Jerónimo, Carlos and Carlolina's 4 yeas old grand son was a wonderful company... he played with us, he showed us the most beautiful fish and crabs... we loved the food... was so caribbean and delicious... our dogs really enjoyed swimming and eating fryed fish... one of the bests places for scuba diving!!

This place was truly paradise. We were here for New Years Eve and Carlos and Caroline were just wonderful in creating a warm and friendly 'your home is our home' atmosphere that it was truly hard to leave. The food was amazing - most meals were freshly caught seafood and wonderful vegetable dishes, our final dish of 2015 being lobster. The rooms are simple and our room occasionally had a few splashes of sea water, but lying in your bed listening to the sea hit the shore is just magical. Coral seas, white sands - PARADISE. We could not have welcomed in the year in a more perfect place!

Let's get real here... Isolated, clear water, live coral paradise in the south carribean, come on now! This place is actual paradise, and then to top it off with the fresh seafood! I will never go to Colombia without visiting Carlos and Carolina at Puntanorte! Their hospitality takes a spectacular getaway to the next level, and Carlos' cooking is second to none. Freshest and most delicious seafood that you can find anywhere! Open air bungalows, and rustic accommodations on a virtually private part of the island! It's as close to heaven as you can get! If you're into serenity, glorious company and sleeping in the sound of waves surrounding you... Go! Now!!

Sentimos mucho que te hayas llevado tan mala impresión de nosotros, y de nuestro lugar, lo que ocurría en ese momento eran condiciones absolutamente extraordinarias tanto climáticas, como con el personal. Lamentamos mucho que hayas sido victima de la inclemencia de la marea mas alta en los últimos años. Esperamos que en general hayas tenido una buena experiencia en Colombia. Te enviamos un fuerte abrazo y los mejores deseos para tu hermosa familia, queridos hermanos del sur.

Carlos and Carolena were amazing, and took great care of us during our stay. We wanted something a bit rustic, and this was perfect. The views of the room couldnt be beat, and the bed was very comfortable. You are basically outside with a roof, but Hotel Puntanorte makes this luxurious.
The highlight of the whole thing was Carlos's cooking. He is absolutely fabulous, and I have been craving his dishes since we have returned home.
We kept wondering if we should have stayed on another island, but I am very happy we did not. The staff will take you all around in the boat privately, stopping at other beaches on Tintipan and Murica, and will show you everything the Islas de San Bernado have to offer. We stayed for 3 days, and it was perfect for my wife and I.

I was forced to book 5 nights in advance for my family, with 3 kids (youngest is 5), and the cabin was under the waves at high tide. One of the beds was soaking wet as waves reached it underneath - I attach a picture. Then the owner moved us to another cabin, only for 4 (so I had to sleep in a hammock), but which was higher so drier, although it swayed under the wind. The access to it was very slippery, as it was also being flooded. We managed to stay one night, but in the morning the access to the cabin was outright dangerous as waves were crashing. The soiled water from the toilets was returning as the waves pushed it out - and there was no water in the toilet tank, so we could not flush.

On top of it the staff is unfriendly, we almost had to beg for coffee at breakfast, and dinner was a bowl of pasta.

We asked for a refund, which we managed to get but less than 50% (the owner agreed to 50% but then returned less than that). All in all it was COP2.5M for a terrible night.

If despite all this you decide to go nonetheless, remember to bring your own water and snacks.
