This is one of the most beautiful, open hotels that I have stayed in. The rooms are lovely and spacious. We had the sea front rooms, which come at and extra price; but they are definitely worth it as the view is one which I believe is priceless. The beaches where spectacular with the sea being as clear as a... More

We would give this place 4 1/2 stars if we could. We went here this past February and it was AMAZING!!!!!! Read some of the negative reviews that have been posted, and we suggest you ignore them because they seem to be written by snobby travellers. We are recommending it to all our family and friends! We are an adventurous... More

Very disorganized check in. The rooms were like something you'd find in a cheap hotel. It would be ok if things reflected the local culture-I mean I don't travel to live like we do in USA but this place is just tacky. No fresh fruit drinks at the bar. The food was mostly bad-I did enjoy some traditional Colombian dishes... More

If you come here expecting an all-inclusive resort worth the money you are going to pay you will be sorely disappointed. It just doesn't have what other places on the Caribbean coast (of Colombia or the islands) offer for the same or less. The room is alright but not too fancy. The internet is pretty slow and expensive. The beach... More

This reviews is based entirely on a price vs quality point of view. There are better options for this price tag. They may not be all inclusive but they do present a better value for money Good: location, beach, delux rooms with ocean view Bad: service, amenities, pool (dirty and warm) Terrible: FOOD!!!! There is no way the food there... More

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
