We stayed at Punta Faro for three nights during a trip to Colombia this past April and were extremely happy with our stay. The island is small but pleasant and remote enough, especially in the evenings, to make your stay feel special. The staff was incredibly hospitable and the meals served were very good. We lucked out during our stay... More

Where to start... We had such an amazing experience in Punta Faro. After a lot of travelling around South America we were looking for a relaxing, beautiful place to finish our trip, to recharge our batteries before heading back to our busy lives and I am so happy we found this place. We were going to stay here for 2... More

We went to Punta Faro for two nights in 2014, loved it and returned for three nights in March, 2015. And three nights proved to be so much better. It's a great place if you know what to expect: two hour boat ride; no hot water, zero night life, all the things you've read here. But the upside trumps all... More

The sea is wonderful but the beach is small. The food is very good and various and during the day is possible to order some drinks and fresh pineapple and coconuts. There are several activities to do like kayaking snorkelling… (from 5 p.m. to 7p.m. there is the happy hour and everything is half price!). Anyway being a 4 star... More

Punta Faro is very good at doing what it offers ... A relaxing experience in pleasant and remote surroundings, which are well maintained. My partner and I stayed four nights. I can't comment on price as it was part of our package holiday. Food is unexceptional but hygienically prepared and varied. We were pleasantly surprised that the hotel made an... More

Very convoluted process to get there, but once you figure it out, well worth the experience. Book your stay at Punta Faro's office on the second floor of the Hotel Almirante in Bocagrande, on Avenida San Martín # 6-5 (tall yellow hotel overlooking the beach). We spoke with Luz and she was very kind. Meet back at the hotel at... More

From a family travel point of view, Punta Faro has a lot of advantages. A top and remote island location, a big and well maintained palm garden lay out that leaves a big feeling of freedom, a very nice beach without day visitors or vendors, a 3 meal daily restaurant service, a safe walking path around the hotel, kayak/sailing/surfing/snorkeling/diving/biking rental...

Just returned from 3 nights at Punta Faro, and would definitely recommend making a stop here on your Colombian trip. Most of the reviews are spot on, it's remote, no hot water, but beautiful and peaceful. Read up to manage your expectations and you won't be disappointed! Our observations: *boat ride was 2 hours. Depending on number of guests, it's... More

The island is 4 star. The resort is 3 star. The room was 2 star. I would never use the word luxury to describe this place. The staff was super friendly. Huge language barrier. Only 1 staff member spoke Spanglish and gave us misinformation. He was adorable but walked away when he couldn't answer our questions. It was hilarious. Totally... More
