After two weeks of travel in South America, we visited with some friends staying here at Playa Tranquilo. It was a perfect ending to our trip. We stayed in the house, which was very spacious, right next to the pool and very comfortable. The staff could not have been more helpful. Food was delicious. We were a short walk to... More

Recently stayed at the excellent Playa Tranquilo, and for the first time on a vacation, experienced true rest in the form of deep, deep sleep. I don't know whether it was the sea air, or what, but I returned home, fully recharged! The staff at Playa Tranquilo is terrific, and I especially enjoyed the fine breakfasts and lunches served.

After 2 weeks in Playa Tranquilo--we stayed in both the house and the cabanas at one time or another during our stay--my wife and I now use the word "Tranquilo!" the way most people use the word "great!" Come here and you will forget every care you've ever had. The amazing staff work overtime--literally!--for their guests' comfort and joy, and... More

Most amazing hotel I've ever stayed at--truly earns its name of "Tranquil!" Beautiful views, comfortable, spacious rooms, and amazing staff. Moises, the owner, was amazing with helping us plan our activities while we were there--from calling and making restaurant reservations for us, to booking our day trip on a boat and subsequently driving down with us into town to help...

Playa Tranquilo is an amazing place in San Andres, with delicious breakfast, great rooms, kind service and wonderful sea view. Nearby you can dive and find delicious sea food. I stayed in one of the cabañas and it was clean and cozy. The showers are really pretty and relaxing, without the roof you can bath pleasantly. Whatever you need, the... More

This hotel made our stay in San Andres worth it all! We stayed in one of the Cabañas and the room was incredible! Beautiful sea view in the morning, comfortable and luxurious beds, nice terrace to sit on at night and peace, quiet and privacy! The shared bathroom is the only negative thing about it but the outdoor showers are... More

Highly recommended! Playa Tranquila is a beautiful, relaxing place that is right near the ocean and only 20 minutes away from the downtown excitement. Great snorkeling and there is a beautiful pool! We can't say enough about the hospitality - the staff went well above and beyond, they were very friendly and accommodating! Anything you needed or wanted to do,... More

Playa Tranquila truly is a great place to stay when in San Andres! Staff and owner are super, and the diving gear is excellent and brand new! Nice pool to cool down, and the food is succulent! Don't skip on this place!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Playa Tranquilo is a Boutique Hotel that is separated into three luxurious options, on four lush acres of sea front property - The House, the Apartment and the Hotel (currently under renovation). Unlike other hotels, our goal is to custom tailor a uniquely fabulous experience for each and every guest. If you choose the House or the Apartment, you will be the only guests in that residence. As a guest of our Hotel, you will feel equally secluded. Our guests prefer staying with us because they feel like they are staying at an exclusive residence on the island, and not a suffocating resort. Our property is nestled on the less developed side of San Andres, a short 15 minutes from the city center/airport. Playa Tranquilo is an island of tranquility unto itself. Whether you are interested in scuba diving, lounging by the pool, touring the islands, having a chef prepare all of your meals, popping into the sea directly outside our gate or just settling into a hammock to enjoy the sunset with an aperitif - we have it all and would be more than happy to customize your time (see services page) at Playa Tranquilo. You can be as spoiled, or as self-sufficient as you like in this idyllic setting. ... more   less
