Besides it being a beautiful place, the way that Carlos, his wife, family and staff welcomed and treated us was one in a million. They really are loving people, which you can feel in the air and taste in their food. The only possible improvement in this place might be the rooms, but since the area is so beautiful, one wouldn't spend much time in them anyways. It's the best place that I've been to in Colombia!

Room Tip: the cabañas are beautifully located

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.
