The hotel is right next to the beach. Staff is very welcoming and make your stay pleasurable. Rooms are comfortable. If you book your stay directly with the hotel, they usually have a 50% off on Wednesdays if you pay with a credit card from "grupo Aval" a Colombian financial group. I recommend this hotel.
