After a long and difficult trip from Cartagena, that included a three hour wait for the ferry in Magangue and an hour's drive over unpaved and bumpy roads, we arrived at this beautiful hotel. The owner was there to welcome us and he made us feel at home. We had a room at the back of the first floor that was air conditioned, very ample, clean and comfortable. The bathroom is big, with a wonderful shower and readily available hot water. The hotel is in a converted colonial house and has every modern convenience, it has the feel of a very expensive spa resort in the US or Europe , not what you expect to find in a remote, but beautiful place like Mompox.
There is a well appointed rooftop terrace with comfortable sitting and a hot tub to relax and watch the tropical sunset. We decided to order our diner at the hotel and were not disappointed, we enjoyed a delicious diner, freshly made, with natural local ingredients, food is prepared from scratch after you order, so you need to give the Chef time to work his magic
The next morning we had breakfast in the patio, again freshly made to order and delicious. The owner came over and suggested a great itinerary to visit the 17th century center of Mompox. We only stayed a night, but honestly wished we could have stayed longer. Perhaps next time.
