I came here for my birthday in May 2015, and hoping to return again this year. My trip was amazing the staff treated me like their own family. The staff helped out with any accommodation that I needed, such as booking a snorkeling trip, booking a photo shoot at the resort, and I even had forgotten my tooth brush and they even helped out with that. I do speak Spanish so it was very easy for us to communicate. Everyone is always smiling. I got the king suite where I had been was very spacious which I liked a lot. The view was nice. Be ware though of the geckos, but those are all over Colombia.The suite had a nice little Jacuzzi out back. They have a quiet pool outdoors and they had a different pool where you could have drinks and be a little more louder. Their own part of the beach owned by the hotel themselves. The only reason why I am giving this hotel four stars is because I was expecting their food to have more Colombian food in the buffet and menu, after all I am in Colombia. I want to taste more of that Colombian food. That is the only thing though, but other than that I can not complain. These guys will take care of you and I can't wait to see them again!
