Punts faro is perfect for a relaxing beach vacation! The beach is gorgeous. Room are big and nice! Food is a bit to European for me ! I would have preferred to eat only local food. But I understand that not everyone wants to eat local food. The chef Jose and all other member of the resort are very nice... More

I definitely recommend staying at Punta Faro when visiting Cartagena! This was the most relaxing and beautiful part of our entire vacation, it was hard to leave. The island is extremely remote, safe and peaceful. The only people there are those that either work or stay at the hotel. We enjoyed relaxing on the beautiful beach and the water activities... More

Beautiful hotel in a beautiful island, 2 hours boat from Cartagena. If you like water this 2 hour trip is refreshing. The hotel and the isle is a perfect palce to rest and enjoy of a tranquil and quiet space. Beautiful rooms, delicious food, perfect blue and stil waters, beach, see, everything at your fingertips

Superb hotel, lush gardens, good restaurant, smiling and helpful personnel, great accomodations (room 43). Small private beach, caribean stereotype: white sand, crystal-clear and hot water, reefs. Snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving. Very quiet, absolutely not overcrowded. A place to forget this mad world. Not cheap, but compatible with its high standard. Hotel provides transportation from/to Cartagena (boat, 2 hours, nice ride).

Gorgeous location and very friendly staff. But for that $ they should consider including the kayaks, SUPs, etc in the price. They charge for everything but food and non-alcoholic beverages...including the boat ride to get there. Pleasant enough but poor value compared to the rest of Colombia and the rest of the Caribbean.

We booked this hotel because we wanted a somewhat remote place, with crystal clear warm waters, white sand beach and a romantic and relaxing environment.... and in Punta Faro WE FOUND IT ALL AND MORE!! I want to begin by explaining that we were planning to get to the hotel as soon as we stepped foot on Cartagena soil at... More

We spent two nights here with our two kids and both of my kids described this place as paradise! From the minute we arrived by boat, we felt welcome and relaxed. The food was good, the property is beautiful and the staff are kind and accommodating. The daily happy hour with half-priced drinks was much appreciated by me and my... More

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
