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

Located on an average beach, the sea is very warm and quite calm..so good for kids...it does not however have that "Turquoise" look that you may expect . The staff were very helpful. The... 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

Good beach-front location and food is OK - never got ill from eating here unlike their sister hotel in El Salvador! Just a short taxi ride from Santa Marta town and at the foot of the hills where the lost city is - seems there are helicopter day trips available weather permitting. Beach is fine, unlike what some of the... More

Decameron hotels have a good reputation but this location is a big disappointment. The pool is small considering the size of the resort. The food is simply ok. I had to have my room changed due to filthy linens and the shower was backed up. Once I was moved I had to deal with bugs invading the living space. They... More

There are a lot of good things to say about this hotel. It had nice atmosphere, good restaurants and also a great beach and pool. They also had good entertainment at night. The water at the beach was very warm though but that is the Gulf of Mexico in the summer. The hotel is fairly secure so there are no... More

This is one of the best all inclusive vacation places to stay. The rooms are spacious and clean. If your are worried about drinking the water you don't have to they supply you with bottled water and treated ice, (at no extra charge). Their are so many different places to eat, and the food is delicious. When they say all... More

This is the first time that i purchase an all-inclusive vacation. We were picked up at the airport punctually and zoomed quickly to the hotel. Our bus was full and therefore all wanted to check in at the same time. The service for check-in was very quick and efficient. The room was ready, not great, but ready. We asked to... More
