The hotel is right in front on the ocean, with a semi private bay and with coastguards and military to help tourists, the "walled city" is also nearby so it's easy to travel there. The hotel has themed restaurants and one is located inside the walled city, if you decide to stay there are secure taxis to get you to... More

My room was located on the 20th floor and the view was amazing, was super clean with all amenities, air conditioner.... The hotel has 5 restaurants, pool, all inclusive! If there is an spare space, the parking is free... More

My husband and I spent a total of 7 days here and this being our first trip to Columbia we couldn't have imagined it to be better. The check in was a bit slow, mainly because we spoke only English and they were waiting for a translator but otherwise the staff was friendly, informative with their gestures and made us... More

The hotel and environs were always clean and the rooms are comfortable, i was not too happy with the bed as it was very firm...ok it was hard but everything was... More

While this hotel was average the rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was fantastic, very helpful and friendly. The food was plentiful and there was good selection of fruits and vegetables if you didn't care for the selection of meats offered. I'm not a fan of fried and sauces so more my problem than theirs.

I enjoyed the all inclusive idea. You get 5 meals a day! The food was ok. All meals except dinner are buffet style. You have to reserve your dinner every day. We never had a chance to get the seafood dinning, it was always booked up! The staff were partly friendly. As of the resort, the room was clean and... More

Rooms lower than the average, but the worst this is the food. You can dine just once in one decent restaurant called San Pedro, but for that, you have wake up 6 am. or so, go to the lobby and do a long line to get booking. (see picture, it reminds me free food places for homeless in Toronto). They... More

Its a 3 star experience: hotel, room, food, drinks, atmosphere, amenities, staff, location, entertainment are all either old, dated or average or all three. Nothing was terrible or shocking or unpalatable. But equally nothing was great or amazing or memorable. The hotel would do one thing badly and then one thing well and it was frustrating. For example the room... More
