The hotel grounds are beautiful, with a generous layout (a lot of walking). The standard room we had was huge. The pools are big and never crowded. The water was nice and warm (pools and ocean). The resort has two beaches, both with small riffs to go snorkeling. We were really able to relax and enjoy the great weather. Overall... More

Excellent place to rest and relax! It was my first time there and I loved it very much and plan to go back. There are like 11 modules where the rooms are located and they seem to be different and located in several areas of the resort. There is one in front of the beach for the plus $$$ rooms.... More

First time ever traveling to South America and going to Columbia was a blast. This resort reminds me of a adult tree house. Be advise that you will have to walk up some steep hills at this place. Look at it as exercise while you are on vacation. The food while not world class is never the less good enough.... More

The pools and beach were nice. The package was all inclusive, but that's where it ends. The room was mediocre at best. Stains on the furniture, roaches in the room, the shower was clogged, etc. The check in and out process was ridiculous and time consuming. We had to argue about everything to check in and out. They don't tell... More

This resort can only be explained as a little piece of heaven. It is an extensive resort with three a la carte restaurants, one buffet restaurant, three pools and a little beach. It was never full to the point where you couldn't find a sun lounger. They have a spa and organise excursions to various destinations. It is also the... More

Great hotel in Baru, close to Cartagena by car and accesible by boat. The hotel has its own buses that'll take you back and forth for 50 thousand pesos. It is an all inclusive hotel, and drinks and food are very good. I recommend you take your own insulated container because cups are very small and get flat and warm... More
