I read all the reviews before I booked, for both tripadvisor and booking.com. To all the positive comments I totally concur - the service was great, the hotel and pool areas were supernice, clean, and the nicest surprise of all is the food was quite good - not bad at all which I normally expect in these places. There are two restaurants if I´m not mistaken (the one near the pool and a pizza place at the end of a ¨ecological walk¨. The pizza restaurant is newer and has a very nice ambiance, with big fans to blow away any bugs that might want to fly past you. The hotel is not modern but totally suitable to the area and more a classic, but it is not at all rundown. I just loved it really. We came with two toddlers and they have shallow areas in the main pool area so they can be part of the general pool area without having to be away in a toddler pool area (where there is one also).
The best part of the whole Girardot area is that it´s a dry heat (not at all humid) so even at 38C all weekend, it was perfect and warm (not oppressive heat like Cartagena). No idea if there is anything do in the city itself, but it must be developing a bit as there a new Carulla supermarket there and other resorts in construction.
Bravo to the hotel - I think you´ll be pleasantly surprised.
