Good location near the beach

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 04 Sept 2014
The hotel is a few blocks from the beach in the El Rodadero district, a real good location. The hotel was clean and had a good breakfast. The rooms are plain but adequate. The staff is very friendly. The hotel did not have hot water in the shower however with 90 degree weather I did not really miss it too much. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Get a room on the back side of the building. The view is not very good however it is quieter. I...

Whilst the hotel seems to have remained in the 80's, it has been a pleasure to stay there.
This hotel is definitely shaped for local tourism. I found very little foreigners here. I did not probe personnel skills with English, I kept with my spanish, and worked fine.
There is no elevator in the hotel, but staff will take care to carry your luggage up to your room. Good thing because stairs a a bit uneven and pretty steep.
Rooms are big and clean, with great A/C, and a regular bathroom with NO hot water. Furniture and style would need a good step up to the 21st century though.
I enjoyed the pool, which is not of great depth, but largely sufficient to enjoy a refreshing time. The nearby bar tunes local Vallenato music, which can get a bit irritating if, like me, you are not too much into that kind of music.
Breakfast is average, with a regular choice of ham, cheese, omelette, fresh fruits, fresh juice, bread, local arepas, and of course coffee or hot chocolate.
There are some business salons too, that lead business clients in the hotel. Not a problem in itself though.
Funny detail, when you check-in, the receptionist gives you a pink paper wristband that you have to wear, just like in big resorts. I did not understand the need of it, and found myself a bit embarrassed to be marked as cattle. But I later found out in the Rodadero area that many people were wearing wristbands of all colors.
I found a very helpful staff. For example, as I already made the check out, I asked if they could keep my luggage for one day, as I was willing the go to Tayrona Park for one night. They kept my luggage free of charge with a great smile. Nice attention.
