Stayed in the Irotama for 2 nights on a recent trip to Colombia. We rented a beachfront villa which were pleasant and clean (with a great hard bed), but nothing to get hugely excited about. Irotama is a large spread out resort consisting of a couple of towers and bungalows with direct beach access as well as a large pool with slide. The beach is nice,clean and safe, although the constant jet skis driving past do fill the air with a petrol smell especially in the mornings. The hotel has a number of restaurants and a couple of bars, but we found ourselves at the main restaurant/bar due to vastly expanded choice. The food, especially the breakfast was of good Colombian quality though. The resort has quite a few kids and is definitely children friendly as well as lots of organised activities for both adults and children. Agree partially with the comments on the staff at check-in, but their lack of good English and my lack of good Spanish may have also contributed to some confusion. Real highlight: The sunsets over the ocean are to die for. Overall pretty good experience, but only if you are looking for a resort feel.
