The hotel is located a little outside the city. When we arrived late evenings the kitchen was already closed but somebody was available to bring us to the room. The location is within a local village which means at the beach you will see mostly locals and not too many tourists which was just with us and very enjoyable. On... More

This hotel was by far the best part of our vacation! Thank you Maria and your wonderful staff! The pictures of this hotel don't do it justice, it is absolutely beautiful! It is a small hotel, more on the end of a up-scale bed and breakfast. I believe there are only 4 rooms in the hotel. The beach is quiet... More

To summarize, too slow!! 1.5 hours to get the first course is not acceptable for me even when you are on vacations. Food was simple and did not seem very fresh to me. Will not come back anytime soon. Did not take a peek at the rooms.

When we arrived at the Hotel we were a bit disappointed with the location. I had the wrong impression that it was isolated on a wide beach, but in fact it is located in the middle of a fisherman village. The road to get there is through the village, a bit favela like. The hotel itself is wall to wall... More

 On Pangea One World Expedition - a journey from Arctic to Antarctic - we spent three delightful days at Hotel Kohsamui Cartagena located on the shores of the Caribbean Sea in Colombia. More than a hotel, it is a home. The proprietor, Maria Fernandez Suarez and her husband, an airline pilot, also stay on the premises that they have tastefully... More

First a little bit about the location: Some reviewiers complain about the location of this hotel, they think it's too far from Cartagena. I was aware of this before going there and decided to stay in two different hotels. First a stayed some nights in Kohsamui, then I moved on to another more centrally hotel in the city in order...

My first impression of the hotel was Guillian's Island with modern conveniences. I was wrong. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The one minus was no hot water in the shower but the cold water was nice after a hot day. The staff was very attentive...felt we were staying with friends. The free breakfast was good. They also had... More

My sister and I spent 3 lovely days and nights in paradise. The hotel has 4 (four) rooms, tastefully and simply decorated. But we only slept in the room. The beauty of the hotel is that it simple, with hammocks on the deck, wooden floors, thatched roof and beach furniture! Only 20 steps from the beach we rested, swam, relaxed,... More

Based on the Trip Advisor reviews, I recently booked this hotel for 2 nights on a recent trip to Cartagena, wanting to add the beach experience to our trip. After a 20+ minute drive from town, we arrived in a desolate little village on the beach, whith Kohsamui Hotel de Mar sitting in the middle of it. The wind was... More

Kohsamui hotel de mar is not advertised as a 5 star resort; our concept is unique and all pictures reflect that is a rustic, breezy and 4 rooms hotel; we do not see what is wrong with this.
