Although this property is really right off a vey well known and travelled road the taxi drivers look puzzled when giving them the address. Perhaps if I were a local or spoke fluent spanish I could have given them a little help but honestly too many taxi drivers did not have an incling on how to get me here. I fear its the fact that taxistas are not that well trained or tested in learning all the streets in this huge metropolitan city. The hotel is nice although not a word of english is uttered and one feels a bit like a specimen under a microscope. The hotel is well protcted and one can feel quite safe here. the front electric gate is daunting and TALL perhaps built for a vey different and more dangerous, Medellin of days gone by. I recommend this hotel but make sure to bring your electronic translator and colombian pesos and snacks. There are no vending machines, or minibars here. the pool was not kept up at all and the beach chairs are unusable. The maid service was outstanding. A nice tip is appreciated and well deserved. For the price the place is great but scary when your Spanish is less than and the taxi driver is asking pedestrians and other taxi drivers and motrists how to get here. Seriously scary at night in a lonely cab with a less than knowledgeable cabby..oh and by the way the street is one way in the wrong direction. Bummer. Walking to the local mall is possible just watch out for the drivers who have no problem mowing you down. Suggestion, take a cab and call a cab service who knows this street and hotel. You dont want to leave here without the address and directions how to get here. Jumping into a local cab and saying take me to the hotel la casa medellin will not be good enough!!!!!!? A word to the wise,
