This place was nice. Nice sand and beautiful water. Was busy but you can walk down a bit and be alone. This had a smaller pool then Isla Encanta. We took the snorkeling your which was like an hour and 1/2. Saw coral and tropical fish. Was nice but I liked Playa Blanca better!

A wonderful place at Islas del Rosario where you have an almost private beach to the clear blue Caribbean sea. There is also a nice lake to swim. The bar in the pool is great too. Not expensive. 1 hour by boat from the city.

I took a day trip from Cartagena to Cocoliso. It was such an amazing time. Open swim up bar, beautiful beaches, amazing pool and all around fantastic experience. There was no one on the resort and it was so relaxing and serine. Highly recommend!

I just spent an amazing weekend at this resort. I have no complaints. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. The room was clean and well organized. It has a pool and if you want you can go snorkeling or diving as a trip while there. There is also an aquarium nearby. My favorite is the hammock and you... More

I've read the other reviews and they are pretty accurate. Nice pool with a slide which we enjoyed but there is no beach here. Very unfortunate. The pool does offer a swim up bar. The ocean water wasn't very clear on the day we were there either. The lagoon is pretty cool. Check it out.

We took the speed boat ferry to Cocoliso for a day trip because we were told you can't go to Cartagena without visiting the islands. The water quality around the islands is pretty clear, a thousand times better than the murky ocean water you find on the beaches in Cartagena. We weren't looking for a high end resort because we...

Cocoliso was recommended as a good beach break for a couple of nights by staff at our hotel in Cartagena's old city. Once we got there, we couldn't figure out why. For the price, the rooms and grounds of the hotel could use a complete overhaul. Everything is probably 25 years old and worn. The beach is basically nonexistent, with... More

I ended up at Cocoliso Resort with my friend after a tour of Colombia. We were very tired after sleeping in tents and shelters, we needed some resort-like couple of days. We decided to stay at the Cocoliso and we were not let down. Although we were the only 2 guests sleeping there (august is a low season period in... More

We went to this hotel basically after finding over the interne that this was the most advertised and price accessible hotel in Las Islas del Rosario. It is a big complex in comparison with the other hotels on the islands. It is not a 5 star hotel but will do the job for a night or two max! There is... More
