We overnight here and it was calm, no noise at night, bathrooms clean and good wifi. There is a small restaurant here that serves a reasonable food with cheap price.

What a great stop over for the night. 30000 Cop for a night for a double room private bathroom. Private parking. Great AC. In the middle of nowhere by on the way south it’s the perfect stop.

After spending 3 days on the sweltering coast with no real shower it was great to come here. For 30,000 COP we got a clean room with private bathroom, and cold shower!

Report Check-In

Indeed very clean. Better than I expected for 30.000 COP.

Slept here with our dog in the room.

Beds were hard, but that’s okay if you’re used to it like we are.

Wifi was not working for me.

We stopped here to cut the road from the north and Medellin.
This is a very big parking for truck. People were really nice, with our camper van we could park behind the reception. As we were with 2 auto-stoppeur we negotiate a room for them for 30K and a free parking for us and slept in our camper. The night was really quite and a bit warm. It’s not a beautiful place but really ok to stop on the road !

Just as others wrote, simple double room for 30,000 pesos. Staff was very friendly and they didn't mind us having our dog in the room. Even offered us coffee in the morning.

Nice and clean room. They said nothing about our dog.

It's a long drive between Bucaramanga and the coast. This is a great spot to stop along the way. We don't do many 'hotels' so we are a bit hesitant to sleep away from the camper, but this place was good. Paper-thin walls (don't you love hearing other people's tvs), cold shower and all-important air con. We also ate at the restaurant and it was simple 'menu del dia' type food for 8,000 per plate. Parking is not Gated, but is secure by being way back off the road, and by the manned reception area. We are sticklers for vehicle security and we were very comfortable parking there. We paid 30,000 for the room.

Side note - gasoline is discounted in this region thanks to the proximity of Venezuela. Generally its 1000 to 1500 pesos per gallon cheaper. We noticed the lower prices from just north of Bucaramanga to just north of Curumani. So if you plan to fill it's worth doing before leaving the region.

Absolutely fine for a night stop when traveling down this side of the country. We took a room for 40,000 pesos and for this got a clean room with private bathroom and cold shower. It was more than adequate for our needs. We also parked the landy under a shade and it felt very secure. There is a cafe next door and we had tea and breakfast there-both lovely and very cheap! A great spot to break up a long journey.

Very nice and clean room with AC (was too hot for us to sleep in the van), fast wifi, good restaurant next door.
Downside - very noisy neighbors - truck drivers, who woke us up 5 am.

Decent overnight place. Super clean. They were completely full so let us camp in parking lot for 10000. They opened a room of someone that had not arrived yet and let us shower.
