Gente de Mar is unlike anything I have ever experienced. The food and property are certainly spectacular, but the staff is what really sets it apart. After a week, it is very clear why this special place is always on the top of the lists across the Cartagena. Thank you!!

My boyfriend and I booked a day at Isla Rosario with Gente del mar. The boat of the company sank and we lost everything (camera, iphones) without having been indemnised yet. Without having received any spontaneous excuses. One person is still missing. We do not recommend to travel with this company.

Do not go to Gente De Mar. We went out to the resort on 20 Dec 16 and our boat capsized and sunk. Tragically, a lady was killed and left all on board traumatized by the experience. This incident occurred due to massive incompetence by Gente De Mar- they hired an incompetent captain who drove too fast, supplied a ill...

The title of the review says it all. It is a great day trip from Cartagena. Go the muelle de la Bodeguita (Bodeguita dock), gate 5. Easy to access. All you need is a bathing suit, a book, sun lotion, sunglasses, and money, and you are ready to go. The beach area is very clean, the whole resort is well...

The room we got was lovely and very clean. The bathroom large and modern while the beds were good. The views were gorgeous with ocean views. The most disappoining thing was that nothing was written down as far as cost. thought we thought they said one price, when we were about to pay, they said another. They promised us breakfast...

Really worth going! The trip to and from is quick in a high speed boat. The resort facilities are not luxurious but the tranquility makes it very much worthwhile. There are no surprises. You get what you paid for. I spent a very relaxing day, reading a book, sunbathing and enjoying a piña colada. They offer a 45' snorkeling experience...

Gente Del Mar boat tours staff were very helpful. They picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off at the pier. The Resort was amazing. Views to die for. We did have a cloudy day however this did not take away from the experience. The prices were affordable. Margaritas were well made. We spent the day here and...

I was there for only a day, but I wish I could stayed longer. It was amazing. The sea and the beach is awesome. The food was really good and great portions. The service is outstanding. Ideal for couples.

Booked through my hotel a day trip to Rosario Islands and ended up here. It was the perfect trip, as I have heard some others did not have as good an experience with Rosario Islands. Our trip was fairly private - just the right number of people for the island (maybe 20 people). The beach was clean, the food was...

Amazing resort in one of the private islands of isla del rosarios. This property is great because it offers an amazing beach. No local vendors!! So you can relax and take in the view. The food is delicious they provided coconut rice, fried fish, salad and fresh fruit juice. I absolutely recommend this place!!
