Poor 2.0
Horrible hotel. Start to finish. I paid $300 a nite for a hotel that left me and my pregnant gf waiting 4 hours in the lobby for out room saying they had no rooms as we watched dozens of people check out. No paper towel or towels in the kitchen. At checkout time they advise I have to pay for the dish soap In the kitchen and that some dishes were not washed so they would levy a charge for unwashed dishes. They charge 5 star prices for one star service. Very over priced food. The resort is infested with aggressive pigeons and birds. Worst hotel experience ever. Will never return

Poor 2.0
Jis place was terrible! The rooms smells like mildew and so do the blankets and towels. Also there is a lot of construction going on and the place is packed. The free breakfast is sub par and you have to sit in a patio fighting with birds so they don’t eat your food (they are very aggressive!), the staff chases them away with water. Finally, our check out process was the worst we were standing in line for one hour and still not luck! There were dozens of people checking out and just one person helping them. It was terrible cause someone had to radio from your room to verify your consumptions and then the process was very manual at least 15 min per person... I approached the lady at the desk as I had a flight to catch and couldn’t wait any longer, she couldn’t have cared less and said I had to wait. Told her I couldn’t risk my flight left my cards and went to get a taxi (btw if you order a taxi to the hotel for their staff prices are double, just woke to the corner outside and some local taxis will provide you with cheaper and better service). I got an email from them later on the day saying that I needed to make a transfer to their Colombian saving back account to pay for the bottle of water I consumed. I replied that they could use my credit card on file and explained the situation and the poor customer service... again, they didn’t care.
