Recomment the suites called Bohio, they are right at the beach, excellent location, excellent view, food is amazing, street vendors leave you alone since it has a private beach. Strongly recomment this hotel, all inclusive, amazing pool, rooms are big , confortable and clean. Again I recomment the Bohio suites.

We stayed 2 nights at Irotama to relax at the end of our vacation in Colombia. By US standards, this is not a five star resort, but when traveling to a country like Colombia I find it unfair to hold this resort to these standards. We paid around 120 USD per night for a villa (standard room) this included breakfast....

My husband and I are Americans living in Colombia. We have lived in numerous countries and have extensive travel experience. We rarely write reviews of hotels due to the great variation in experiences and expectations by country. Having said this we were greatly disappointed in Irotama. Consequently, I feel compelled to write a review to dissuade other travelers. The grounds...

This is the worst hotel i have been in Colombia. There are of course worse hotels, but this one is really a rip-off. It is featured as a 5 star hotel, which is just obvious by watching its facilities that this is not 5 star hotel. I felt really disappointed with my room, with the spinning room, with the beach...

My husband and I travel extensively and are very easy going. I can’t remember any time that we have been so disappointed with a hotel. We went expecting a 5 start hotel and found a disaster zone. Most of the hotel was under construction. Our room was extremely disappointing. We were paying around $300 per night and the room had...

Hotel was almost empty (low season). I liked the food at restaurants, many things to choose from, and everthing is fresh. Lots variety of fruits for breakfast. If you order something else from the fixed menu you have to pay extra. Alcoholic drinks are not that good, and very expensive, only wine is included for dinner. Best if you take...

This December (2008) will be the 4th time that my wife have stayed there, therefore I cannot give a negative review. The resort is a medium priced resort so you cannot expect 5* service, but the all inclusive rate for food and some drinks is excellent value. There are a choice of restaurants to suit most tastes, however the predominant...

Stayed in the Irotama for 2 nights on a recent trip to Colombia. We rented a beachfront villa which were pleasant and clean (with a great hard bed), but nothing to get hugely excited about.

Problems started when one of the recreation team members decided to sink my 9 yr. old face into her birthday cake while she was blowing the candles. She was gasping for air as her nostrils and mouth filled with icing and had to be aided. The person who did this just ran away from the site....... At checkout be careful!!!...
