This is not a very quiet hotel, but it is nice. Spacious rooms with amazingly white linen, a huge pool (plus a children's pool), parrots flying around, lovely gardens, and a good location make this a sensible choice for a vacation. There are restaurants on the grounds, a gift shop with good prices, and the food is good as well.... More

Made a reservation and was told that cancellation policy was 3 days prior to my stay. One week before my stay tried to cancel and they want to charge me for a three day stay. DO NOT PAY IN ADVANCE IF YOUR PLANS CAN POSSIBLY CHANGE.

Dear Mister Z8769CAmark Thank you for writing and sharing your experience in Tripadvisor. We are really sorry for the inconveniences during your cancellation. In my research about your case I've found out that you made a non refundable reservation. That option, do not allow the guest run in the same policy of three days before for cancellations, refund of money... More

the property is lovely (gardens, pool) etc and the breakfasts fairly good. Coffee less so and long lines for the freshly prepared egg dishes. Rooms are acceptable, clean and beds were fine. But water systems were noisy in the bedroom building. generally could do with some modernization and upgrading. Front desk staff are very slow, but staff generally helpful.

A well-established and up-to-date hotel, situated in the Bocagrande district, you are no more than 10 minutes away from the old city and the San Fellipe fortress. Service all around the hotel was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast buffet which had many of your typical Colombian breakfast options. The coffee(cafe con leche) tasted amazing and did not need... More
