10/10 Exceptional

Blissful stay in Baru
This is an amazing venue and our bungaloo was wonderful with its very own tiny swimming pool. The beach is lovely. Bicycles are available for riding within the resort and service with golf carts is prompt. Service is first rate and all have the most wonderful and positive attitudes. I worry a bit about maintenance for the resort, which is only 5 years old. Being so close to salt water, maintainance for all things metalic must be especially high order.

10/10 Exceptional

This property is a piece of paradise! The beauty of the setting along with the comfort of the treehouses, we loved every minute of our stay. The staff is amazing and prompt. The spa is serene and I had truly the best massage of my life under the care of Ester. The other staff members from waiters to golf cart drivers to beach attendants were friendly and always helpful and prompt in their service. Our treehouse was amazing and comfortable and every detail was well thought out…for example, ice maker in room! Also a hammock which was super comfy! We woke every morning to beautiful birds singing happily. Well worth seeking out the monkeys which live also on property. To the reviews who mentioned their breakfasts weren’t always as requested, keep in mind that the majority of staff speak their native language of Spanish and little English. I’m sure if they ordered breakfast to me in Spanish, I would also not get it exactly right. The 2 beaches were equally amazing! The private beach club is about a 5 minute boat ride and is well worth the effort. It was closed one day for a private event so be sure to ask the schedule so you don’t miss out. Transport to and from the resort is a bit tricky. Car from Cartegena easy and just over an hour. We took boat back and it is indeed a wild ride of about an hour. If you are at all prone to motion sickness or have any physical conditions that are aggravated by jarring, do yourself a favor and take taxi. Overall, fantastic stay!
