The staff at the hotel were discreetly helpful, quick to answer any queries and always cheerful. Delightful. I stayed in the Havana room which was great - lovely to have the option of air conditioning and a ceiling fan. Beautifully furnished even though desk was cluttered with technology! The shower cubicle leaked water onto the bathroom floor and the paint was peeling on the floor. It would be good to have a light over the mirror in the bathroom. Unfortunately the door to the Havana room had gaps under it and to one side so mosquitoes found their way in whatever my efforts to keep them out and avoid getting bitten! Don Angel smoked in the dining area despite the hotel saying it was 100% tobacco smoke free. The downstairs pool was empty - in maintenance the staff said. It was surprising that the water shortage in Santa Marta wasn't mentioned and it wasn't suggested that guests could help to save water...
Single travellers beware...A member of staff helpfully explained possible tours on arrival and I was keen to go to Parque Tayrona. However, it turned out the hotel charge tours by room not by person so I would have had to pay double. Completely unjust!! I ended up fixing up my own tour through a local travel agency.
