Awesome hotel!

Pros: everything is there;you don't need to get out - just relax enjoy the beach or the swimming pools and also has entertainment: Zumba. water aerobics,etc
Location: is only 5 minutes from airport, can take taxi to El Rodadero or downtwo, varies, from 10K pesos to 15K pesos..
I will recommend this hotel, I have travel many places around the world, but this is an awesome hotel! you don't even need to get out of the hotel.. Staff was nice and courteous. The only down side is the Wi-Fi was not that great, but it really didn't bother us; if you went to the first floor where the computers are you could login with the Wi-Fi, from the room not always work but all the rest was so good that really wasn't a big deal. I really recommend to use the SPA! best experience ever! it has a small groceries in the hotel, prices are not over priced and has basic stuff or wall about three blocks and there is a huge groceries. I highly recommend this hotel and for sure I will be back

Resort hotel without service

Pros: The pools and landscaping was very nice
Cons: Have the gym open throughout the day and have ice machine and ice buckets in the room, real room service would be nice and improve there WIFI.Service
From the first time I arrived to I left this hotel left a bad taste in my mouth. I arrived and request a room on a high floor with possible king bed. I was placed in a room with double beds and on a mid floor . I was told that was all they had. They did not offer to change me to a different room when one became available, even those I was there for 7 nights.The beds were very low and very hard. They did have good A\C . I requested ice and was told I would have to buy ice at the store on lobby level. They had no ice machines at all for guest, plus no ice bucket in your room. They did provide a small fridge to place ur ice in. The WIFI didn`t work at all in the room only in lobby and pool area plus very slow.I used the gym which was nice but it was only open in morning from 630 to 1030am then open in afternoon 430 to 830pm. Never seen a gym at a resort that wasn`t open all day, very inconvenient especially if you go to the buffet breakfast in the morning. The restaurant was ok food not bad but overpriced. They had a club in the tower which had a nice view also they did have live music. Would of been nice if they had a bar close to the sea for evening drinks and maybe a DJ for dancing in the evening.. There is a small strip mall down the street but a long way to walk. They do have a few restaurants located in the mall. You can take a cab, but nothing really close for walking. Santa Marta Center is about a 25 min cab ride if you want to go other restaurants No roomservice
