I was not impressed with the place. Pool was very dirty, and on our room's bathroom the sink has a sign saying the water wasn't clean (No potable)Well I thought ok I just won't drink it.. Well I didn't know that just by brushing your teeth you can become sick. I came back home feeling sick and found out I... More

I went with my friend and we had a great time! We loved the food and we meet two cool guys from the hotel that helped us a lot. They were working in all activities in the beach. There is a different show every night and they are awesome. The food is really good. The pool is quite small but... More

We were looking for an adventurous two weeks in Colombia and certainly got it. We used our week at the Decameron Galeon as a relaxing rest from the week before that we spent trekking though the jungle to the Lost City, which was amazing by itself and as the real highlight of our trip. I have to stress though that... More

Well day 1 at the Decameron, very little is explained at the front desk about instructions of what to do, probably because it is so busy, employ more staff and have more than 2 people checking in the guests, long queues in 30 plus degrees is rather annoying and not pleasant, explain where to go for lunch and that there...

Fun place! My family wants to return! Had a nice beach, family entertainment, and pools. The restaurants were nice and the bars served good drinks. I love the all inclusive packages. It was definitely worth it. The only bad thing was it said the water was not potable, but they provided fresh drinking water in every room. Overall, a great... More

Was here from may 17-20th. My husband, in laws, grandma, cousins, & my mom, a group of 13 in total. It was great. Very clean. Food was good too. Side note: One night we all went to the club, it was empty but since we were a large group we had fun either way. As a large family trip it's... More

Location is about 45 minutes from downtown Santa Marta and also far from Rodadero Beach. Rooms are comfortable larger than expected and clean. Rooms are maintained daily and bathrooms are always extremely clean. The hotel provides a large bottle of water every day. Rooms come without refrigerator, but you can request one if desired. The food is good with lots... More

It has all that is offered in the plan. Food, drinks, pool, beach... But the quality is not great. They are more interested in having a full hotel 24/7 than on making it great. It's an average hotel in which you can be ok but if you can afford a better option I highly recommend you to choose a better... More

When my girlfriend and I got this "all inclusive" hotel, we discovered that it wasn't all inclusive at all. They charged us extra for the safe, a daily fee of $6.00, which I agree, is a low amount, but still felt ridiculous and inconvenient given their "All inclusive" advertisement. If we wanted internet service, that was another $6.00 for 30... More
