    The hotel does not have a ramp or elevator from the entrance to the lobby which makes access difficult if traveling with children or older adults.

    Great value
    Very nice hotel, great value. There is a sightseeing service in the lobby, which is convenient. Tayrona is a must see. The staff was helpful with other recommendations. The breakfast is excellent and better than some higher end hotels that I’ve stayed at.

    Great hotel but watch out!
    I was happy overall however, I had to pay the IVA tax for my girlfriend. The staff at the hotel said that it was because the reservation was also in her name, however I only put her as one of the occupants. Regardless I had to pay it. I would’ve liked to have been made aware of that since it was a bit of a nasty surprise at the very end. Other than that, the hotel was great, clean and had good service.
    Andres, us1 night romance trip
    Very Good 8.0
    Hotel is relatively new and clean - although starting to show some wear & tear. Location is central in Rodadero area and convenient to local sights - although neighborhood seemed rather desolate the night I was there. Staff is helpful - although could be more friendly and welcoming to guests. Included breakfast is basic, but good. This was my 3rd stay at hotel and will probably return anytime I need to be in Rodadero area.

    Rodadero is cool.
    Its a nice place to spend a few days. Rodadero beach is great for kids because there are no waves but it gets rather crowded. The food was good and pretty cheap. Weather was great the entire stay of a week. I met some nice folks here and will come back and stay at the same place.
