Looks like they've overhauled their website (same url) to reflect the Club's renovations. Nice pics of the new facilities and new rate sheets- now that is helpful!

Club Nautico
They just opened the restaurant at Club Nautico a couple weeks ago. Pricey for Colombia, which means reasonable for those with US dollars currently. Very upscale, gourmet food, yummy. The Italian restaurant across the street, Verona, is good too. The Club Nautico bar is not yet open.
