First great location right across from the beach(which is a public one and chairs will cost about 30,000COP for the day - don't even think about trying to sit in one without paying- the beach staff with quickly make you leave)). Hotel staff is very friendly but only the lobby

Room The room was larger than the average hotel room. We had both a king and twin bed as well as a three-piece couch! The room décor was dated; however, I didn’t mind as it was comfortable, clean and large. No issues with Wi-Fi – we were on the 6th floor. Food We paid extra

Pictures here do look better than it actually is. The hotel is a bit dated, though many hotels on the beach front in Bocagrande look they can use some upgrades and upkeep. Nothing to really complain about, has a gym, decent outlook pool on 5th floor, good breakfast. One thing is

Worst hotel. Terrible food. Terrible rooms. Terrible service. Worst staff. I tried to leave for another hotel because so bad and they refused to refund my money. Do not book here, they will rip you off and ruin your vacation.

Response from Ivan_Reyes_Salgado, Jefe de Calidad at Hotel Almirante
Responded 3 weeks ago
Mr. P. In response to your comments, we want to clarify few things. Our priority as a hotel is offering our guests the best conditions for their stay within a safe and friendly environment, therefore, we expect in return the same respectful treatment. Your behavior, hitting the counter and repeatedly shouting vulgar and racist words to our employees, while demanding a refund for your additional companion infringed the rules of respect and coexistence to which you agreed at the time of your registration, bordering this case in an assault, evident through our security system. This without counting the disturbances previously caused by you and your companion in the early hours of the morning, shortly after her check-in. We reject all forms of violence, especially as a result of an unfair claim. You can not request a refund for a service already received, arguing "I couldn’t think straight" when you agreed to pay with your credit card after being explained the hotel's policies in this regard; and even worse, attacking a woman who was doing her work in a formal and professional manner. We invite you to make an introspection of your own behavior, before trying to stain the work of a entire team with a comment completely out of context. Cordially, Ivan Reyes - Jefe de Calidad

Hello, what is the difference between the standard and executive rooms?
A standard room is your basic room with one or 2 beds, bathroom, desk, etc. An executive room typically has a separate living area within the same space. Basically it’has more square footage than your standard room.
