PLEASE NOTE -Went there many years ago. San Andres is a cool little island unfortunately we were there during the murder of a Cardinal and the country was in unpheaval. Our resort was visited by government officials for an emergency conference - and quickly covered in armed military and helicopters. Quite unnerving. We had a cameral stolen from our bag... More

It's an all inclusive resort that has everything you need. Good food with different restaurants some of them are buffet style. Cocktails all day, the liqueur doesn't have the best quality but it's good to be an all inclusive one. The rooms are just perfect...they are perfectly clean, they can clean every day if do you want it. It has... More

I was there for one night with two other females on May 12th, 2015. We got there and we had to wait to get our key for about two hours. In addition, all reservations to restaurants were already full. We paid $450 for one night which I thought was very expensive for such an old place. Do not go there!!... More

This hotel needs a refresh - of its rooms, amenities...well, just about everything. It's 2015, not 1995. Let's begin with the rooms: Having done many road trips in through the US, Canada, and Mexico, I can safely say that our first room (tower 7 if I recall correctly) was in worse condition than some Motel 6s. Wouldn't even insult Red... More

We visited this hotel in April 2015 for 4 nights, We had a good stay here once passed the most ridiculous checking in system I have ever experienced. We arrived to the hotel at 1pm and check in was 3pm, we were advised once going to reception to go to the room down the path, once we did this we... More

Nice hotel in San Andres Island, buffet restaurant was OK for breakfast and lunch, snacks were nice (sausages are outstanding), dance shows were great. Rooms are comfy. Open Bar. Everything as expected.

I have been going to San Andres for thirty years. I have travelled extensively throughout the Caribbean the Pacific and India and Thailand. San Andres is my favourite vacation destination and the Decameron Aquarium my favourite hotel on the island. I introduced my better half to this island and this hotel ten years ago. She does not like going to... More

The location is really good, since it's close tho downtown San Andrés and therefore to the best beach in the island. Families and children take over the hotel often, so be prepared if you thought you could get a romantic trip here. They even have those "animators" who go loud and crazy around the hotel all the time. Great for... More

The hotel has an excellent location right on the ocean, the facilities are well distributed, the people is very friendly, the tours are kind of expensive and you can get the same kind of tours chipper right outside, the rooms have the best view of the island, the internet sucks and it's expensive, I just could not believe it wasn't...
