Description

ADMIN NOTE: The new owners of this place requested that this place is removed from iOverlander, because:
"While we have been here we have been visited by some awesome humans adventuring through Colombia in their vans. Unfortunately, we will not be able to hosts any future campervans, as new owners we have remodeled the previous known place and now opening as a boutique hotel. Our facilities and parking is very limited."
---
We stayed at Hostal Colonial for 2 times because it was too nice. After checking out all the other options in Minca, we decided to stay here. It's a 15 Minute walk to Minca and 5 Minutes to the famous street-grill "Carmarilla". They have a private waterfall, a pool, lots of birds (we saw many toucans) flying around and fast wifi. From here we saw the perfect sunset every evening and everything is topped by Lix and William, the friendly owners. Their garden is full of fruits and they don't mind sharing! It's 15k p.P but if you stay longer, you might be able to get a better deal. They have dorms and private rooms too, beginning at 25k. We strongly recommend this place for your stay in Minca! Camping is on a grassy lot in front of the hostal. 4 dogs. Driving there from the road might be too narrow for huge rigs!

We stayed here 3 nights to enjoy the cooler evenings , after Cartegena and Santa Marta. Very nice facility. We are 11'4" tall and cleared the entrance arches easily. Tight parking for 2 vehicles, with electricity. Great location to tour or explore. We walked to Minca and back several times. About 15 min one way. Wifi was good enough to stream.

15,000cop per night pp to sleep in truck. 4 dogs a bit of a nuisance but they and the surrounds are pretty quiet after dark.

Report Check-In

We thought this place was great, it started pouring with rain when we arrived so was great to have a place to sit in a hammock, prepare dinner and sit around in. The pool was looking worse for wear but with the weather we didn't want to swim anyways. Owners seemed lovely and wifi was handy especially when so many places in town don't have it.

Same as Pin Project, we didn't met cool owner..
The Camping area is just a joke! They offer a piece a cement concrete with no shade at all. Poor installation. Horrible place. We left.

Report Check-In

First, we did not meet any friendly owner. Second, this place barely fits two vehicles in the "parking lot". The tent camping is so n so. They quoted 40000 for 2 people-one vehicle and 100000 for a shared-bathroom double room. The location is amazing but the place does not worthwhile the last rough 1km.

Double room with AC for 140/night incl. very good breakfast. Parking infront with full use of showers, pool, wifi etc. 30000. Such nice owners and you park with an unbeatable view. Kolibris flew right up to flowers infront of our door. Nice and cool mountainair.

Nice grassy/gravel camp spot in front of hostel entrance. Like everyone says, William the owner is very nice and accommodating. Nice pool setting with great views. Clean restrooms and good wi-fi during our stay at least. Road from Minca a little
rutty and muddy but fun to drive.

hôtel situé sur les hauteurs de M INCA au milieu de la forêt tropicale et des oiseaux, quasi paradisiaque!

30 000 pesos la nuit pour 3 dans le fourgon

propriétaires extrêmement sympathiques qui nous ont laissé profiter de toutes les commodités de leur hôtel alors qu'il était fermé et qu'eux mêmes étaient absents

petit problème : la piste qui y conduit est en très mauvais état (environ 1.5km) et l'endroit ne peut pas accueillir de gros véhicules

Report Check-In

Really nice place to relax, unwind and cool off after shipping our vehicle and the hussle and bussle and most of all heat of Cartagena. As said, amazing views of the mountains, birds everywhere and a super nice natural pool with cool water from the river. Very clean bathroom too. We paid 15.000 pesos per person per night and had the place virtually to ourselves for 3 days. William and Lix are awesome. Parked in front of the hostel entrance which was fine for us but probably not more then 2 cars or campers will fit here. No hight restrictions. Highly recommended!
