Definitely not worthy of four stars. Looking in need of major over-haul, dodgy plumbing and electrics, my shower stopped working mid-shower. Food was eatable but totally uninspiring and you are recommended to get in there early as things run out very quickly. Also place closes down at nine. Swimming pools are good!

Everything in the hotel, except the pool, needs to be renovated and updated to be more in line with the 21st century. The furniture in the rooms is worn down and has been visibly over used... so is the bathroom sink, toilet, shower, etc. All of this old junk in the room, combined with the older air conditioning unit, gave...

It was a good experience, service was ok but the food in the restaurant was not so good. The surrounding areas were ok (cafam vacation place). There is a newer hotel in the same region (inside Cafam) that seems to be better

This hotel is far too expensive for what you get. Rough threadbare towels, cheap tacky bathroom amenities, dirty floors, filthy furniture in the room. The rules are ridiculous - swim caps in the pool, and they treat getting a towel at the pool like you're trying to get gold from a bank. They also charge you a mint to have...

We recently stayed at the Hotel (End Oct 2013) and found it to be great fun and very relazing. We were there over a weekend and during the week days. The night time activities are great, along with the sightseeing in the daytime. It is an easy drive from Bogota. We enjoyed the room, amenities and the restaurants are great...

I travelled with my wife, daughter of 6 and my son of 10 months. Our room was tidy and clean and was airconditioned. The staff were friendly and helpful. A recommendable place for families with small children.

The Hotel Almirante is located within the recreation-park of CAFAM where you´ll find a zoo, entertainment park for children, a huge number of swimming pools, pools for children, a waterpark, walkways, restaurants, a supermarket etc. etc. It´s a nice destination, if you want to escape the relatively cold weather in Bogota. . The hotel´s staff is friendly; food is good....
