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.

This place is a joke I cannot begin to say how bad it was, boat trip from hell to get to this crappy so called "resort" all these pictures are so fake, the beach is horrible and almost non existent, the service was the worst I've ever exerienced at any hotel, even a crappy motel in America is better than...

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

Really felt ripped off and like in prison. Don't believe the nice pictures from the brochures even photoshop would not explain the difference...no beach, dirty swimming pool. We didn't dare to try the lunch and decided instead to quickly runaway from this place.

Took the boat from busy cartegena and went to cocoliso for a day trip. Loved the slow vibe and laid nature of the complex compared with the hustle of boca grande. Not a modern resort, more a charming love boat feel. Will certainly be going back but next time for several nights. Food was fresh and authentic. I'd recommend the... More

I have traveled to Colombia many times to visit family. This time I went with my sister and a friend to explore. We LOVED Cocoliso. We went based on the recommendation of the owner of the hostel we stayed at in Cartagena, Hostal Leonella in Bocagrande. Great advice. We stayed overnight; paid 230.000 pesos incl tax. What a bargain! The... More
