Not sure where to start. After staying 4 days at the Royal Decameron Baru with my husband and teenage daughter this hotel is a huge disappointment.. The room and bathroom are out dated. Bathroom only carried two towels. Had asked the cleaning lady for extra towels and she hands me one additional towel. The beds are hard. Stayed in the... More

The bad : Hotel looks like it was built in the 70's then upgraded in the late 80's, still uses room keys not the more secured room cards. The room and bathroom fixtures are very antiquated ! The AC was either broken or barely working during my entire stay, one of the three nights the AC blew humidity into the... More

The hotel had many activities on a daily basis from am to late at night, a nice pool and a good selection of food. The beach there was very narrow and populated with vendors trying to sell to you. In the surrounding area there were restaurants shopping and pharmacies and the hotel itself was well regulated and secure. Checkin was... More

This was the worst, filthiest hotel I have stayed in since my backpacking days. The place was so dirty and the room smelled so bad! The beds were awful, and the location very loud. The sheets were moldy and the floor so filthy we had to wear shoes. The common areas were run down and the food was terrible. They... More

The hotel is right in front on the ocean, with a semi private bay and with coastguards and military to help tourists, the "walled city" is also nearby so it's easy to travel there. The hotel has themed restaurants and one is located inside the walled city, if you decide to stay there are secure taxis to get you to... More

My husband and I spent a total of 7 days here and this being our first trip to Columbia we couldn't have imagined it to be better. The check in was a bit slow, mainly because we spoke only English and they were waiting for a translator but otherwise the staff was friendly, informative with their gestures and made us... More

The hotel and environs were always clean and the rooms are comfortable, i was not too happy with the bed as it was very firm...ok it was hard but everything was... More

While this hotel was average the rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was fantastic, very helpful and friendly. The food was plentiful and there was good selection of fruits and vegetables if you didn't care for the selection of meats offered. I'm not a fan of fried and sauces so more my problem than theirs.
