Had high expectations for this hotel but they were short lived. Front desk service was hit and miss, had to call a few times to have the wifi password reset, which disconnects every few minutes. The first log in and password was wrong from the get go. The room's AC leaked from the vent in the ceiling all over the... More

Me and my colleagues stayed in this hotel for our weekend getaway during our 50week assignment in Bogota. It is a good, but not special hotel. It has a beach near by. Good enough for a short weekend. Breakfast was including, and the package we had included the lunch/dinner of Saturday. We opted for lunch, before going to the city... More

When we arrived at Almirante we had mixed feelings. I was surprised that the hotel spends a person to respond to every review. The receptionist was very kind. We had arranged a triple room, prepaid from our home country. Unfortunately when we arrived we realized that there was no third bed in the room and no towel, although prepaid as... More

Buying the all inclusive package was all a confusion between the presentation in the internet and the time we arrived at the hotel. There was no welcome cocktail as per the description of the package and the room we received was not up to our standards.It was mentioned city view and we received the room looking on a piece of...

It was very nice to be there. The location was great. We walked in the afternoon in the beach. Wish we had stayed longer. You take a cheap taxi to go to the restaurantas in downtown but you enjoy the beach right in front of the hotel.

I was bothered by the poor value this hotel provides. Normally, hotels in Colombia that bill themselves as “5 star” provide a level of service and comfort that a mid-to-high end North American chain would. This one however, in spite of insisting on charging a comparable rate to these hotels, simply does not measure up. I will give credit where... More

This is a nice hotel, no luxury, but nice. Service is great, staff is very helpful, it is clean, safe, and well located. Good breakfast. Pool is small but nice. You get to the public beach by just crossing the street. It is a 5 to 10 minute taxi ride to the walled cityt (6000 pesos). Small gym with basic... More
