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

Stayed only one night due to our trip itinerary. Boy did I make a mistake! We desperately wanted to stay longer! The boat ride is pleasant and really pretty.. Did not seem like 2 hours at all. When you arrive you receive a coconut! Nothing beats fresh coconut water on a tropical island paradise! The food is good, not gourmet... More

Traveled with a group of 6 to this wonderful island retreat. I used Booking.com to book the reservation and had no problem. What a great experience. Getting to the hotel: If you are in Cartagena, take a taxi to the "Hotel Regatta" in Boca Grande and take the stairs to the second floor where Punta Faro has an office. Make... More

We spent just under one week on this gem of an island just two hours (by boat) off the coast of Cartagena, Colombia. We knew what we were getting ourselves into when we booked this "Eco" resort. Despite some of the modern conveniences we've come to expect in most hotels and resorts around the world that were lacking here, it... More
