Our room was nice and comfortable and cleaned well every day. The shower was kind of small and there was not drying string to hang our stuff on, but other than that, we were very satisfied with the room during our six night stay over Holy Week. Our boys LOVED the pool, so much that we hardly left the hotel. They spent hours playing with other kids in the kiddie pool; we kept saying they had forgotten they had a family.
We ate a huge breakfast at the hotel every morning, which had enough variety that we didn't get bored. But the other food we tried at the terrace restaurant really wasn't very good. We ate at Arepas Pues! a few times (down the strip from the hotel) which was cheap a good!
We went to the "Isla del Sol" one day, with the travel agency at the hotel. The logistics were easy, though I am not convinced that was the best way to see Las Islas del Rosario.
The internet signal was horrible in our room the first five days, so we had to connect by cable, until the last day. My husband is studying online so that was VERY inconvenient. But other than that we had a great experience.
