This is a nice & quiet place to relax a few days. The rooms are really cute, although the shower is just a bucket full of water. But it was completely okay. The hotel is worth the price & the meals are included. They really take care of you, when you stay a little longer, so that you don't get... More

This is a very relaxing ecohotel in Isla Grande. We stayed two nights in a big private room. The rooms are very clean and even have mosquito nets. The shower is a bucket of water with a coconut shell. The hosts are great, very friendly, but probably you have to speak some Spanish. The food is quite good, although lunch... More

if you are looking to disconnect from it all, this is the place to be. Only a 45 minute boat ride from the Marina, you will find a little piece of paradise. Pretty inexpensive,you can get accommodations, 3 daily meals and some of the most beautiful, uncrowded beaches you will ever see. Ana Rosa, the owner/host, a very strong and... More

We had an amazing 2 day stay with Ana Rosa & Manuel at Las Palmeras, Isla Grande. The cabañas are very clean and although rustic, you have everything you need. The grounds are stunning with fruit trees, lovely shade, hammocks and communal dining areas. You certainly feel like part of the family and the wonderful hosts Ana Rosa & Manuel... More

Eco Hotel las Palmeras is a very relaxing, hidden gem in the islas del rosario. The eco hotel is located near a paradise beach on isla grande, the food is incredible and Ana Rosa will go out of her way to make your stay more pleasant. We were a group of 8 and we all stayed in the cabin, which... More

If you are looking for beautiful beaches near Cartegena and want to avoid the chaos of Playa Blanca, then Las Palmeras Eco-Hostel on Isla Grande is the place to be! The hostel is located 10 minutes from a beach with calm, beautiful turquoise water that is perfect for wading. Also 10 minutes from la laguna encantada, which lights up florescent... More

This hostel is located inland on Isla Grande. There are individual cabins with thatched roofs, some with private bathrooms and some without. The shower is lovely, a big bucket of water and the shell of a tumba fruit to scoop it with, and the rooms are clean and nicely furnished with mosquito netting, which we didn't need. The place is...

Ok , well this was my first introduction to an eco hotel experience and I have to say I found it overall a disappointing one. The accommodation is a wooden shack, which although authentic if you are looking for that ‘Bridge on the River Kwai’ experience, was however expensive compared to decent hotels in Santa Marta which my partner and...

Definitely one of the coolest places I've ever stayed. We were thinking we'd just come for one or two days and ended up staying 3. We were worried that it would be busy but it was really quiet (right before Christmas) with only 1 other couple staying there. A few others would come during the day to use the beach... More

My husband and I decided to spend a night at Las Palmeras after reading all the reviews and mentally preparing ourselves for what to expect. We knew there would be no showers and no AC (we actually brought our own mini-fan that was battery operated), and were really expecting a local experience with hospitable hosts (we had read that Ana...
