Writing a review for Isla Palma is quite a challenge. The small island itself is beautiful, with white beaches and the ocean comes with various shades of blue/turquoise. The staff is extremely friendly, listens and tries to help the best way they can. However, I cannot agree with some of the other tripadvisor reviews that only have positive things to... More

Pros: The beach is really nice, the staff is really nice, the food is okay - nothing special but not bad Cons: It takes a while to get there by bus and boat, there is no information when you arrive regarding restaurant hours, what the hotel offers, where the beach is (we found out on the last day that there...

We spent 3 days there, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the beaches are beatiful, one of the most precious beaches i've ever seen. I didn´t like that they don´t give you much information when you check in, i also didn´t knew that we had to take a 3 hours bus from Cartagena and a 25 minutes ship after that,... More

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

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
