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

I had transferred from the Hilton after a long-term stay there, and I was very sad about the downgrade when I first arrived at the Almirante.... More
