“Exceeded my expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2007

I was nervous about visiting Colombia and based on things I had read on the internet was not expecting much for our accommodations. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at this hotel. The setting was beautiful, each room I believe has a view of the lovely hillside and pool area. The pool area is great, I wish I had brought my suit. They also have three jacuzzi tubs. The massages are cheap (around $25 for an hour) but the spa is definitely without perks. The rooms were clean and definitely adequately appointed. We had breakfast included in our room rate, and they brought it to us in bed. The room service was quick and very hospitablet. Also, housekeeping and laundry were top notch. The restaurant was a lovely setting, though service was definitely slow-though this seems to be a citywide trait. Also, the hotel has good security at the entrance of the hotel property. I was told by the locals that this is the best hotel in the city and based on my experience I would agree.
