2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I´ve been there several times and have seen how it has declined. Maintenance and renovation are totally inexistent. The food is not worthy. You are in an island in the middle of the Caribbean sea and the fish they serve is basa from China. Our last two trips, one in July, the other yesterday (12/26/14) On both occasions, the boats...

I bought a day pass for Cocoliso from Cartagena. The pictures in the brochures made it look like Cocoliso sits on a nice big beach, but it doesn't. The "beach" is a strip of a very rocky area with a thin dusting of sand. The lounge chairs were very uncomfortable. The resort grounds were very beautiful and the pool was... More

The food was excellent. The pool was very nice. The dudes selling necklaces were annoying. The beach area is a little bit dangerous. There is algae growing on the concrete next to the where the beach is. I saw an elderly man slip and break his leg. The staff handled the accident very well, but please beware of the beach... More

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...
