“Ok !not what I had in mind!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We stayed 6 nights in this hotel,too many for what the hotel offers.
We rent a golf cart outside because the hotel carts are very pricy .This is what made our vacation a Must!
The walking distance to the main road is ok but walking to the Historic District takes more than 2km.
The flies and Mosquitos eat me up and I had to search for a local pharmacy to get a help.
If you need some extra cash ,no way less than 2km walking.
The rooms are ok,,the Riverside suite where we stay ,has no privacy in the balcony area at all.
I chose this hotel following the Trip Advisory reviews but I made a big mistake! My fault!

Really nice hotel with massive rooms on the outskirts of Colonia. We were given an upgrade as it was out honeymoon. Room was huge with a separate living area, kitchenette and large balcony overlooking the river. Hotel is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Colonia and is a very cheap taxi ride. Nice breakfast and pool area. Friendly helpful staff.

If you just plan to stay at the hotel this is a good chioce when it comes to rooms (cool interial design) and pool area (comfortable sunbeds and nice pool). However when getting hungry you will have some issues. The restaurant offers decent selection but is severely overpriced. The alternative is a 45 min walk to the city center or to order a cab getting there (approx 140 pesos).

Our take is that the main purpose of getting to Colonia and staying the night is to eat in the old city center by night. Then this is most likely not the prefered hotel.

Room Tip: Do not pay extra for river view, you will get enough and better views of the river from buquebus fer...

The hotel appears fairly new, is very clean and and large bright spacious rooms. We stayed in a 'loft room with river view' which was great. The room was modern and included a kitchen sink, fridge and microwave. The staff were excellent and the hotel has both an indoor and outdoor pool (complete with Sauna and mini gym in the indooor one).

The only thing to bear in mind is that the hotel is around a 30 minute walk from the hostoric town area where the restaurants are. It's a nice walk however and I'm sure the hotel would phone a taxi for you. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

The Internet is very Great
Room is large and very comfortable
Location is good, but to go to Historic centre you'll need take a taxi
Services from reception are poors
The breakfast is acceptable, few options.
I spend U$D145/per day

Room Tip: River Side Rooms are less expensive with comlete river view.

We were in the Hotel for two nights. We were in a Suite with river view, which was and excellent option. The building has only four floors and we were at the top floor. The service is good; we used the indoor pool and other facilities. We took a massage with Susan, she is excellent. The breakfast is simple and good. The hotel has 60 rooms.
Only three things to note:
1) I called to request massage therapy availability and had to call a second time since I didn´t get an answer the first time.
2) The breakfast room is somehow small. It is the same for lunch and dinner. The tables are set for parties of four; but the vast majority of guests were couples. As a consequence, people occupied tables for four when they were only 1 or 2. Therefore, other guests had to wait for a table.
3) During our stay we saw three people of staff management of the hotel interviewing candidates for job openings of the hotel. The bizarre situation was that the interviews were performed during lunch and breakfast with all guests around them. Everybody was able to hear the full conversations. They also did an appraisal review of supervisor during breakfast. We noted that the conference room in the hotel was empty and available. So, we do not t understand why normal services provided to guests have to be disturbed with back office matters like: performance appraisals and candidate interviews.

Room Tip: Corner suite with river view higher floors

My wife and I stayed on night in a river view suite. The room was great, lots of space, terrace and nice views. The breakfast was nothing special, but all in all a great place to stay, only 100 meters to the beach.
