Summary: This is not a five star hotel. It is an overpriced high volume conference and package tour Hotel. The housekeeping is excellent and the pool area is comfortable and there are some excellent touches such as beautiful gardens and miniature deer in the grounds. The breakfast is dreadful including instant coffee (in Columbia!!) and, with large numbers of people,you... More

This hotel is supposedly a 5-star place, but our room in the Lagoma Building is in need of resuscitation. Mold on the ceiling over the bed, water dripping from bathroom ceiling, refrigerator propped up on wood blocks and wobbled every time it was opened/closed. The A/C was totally inadequate and the room remained warm and humid to the point where... More

The pool and all of the attractions were top notch, the room was the issue. A bit dated with plumbing problems from the room above us that caused our ceiling to collect run off water to shower down on our heads. Staff worked to make repairs and clean the room.

Old classic hotel with large rooms. Nice shower. It had a great view of the pool and ocean. Very helpful staff. Only negative was lousy Internet. Obviously it is inadequate for ypthe guests needs. In 3 days I probably had to sigh in 50 times it kept dropping me. They should spend a little money and upgrade their system. Nice... More

We stayed here as part of a package tour to Cartagena. It is supposedly the nicest resort in the area. It is an enclave of sorts, with multiple buildings, a large central pool area, and a private beach across the street. The room was plenty serviceable, with strong AC and a decent bathroom. The central pool location is nice but... More

This is a very nice hotel. Our room was comfortable and the shower was great. The gardens are beautiful and full of small deer, toucans, macaws, and even a sloth. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Right across from the beach and close to restaurants in Bocagrande. Quick and cheap cab ride to the old city. We greatly enjoyed... More

I was very impressed. Stayed here while traveling with a tour group (so did not pick the hotel) but this is more of a resort than a hotel. Very clean rooms and friendly staff from the front desk attendants to the maids to the maintenance workers. Great pool and beautiful grounds. Right across the street from the beach. The beach...
