This hotel is awesome! I took my two little annoying children with me and nobody in the hotel lost their patience. This hotel has pets for the children when they visit. My kids pulled sloths out of the trees, played with deer, fed monkeys and macaws, and never once did anybody tell them no. My kids were so happy. They screamed when we had to leave. They were crying when we left. Their favorite part was all the animals. The animals to all of us was the best part because the children stayed completely entertained the entire time. This hotel is complete with salon, sauna, gym, massage service, several stores for jewelry and arts and crafts, pool and separate children's pool, park for the children with swings, and a game room for the children. I just called and somebody picked up my dirty laundry in the room, washed it, ironed it, and placed it all back neatly in my room. I didn't lift a finger there and that's what a vacation means to me. The service is outstanding. Everybody is so patient and nice. The food in the breakfast buffet was typical Colombian food and delicious. Also, people on these reviews complain that the food takes forever. This is Colombia and everything is homemade. They don't have the accessories in the kitchens that we do here in the states to make everything quick and easy. They literally hand make the pasta and roll their own bread and they make it to order, one at a time if somebody requests. The food comes out hot and fresh. If you want fast food, there is a McDonald's down the street from the hotel. The rooms are similar to that of any Holiday Inn here in the states. The overall stay was just really pleasant. We are very happy.
