming back.

Room Tip: We think that all the rooms are nice and quiet

We weren't planning to stay in Merecumbe. Our tour operator transferred us for one night, because they had mistakenly booked two nights instead of three in Eco-hubs Tayrona. Of course we weren't happy to be moved, but surprisingly we had a pleasant stay. Merecumbe is located outside Tayrona, the territory is covered by beautiful tropical garden. Room and patio are tastefully decorated, shower room amazingly nice, food was great. No hot water, that's a minus. Another minus, beach water kind of murky, compared to Tayrona. Another minus - mosquitoes, again compared to Eco-hubs were the wind blew them away.
