renovations - kid friendly
the property has great potential, but when we were there, the gym and the main pool were closed for renovations. did not know that in advance. property is across the street from the beach with fabulous views. food was great but restaurant service was a little slow. very popular place with Colombians so check in took a while. but they brought refreshments while we waited - it was a nice touch. its a very good location in order to get to anything water related and Boca Grande shopping. This is a very large property that is best if you have kids.

Big property but the maintenance is terrible. The staff also needs training. Harassing guests should be the last thing a hotel should be doing. I see an element of racism with the behavior which was truly unfortunate. I cannot stay here a second time

Sadly one employee, Lewis made our experience very sour. I must acknowledge others in reception like Indrid and Luis were very helpful and polite, the restaurant staff was amazing too. Yet after finding one of our rooms was unsatisfactory with creased and apparently unclean bedsheets and a live spider on the pillow which I recorded on video. Lewis lacked professionalism. He deliberately denied me a room change preferring to argue about it and sent us away 3 times. I literally had to pitch a fit and seek the manager myself which took 2 hours of my families times after a long trip. During COVID no guest should be obligated to lay their children in a bed and room considered unhygienic. By contrast the manager Juan was very polite and excused the frustrations we had been subjected to and expressed that contrary to the zero availability Lewis insisted on there were intact several rooms available and a change would not be a problem. That was all we needed. To make an already stressful situation worse the following day Lewis added a child fee to my bill which I had already prepaid creating another scene at the reception desk. We had at least 3 situations including an unwarranted accusation letter left under my door which I found very distasteful considering we had a 3 night stay and rented out several rooms at this hotel. I appreciate the efforts of the other staff members but compared to the attention and upkeep at another area hotel I would not return to this hotel.
