If you don get an interior room, you will not be able to sleep until 2 in the morning. Second, the bed and pillows...

We had the full board package and ate all of our meals at the hotel except for 2 in 11 days. They try very had to come up with something different each meal. Some of the meals were fair and some were great. The value was excellent for what we paid. The room was average at best. Noisy on the...

My SO and I spent a couple of nights at the hotel "Arhuaco" last January. Our experience regarding the quality of the service provided by the staff, the location and value was great!!. There were a couple of things that I would like to mention in this review. The first one is location. It’s a fact, location, location, location. The...

The room was spacious and clean with a balcony, albeit with dated decor. Good value for the price I paid. Poor WiFi speed in lobby, and non-existent reception in my room even though it's advertised to have WiFi. Staff friendly and helpful. Good included breakfast (but don't eat at the hotel restaurant for any other meal--overpriced and lousy food). I...

When we arrived at Sol Arhuaco our internet reservation made on venere.com was not accepted, they said a double room would cost a lot more than the 90$/night we paid and they would have to charge us more. After about half an hour we finally managed to get our room for the price we booked on the internet (90$/night, which,...

I stayed here only one night when passing through. The room was comfortable and clean but a bit worn. Bathroom fixtures were a little loose and hard to use... fabrics a little worn. Location is very close to beach in El Rodadero and is broad and sandy. Water is nice. The pool looked very nice but I chose sea. I...

Hotel Sol Arhuaco is a nice and friendly hotel (about 40 rooms)one block from the ocean on a good location. The hotel is well managed and well maintained with probably the best restaurant in Rodadero. Rooms are good and the pool in the back of the hotel is a great place to relax. As we visited the hotel in high...
