We had a magical, restorative time at Hotel Playa Manglares - This is truly a special place. Olga's son Juan and his wife Sara were incredibly open, helpful and welcoming, including by arranging our last minute stay at their apartment in Cartagena's Old City (also on airbnb). The guest house, the veranda and the beach are completely tranquil and beautifully done, down the smallest details. The top floor of the house is like something out of a romantic Swiss Family Robinson dream, not to mention the outdoor shower under the palm trees and hammocks under the mangroves. Though it is a short drive to the white sands of Playa Blanca, you could easily stay only on their property for your whole visit, lazing in the hammocks and sharing excellent meals. Needless to say, we plan on returning one day.
Notre séjour de 5 nuits à la playa manglares chez Olga n'a été que du bonheur .
D'abord le lieu sa plage très calme et la décoration soignée et originale des chambres

Merci Olga :-)
Overall a great experience. Beautiful place to stay and relax with private beach and lovely food. Olga is very helpful in making your stay as comfortable as possible. Also It is just minutes away from playa Blanca. Perfect for couples. We had an amazing time, highly recommended! Thank you Olga!
My husband myself and our 4-year old daughter stayed at Playa Manglares for a week in December 2014. Olga's place is a real gem; a paradise with a warm, kind and an inspiring host. The location is beautiful, better than any pictures can portray. The private beach, although not turquoise like the nearby Playa Blanca, was much more desirable for us as it was calm, shallow and private. We spent our days lounging on hammocks by the beach, swimming with our daughter in the refreshing water, collecting shells and building sand castles. Olga took us to the soon to be open bird sanctuary - which was an awesome place and a must see if you're in the area. The house itself is very unique. My husband and I are both accomplished travellers and we both agreed that Olga's place was the most unique accommodation to date. The rooms are open so one feels like sleeping outdoors, but with all the comforts of an indoor room. We loved falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean and waking up to the rooster; having tiny monkeys visit us in the afternoons and relaxing in the common hammock "living room" area where all guests can share travel stories and socialize. Olga is a wonderful hostess who made us feel like family within one day of arriving. She even made special concoctions for my husband to help him get better when he was feeling a bit sick. Our daughter loved picking her own eggs for breakfast and snuggling up to one of the dogs who live on the property. I loved Olga's home made ice cream and juices! We were very lucky to find this place and welcome the New Year with Olga, other guests and some of her awesome friends with an Argentinian meal fest and a huge beach bonfire! The best New Year's celebration yet! Olga's place is not a party place (well, unless you are there for New Year's), but if one would like to meet incredible, inspiring people and enjoy a very unique Colombian experience - Olga's place is a must! I can't wait to go back. Olga, we miss you already! Thank you for having us in your paradise and making us feel so welcome. A big thank you to you and your team! Kisses and hugs from snowy Canada for all.
The place fulfilled all our expectations, the room (in the second floor) was quite, clean, spacious, well ventilated, excellent large mosquito net, well design bathroom and large private terrace deck!! Lots of character!
Good food, cheerful, helpful communicative host, who introduced us to the aviarum nearby and gave us information on what to do around the place and helped us to organise transport to playa blanca and Cartagena. If she organises your transpotation in Alvaro's car and are in a mood for good music, ask him to play his fantastic jazz and blues music!!
We had a memorable 3 nights holiday in Olga's place and we can very much recommend the place.
Olga was such an amazing host. We felt really comfortable, she welcomed us very warmhearted and with the first minute we found our connection.
If you search for partying on the beach, no, not your place. If you look for freedom, peace and quietness, it is your place!! We definitely come back!!
What can we say about olga and her beautiful place. Well from the moment we arrived, olga greeted us like we were part of her family. She is such a lovely person and made our stay so memorable. There was initially a mix up with the booking but she gave up her room for us, a real example of doing everything she could to make our stay special. We had a candle lit meal on the beach one night which was fantastic. The house is amazing with it's own beach so very quiet and relaxing. Olga and her team are so happy and friendly that it's hard for it not to be infectious. We had an amazing morning at the soon to be open bird sanctuary and a great day at playa blanco.
Olga has a little slice of paradise and would recommend staying there if you get the chance.
