Media Luna Baru
Place was clean and beautiful. Only get coffee if they happen to have it that day and not till breakfast is served around 9 9:30. Really would have loved to have coffee or at least hot water when we got up. Also ran out of some beer and other things. But great views. Beach had lots of coral so getting in and out of water cut your feet if not wearing water shoes. Daisy was super nice at reception

Amazing experience.
Amazing experience. Daisy was this best and was a huge help, especially for getting us home. It is more remote than we anticipated, so make sure you do some research and figure your traveling out ahead of time!

Chill place
I only wanted to do 2 things whilst at Media Luna: relax and see the plankton. I got to do both and really enjoyed my stay. Daisy was friendly and there’s a great chef although food is a bit overpriced but that was expected. Good place to chill for a few days! Recommend going to their Cartagena hostel and sorting transport through them as it was so easy

Exceptional 10.0
Amazing and relaxing, loved it!
This hostel was great, do yourself a favour and book a couple of nights there! The hostel has a couple of shelters where guests stay, each of them with bathroom and toilet, mosquito net on of each bed, sockets and lights. There is a big shelter for the restaurant and chilling area, and then everything you need to enjoy the beach like deck chairs, beach umbrellas, beach shoes for the corals, even kayak, ping pong table and a volleyball net. The number of guests is limited so it is absolutely relaxing and quiet and safe, you can safely go and dip in the see and leave your things on the chair. The staff makes everything possible to make your stay the best one and they really make the difference, really lovey people that treat you like family, there is Blas in reception, really fun to talk to and super helpful, and Robert the cook that is happy to accommodate any dietary requirements (eg I’m veggie and it wasn’t a problem). Food is generous, home made and cheap (15mil pesos for a big meal, dessert and drink). I really enjoyed my stay there, the sea is beautiful and peaceful and I totally recharged my batteries there.
