First of all, I have to say their customer service is extremely good from the time of the check in until we left to the airport. I travelled with my girlfriend and got there on Saturday Oct 8th at 9:30am, and the lady at the front Desk, Zari, was awesome and got us a room eventhough the check in was...

I was very happy to be able to navigate the resort, enjoy the beach, the pool and the food, and we did not have to leave the facilities and felt welcome and safe. The beach is clean and the staff were nice and helpful.

The rooms are not noise isolated, you will hear the ridiculous noise from the discos nearby at night. Breakfast buffet is inconveniently located far away from the rooms and you have to pick up your food and then walk outside to a dining room that is totally open and surrounded by birds an iguanas that will steal your food if...

All in all we had a relaxing pleasant vacation here. The rooms require a bit of a tutorial due some quirks, but once we were shown the ins and outs we were good to go. The staff was very pleasant and attentive. My family took advantage of 2 prearranged onsite activities (bingo and dancing) which they enjoyed.There was also family...

We really liked the resort though we had some problems. The positives: The resort is beautiful with all its tropical plants and wildlife (iguanas, getcos, cute capybaras, and birds). The main pool is huge and has a slide and large waterfall. The location is right on the beach and the beach is wide, clean, not too rough, and wasn't too...

Generally a good and well-organised hiliday ressort. But n the ebening they organize - or let groups organize - there events with extremly loud music and entertainment.

Spent a day (Day pass) at the resort, mainly staying at the pool. Great place ! The pool is nice, not too crowded (maybe because it was jus after the school holidays). Dinner was served on the tables surrounding the pool. Service was good. A really pleasant day!

When considering the beaches of Colombia, I think the first choice one has to make is what type of vacation or experience one wants.
