It was a bad experience to get to the property after a long flight and find out the reservation is not there because it did not go through even when expedia charged my credit card. They did not have enough rooms for us to stay and my family was already staying in the hotel. Please expedia next time make sure the reservation is there.

Unfortunately, not much people in reception speaks English and check in takes a lot of time , BIG thanks for concierge Davidson (hope spelling is correct). It'd be nice to have info board about service of local people on the beach, before you will be asking to pay big money for old surfboard and etc, especially when hotel described own water activities on the website. The food and drinks are very good, cats and dogs with other birds around )on)under tables are not welcoming IMHO. Overall, it's good place for vacation!

A nice family style resort designed mainly for Colombians. Food choices and amenities were fairly good but a little too limited for my liking. Quite disorganized and slow on check in so first impression was poor but things improved over the course of the week.

Muy buena comida, en general buena atención por parte del personal. Buenas intenciones y amplias, la recreación es muy buena. Los aspectos a mejorar son los siguientes: 1. No cobrar uso posterior de las instalaciones del hotel. 2. No cobrar pasadia para niños de 2 años Los recomiendo. Resaltó la distribución de las áreas
