All in all we had a great stay here.
The best things were the food and drinks. For the price we paid I was stunned at how good the food was. The lunch was oustanding, there wasn't much to choose from but that did not matter because everything was delicious.
Obviously the wine was not great, but thats because it was a cheap all inclusive hotel! What i loved was that I could go down to the bar whenever I wanted and order a Pina Colada free of charge, and they make awesome pina coladas!
The seafood restaurant on the top floor was excellent and has great views, the pasta restaurant on floor 3 was not so good. Try to book dinner at the seafood restaurant early in the morning, otherwise it will be full and you will have to eat at the pasta place.
The other good thing is the location, it is in Boca Grande, but at the end closest to the old city.
2 bad things about the place:
-There are only 3, slow elevators, we were lucky that we booked a room on floor 4 which meant we could take the stairs, if you book a room on floor 20, be prepared for long elevator waits.
-The organized tours were far from organized, the trip to Playa Blanca is not a trip to Playa Blanca at all, it is a trip to another private beach 1/2 a mile away, which is not as nice and a little over-crowded. Also the so called "organized tour" on the Chiva Rumbera (party bus) ended up with me having to pay some guy in the street to take us on the bus. But the party bus was actually the best part of the trip and not to be missed (all you can drink rum and a vallenato band!)
