Check in and check out were really fast, rate was good. Rooms are big, clean, wel maintained, A/C worked perfectly, with almost no noise. Once I left, and I arrived to the airport, I realized I had forgotten my ipad, charger, clock in the room, I immediately called the hotel, and they kept all the stuff I left in the room, and the next day one of my colleagues picked it up. Great customer service!. Restaurant has really good dishes for dinner. Breakfast just ok. Excellent hotel in general!

Had a good stay for work in the Sonesta Barranquilla. The check-in process was incredibly long, and multiple staff needed to consult on a single reservation (same way for others in line). Other than that, everything was good at the hotel. The room decor might be a little dated but seemed to be of good quality. Breakfast was free, and the selection/quality of this breakfast far exceeds the typical free breakfasts in US hotels. Staff was friendly, and checking out was smooth.

You can't make this stuff up. At check in the staff member insinuated I was with an escort when it was a friend waiting for me to check in to go to dinner, she quizzed us about who was staying in the room -none of your F business that's who!! Then in the morning at 6:30 AM I am woken by this horrendous music I try to find out where it's coming from there's an Easter celebration outside the hotel but not there. I track it to a service room close to my room and there's this horrid music blaring from the maintenance staff. I reported to the front desk and was told sometimes they play music in the hotel. Really I'm sure your guests appreciate that in the afternoon not 6-7AM. So I drag myself somewhere to get pace and quiet the breakfast room, sit in the corner to do some work and have a coffee. It fills 30 mens later with families and the manager tells me he needs the table. I will never never stay in this hotel or one of these American chain hotels again, I should have gone with my gut and stayed in a local hotel where they care about your experience!! The lady serving me coffee Maria Jose was very sweet - they should clone her and put her at every station in the hotel!!

Dear Mr. Duncan. We send you a warm greeting from the Sonesta Hotel Barranquilla family. We are so worried about the inconveniences that you got in your most recent stay with us. we´re Talking to the receptionist who attended to you at the check in time, she explains that she only needed the ID from the girl who visited to you, who mistakenly thought that she would go to your room; we guarantee that we will work on the subject to avoid situations like yours being repeated in our hotel, regarding the breakfast issue is being evaluated by the general staff to guarantee better moments in our hotel. We appreciate the recognition you make to our waitress María José, who was notified with yours compliments. We wish to have a new opportunity to offer you a better experience. Sincerely,

We spend our Crhistmas 2018 vacations in this hotel- eight days. Hotel Sonesta provided us with the best customer service we have had compared to other hotels. We arrived on the December 24th at 11:30pm. We were hungry and tired, so we called restaurant room service at around 12:00am and received fresh delicious food in the middle of the night without any delay or complain! we were amazed! Also, on the top floor of the hotel the pool is located and you'll have an incredible view of the city. The only negatives I would give this hotel are the gym-lack of machines and very small space. (although, if you don't care about the gym during vacations then ignore this!) and the other one would be a recommendation- if you eat the snacks left in the room you'll be paying an overpriced amount, so buy your snacks out of the hotel to save money. Otherwise you'll be paying triple for a pack of peanuts.

The Sonesta is probably my favourite hotel in Barranquilla. Being on business trips at the Colombian Coast you can get there easy from Cartagena as well as from the airport. The hotel itself has good equipped rooms with comfortable beds, a gym, meeting rooms and a business center, and also a small spa area. But one of the best featueres is the great and delicious breakfast buffet which I enjoy every time. The staff of the hotel is amazing, very helpful and friendly, they always welcome me like being at home in their hotel. For my company we also hosted some events there and the service before, throughout the event and afterwards was excellent. Thank you so much, you have a great team!
