Cons(most of my review): The bus that takes you to the boat is a 3 hour ride and makes a stop in a poor coastal town called berrugas (verrugas?). Staff warned us to keep our belongings safe and not to let anyone help us with our bags. When we got off, children swarmed my husband and I begging for money... More

Ok, so by the picture this looks like paradise and it some ways it is, however in other ways it is not. I will do my best to give you an accurate portrayal of what to expect when and if you travel here. First, you have to fly into Cartagena, from there you will take a two hour bus ride... More

The bad; The hotel is in serious need of refurbishment, sound travels very well between rooms, so you know where I am going with that ..., no one... More

I've read a lot of reviews before deciding upon this place so I arrived there with low expectations. I was positively surprised. Yes, there is no luxury, amenities, room service or any other pampering you expect from a 5 star hotel, but is still very worth it. Birds steal food from your plate, you can have a romantic dinner facing... More

Hazzle free Island with a good (basic) all inclusive concept This is not a 5-star hotel on a bounty island, and you are not promised that. This is though a really nice island with white sand beaches, only your hotel and a few locals that you do not see unless taking the eco-walk around the island (recommended, use something to... More

I spent my honeymoon in this hotel and I loved every minute there. It was relaxing, private and romantic. I am a bit shock from the other reviews because I do not feel we were in the same hotel. I do understand that if you are single and want to have fun and go out at night this is not... More

   I will preferance this review with the fact that i am a pretty spoiled traveler. I tend to stay at high end hotels. There is little to no information on this resort, so I will try and give an extensive informative overview   The San Bernardo islands looked to be a better option than isla Rosario for some beach time...

I would not recommend this hotel. It had a nice setting but: - Our room had no window whatsoever, which made it like a cave - Loud music from speakers on the stage on the dock blared at various times of day and was inescapable, even in our room. We might not have been the target demographic, but I looked... More
