Had a great time. This is not Colombian high season so the service was amazing, relaxed and everyone had a smile. We had a large group some had newly renovated rooms others not. Still mine was not renovated and was fine. Rooms are large with a view to the pools and ocean. They all have a hammock in block 6-7. Not sure about the others. It has a nice tropical feeling.
The breakfast buffet was great, ample fruit, local fare and healthy stuff. Service great. Tried different restaurant. Lunch buffet was good but expensive. Some of the other restaurants have specialties and were well priced and excellent. Portions are large and good for sharing.
Can not say enough about the service. Drinks by the pool are expensive but good- mojitos, coconut-limeade and more.
The hotel is a 5-7 dollar taxi drive from the old city. Not much to do close to the hotel so the best bet is to stay in or better to go to the old city at sunset. There are activities for kids ( some of our group used them and found them OK), there was live music at night in different areas. Several great pools to select.
Beds were excellent and many extra pillows supplied. Easy to use safe box for valuables was supplied in each room.
