I arrived late at night (around 10pm) from a long journey and just wanted to have a shower and go to sleep. Check in was fast and staff friendly.

We were in Barranquilla for a friend’s wedding and stayed over the weekend at the Sonesta Hotel. Overall, our stay was alright, but nothing to brag about, as yow will find form the “buts” on this review.

the Sonesta looks like a newer property and it is in a newer area than traditional hotels in Barranquilla. Our rooms were comfortable except the key cards kept malfunctioning and we had to get them constantly re-magnetized. We found the bar to be very friendly and convenient. The friendly bar tender showered us with all the stories of famous people... More

This is one outstanding hotel. The front desk guys were exceptional, particular mention goes to Juan Camilo, Andrea and Jorge and the rest of the staff were all wonderful. The room very large, spacious and perfect service. The hotel is very clean, and very nice environment. I will recommend it to my friends. Unforgettable vacations. Congratulations and many success.

We booked on the Sonesta web site, but when we arrived they had no record of our reservation. It took a good 30 minutes to sort things out. The staff was very friendly. We booked 2 adults and 2 children. After checking our passports and finding that our kids were older than 12 they wanted to charge us an additional... More

I went with my family (6 adults) plus my little niece (2 Yrs). They were kind enough to give us a bedroom in advance before the check in time since we were traveling with the baby girl. The commitment was to give us the two additional bedrooms as we had previously booked at 3pm at the check in time. It... More

I've stayed here twice over the past 18 months and it seems to have gotten worse. When we arrived there were "issues" with our rooms and they had to find another hotel for us and we ended up at the SmartSuites. The next night we had to come back to the Sonesta because SmartSuites was sold out (for good reason).... More
