    The hotel is not close to any other restaurants so it is likely you will eat most of your meals at the restaurant in the hotel. The food at the restaurant is very bad. It was the worst we experienced in our trip to Colombia. We all came down with food poisoning after eating hamburgers in the restaurant and had to visit a hospital. I have never been more sick from something I ate in my life. After checking out the the front desk staff reimbursed us for the cost of the hamburgers. It was paltry compensation considering the time we lost on our vacation and the terrible ordeal of becoming violently ill.

    The food in the restaurant is awful. You are stuck eating there as there are no other options close by. My friends and I got sever food poisoning and were hospitalized as a result
