This was my second time in this hotel. I was there in 1988, then my husband and I decided to stay there in our trip to Colombia in 2011. The room was nice the manager gave us a choice to stay in the new side of the hotel or the colonial? We choose the colonial it was so nice to see a flavor of old and not the same look of a room that is the same like the others. The breakfast was good a lot of food, but definite or favorite dish was at the pool, the " ensalada mixta" a mixed of fish, chicken and stake cook to perfection. I could eat that all day!!! everything was so convenient, far away from all the madness but taxis come there all the time to get you an drop you door to door. one tip don't go to the beach there, just get go to a travel agent and get a boat ride to " Baru" white beach. so nice. there. if you go to the beach in front of the hotel so many people will be coming to you to sell you stuff that you will want to punch them in the face. very pushy people so be on the look out. I lve the pool better of the hotel and the white beach with trips on boats and def go to the old city. Great trip
