Loved this hotel. It's really beautiful. It has parrots, toucans, sloths, deer everywhere, really beautiful. The rooms are spacious and really comfortable. We had a welcome drink. I would really recommend going to restaurants close by.

Hotel grounds are beautiful, then you go to your room unfortunately. Stayed in the one of the older buildings, room 555, and the room smelled like old age and mold. Every morning, we would wake up to condensation on the walls, floors, windows. However, room service did do a great job mopping it all up while we were away. Not...

Stayed here while on a tour of Columbia and the room and service was tops!! Every detail was perfection. Had breakfast by the pool every morning. The colorful birds and deer walking around added to the experience. Everything you need or want is within a short walk and the beach is right across the street. HUGE pool. We felt like...

Old property but a lot of updated renovations, great food and excellent service from everyone, we will go back at anytime. We choose the plan with only breakfast included and by far was the best decision, very generous in their portions and is basically all you can eat breakfast. The rooms are very clean and updated.
