The place doesn't produce any wow effect and the food is just regular, but it is worth a visit as it is very close to the wonderful playa azul, where you'll be able to go thanks to a boat shuttle provided by the hotel.

We spend the day at the hotel after extensive research on how to spend a day in the islands staying away from the street sellers and crowds; so we decided to but a day pass to this small hotel with private beach and we got more than what we wished for. The pass included transportation from Cartagena in a speed...

Long overdue review of a Magical Relaxed Place where I spent my December Holidays. Visited Cartagena for the Holidays, and as a side trip, a group of friends and myself paid a visit to this highly recommended spot in the Baru area of Cartagena. What a Treat! 1.

We parked our yacht off of the coast and enjoyed volleyball, breakfast, dinner and left. We'd consider staying here, the rooms were quaint and are going to come stay here at some point. Very remote quaint and rustic.

This is a fabulous small hotel based amongst the pretty mangrove islands about 1 hour from Cartagena by boat. If you email the hotel they will give you the info to catch the boat. It cost about 7000 to take a taxi to the marina from Cartagena and the boat is 60000 each way. Its fast, don't be tempted to...

We walked into the hotelafter staying at another top hotel on the Island. The staff was charming and thoughtful but then became very evasive about prices. I thought the hotel said they were 47 dollars a night but had gone back and fourth between coppas and dollars. When we received our bill for 2 days it was more than any...

The place seems beautiful in every way and we wanted to stay there for 3-4 nights and their site showed availability. But I'll tell you, their customer service is slow. It's hard to reach them and they are not responsive. Seeing reviews about screwups with reservations, we did not want to reserve online and make the big and tremendous effort...

I'd have to say don't come. But first I'll tell you the good stuff. The staff is fantastic. It's romantic. The food is not too shaby. Agua azul (the beach that you can visit during the day) is beautiful. That being said, we got nothing we paid for online. When we arrived, they told us we didn't buy the package...
