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

Was encouraged to take this trip by a travel agent via phone. We were told Coastal Columbia commonly spoke English and were directed to a website that promised on-site snorkeling and bright blue Caribbean waters. Well, NO one spoke English and not that they SHOULD have, but we were led to believe that would be the case. Further, the majority... More

Good food, quiet beach and many activities to do. During dinner you might have to share your table with other people. That is a little annoying since sometimes you just want to be with your partner or family. Other than that it is really nice is the shows that the hotel offers

I stayed there with my husband and my little girl, and I was very happy with our room, with the food (especially breakfast), and with the general ambiance. Not all the employees were helpful, or nice, but most of them were, and they handled any of my concerns in a timely manner. In general, I was satisfied with the place,... More

This place is pretty darn good - all inclusive - we had an apartment on the ocean all inclusive for like 140 USD per night for 2 people. It's not fancy - and doesn't cater to a high end crowd like the Decameron Baru Island - but it's perfectly fine for us. The food isn't the best - but it's... More
