It was an incredible experience and we enjoyed our time at this hotel, it's location is perfect to take different activities such as going to the aquarium and playa blanca, tayrona park and other places. There is a little options for fun and parties and the nights has not quite fun.
The hotel is very clean and comfortable, the elevator looks like old and unsafety but you can used the stairs.

To be honest, the sister hotel across the road has the pool and sea side views, however it is literally a 3min walk across the road and you can use shared facilities between the hotels. The hotel was clean, and the staff very friendly. The buffet food was hit and miss - sometimes it was excellent and other times it was just OK. Overall though I would stay again and was happy with the accommodation.

Except when management fills-in and is running the show at breakfast. Is nice that guests can go across the street and use the ocean front pool at their sister hotel. Rooms are impeccably clean. Front desk staff is outstanding.
