“Comfortable thatched-roof cabins by the beach”
Reviewed 4 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We loved the cozy cabins at Playa Picua Ecolodge. Our hostess Martha made sure all our needs were met. She organized food for us, taxis to and from Santa Marta and to Tayrona National Park, which is a short distance from Playa Picua. The trail to the lost city is also nearby. Breakfast fixings are provided and Martha supplied everything we liked and needed. The outdoor kitchen is perfectly set up for making coffee in the morning without waking the cabin mates. The cabin is meticulously cleaned daily by Martha's wonderful assistant. We were about 20 metres from the beach and the other two cabins are closer. There is a surfer/backpacker bar/restaurant a few metres up the beach that serves good and inexpensive food. The beach is beautiful, though in December the surf is rough for non-surfers. We would recommend Playa Picua to anyone. Thank you Martha.

“Romantic Weekend Paradise”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed at Playa Pikua Ecolodge with my girlfriend for three glorious nights. This place is a paradise. The beach is steps away and the three casitas are private and super comfortable with en suite bathrooms and a kitchenette with all the supplies needed to make coffee, tea and a tasty breakfast each morning. We loved being delivered the breakfast ingredients to prepare whatever we liked each morning. Oscar and Marta are wonderful hosts and Adelina took care of our casita everyday. The property is well maintained and the beach is nice and quiet. We really enjoyed our stay here, including the hammocks and day bed near the beach as well as the beach fire Oscar and Marta made for us and the other guests staying at the lodge one night. We look forward to coming back Playa Pikua soon!

Had a wonderful time at playa pikua. We were greeted upon our arrival by Oscar and Marta who were really welcoming and took the time to answer any questions we had about the area. The cabins were very clean and well looked after. We loved lying on the hammocks relaxing and reading a book or having a cold drink while listening to all the amazing nature sounds. Swimming was good but make sure not to go too far out as you need to really swim hard to get back ashore. All in all we had a wonderful, magic time here.

I loved my stay in playa pikua! Thw owners Oscar And Martha made me feel comfortable at answered all my questions.
I went surfing which was really thrilling. The sea is great, it really feels like a private beach.
We made fires at night a played guitar in front of the sea, that was so relaxing.
I love the calm of the place and the easy it is to go to different sites of interest!
I can't wait to go back!
