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

My husband and I are divers and have seen all kinds of Hotels from Motel 6's to huts on the ocean. We Both love sun, sand, but mostly... 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...

My wife and I stayed at the Aquarium from January 12 - 19, 2015. If you are looking for a five star hotel to be pampered in all the best, then this hotel is not for you. I would say the food is above average and there is 5 restaurants on site. The dock bar is 24 hours and the... More

The Aquarium is very nice for San Andres, but for most North Americans might find it a little underwhelming. The Bad: - The rooms are dated. While the do a pretty good job of cleaning the place, it could really use some TLC. The AC is also a little anemic. We ended up leaving it on 24/7 so they room... More

I stayed only one night at the Royal Decameron Aquarium as the Isleno was sold out. The location of the hotel is magnificent and the sun deck on the water & natural swimming pool unsurpassed. If you are lucky enough to have a room with full sea view you feel like living on the water. The fish a la carte... More

We stayed at the Decameron Aquarium and it was a run-o-the-mill all inclusive hotel. Rooms are very cool, the round buldings are built basically in the water. Very nice balaconies to relax and watch the sunset. Check-in and food service is a messy, complicated issue. At check-in you have to fight a mostly undisciplined crowd all trying to get checked...
