The staff is very nice and dedicated. The food especially in the three restaurants for dinner is very delicious. By the different pools one can choose whether one would like to have rather peace or actions.
Great place to stay at while visiting Cartagena. The staff did an amazing job on our wedding day. The food was amazing. The only downside to this resort is the beach and the staff doesn't speak english.
Fair. Nice service. Relatively new. Loved the quiet pool and the room, very ample. Beaches around the hotel are unfortunately dirty. Transportation to the city is always on time and is a brand new bus.
Nice, clean facility
Overall a nice place to relax. No many activities for adults on site but plenty for the kids. Clean / well landscaped property. Food was OK, nothing special. Only 1 TV channel in English. Couldn't adjust the air conditioner in the room, was set too cold. No wash clothes to shower with! Had to find a store to buy my own.
NOT a 4-star experience
This really was a disappointment. The pictures look MUCH better than in person. The rooms were large but bare and felt cold (limited decor). The couch had stains and was dirty. The bed had the hardest mattress I've ever encountered and this caused my body to hurt every morning. The food was terrible and the buffet did not have proper temperature control or adequate coverings (flies were an issue). We had to go to a nearby store and get snacks and drinks to get by the first two nights. The beach looked like mud and had debris and the chairs were dirty and ragged. I didn't bother to try any water sport equipment based on the lack of maintenance of the beach furniture. After two nights at this dump, we gave up in the middle of our stay and went to stay at a very nice hotel in the beautiful Walled City. From that point on the trip was stellar! The accommodations are sad. Do not waste your time or money......
