We just completed a 3 night stay at the Hilton in el laguito. It is ten minutes outside the city center but a world away. When I first entered the lobby I was not impressed because it lack character. When I saw the room I was won over. It was atastefully decorated suite. Only the suites have balconies so we felt it was worth the extra money, and it was. It is important to note that what is a queen bed in columbia is a double bed in the usa.
The gym is nice. The service at the pool and in the restaurant is top top notch. It could not have been better. The pool is a relaxing oasis. No music, but lots of singing from the birds in the trees. The hotel is right on the beach so it is possible to swim in the ocean but sit at the pool. Note that incolumbia all beaches are public and the vendors dont allow you to rest for more than 2 minutes. No means no in any language but they do not stop. On bocagrande they have even more vendors and lots of beggars as well. So if you want to relax, look no further than the Hilton.
