          It calls my attention why the guest expected to have only English-speaking peer guests... Did the guest realize that the hotel is situated in a Colombian island and the official language in Colombia is Spanish? I can understand that it might be frustrating to not understand the language, but I don't think this talks badly about a hotel. I've stayed in numerous hotels in the US and they only spoke in English :). Shouldn't they have talked to me in Spanish if Spanish is my first language? I've stayed at Sport Baru and can give testimony of good service, excellent food and nice accommodations. I personally know Giacomo and know how much effort he puts into making this hotel a wonderful place to stay. Maybe you were looking for something else and made a bad choice.
