Although the beds are very comfortable and the rooms are pretty clean, they are very run-down and outdated. The furniture, shelving and cabinets have all been neglected and need to be replaced. Our sofa was stained and the upholstery was torn. We could hardly open and close our balcony door and it banged and whistled all night with the wind. Closet doors did not open and close right. Dust and grime had built up for a time in the crevices of the closets and cabinets. Rust in bathroom and not enough hooks to hang wet towels/clothing. The hot water only works part of the day, and even when it is scheduled to be working, it doesn't always. Then you can only have it scalding or cool. The a/c works but the thermostat did not. We had to keep turning it on and off as we'd get too warm or too cool. The beach at the hotel is very small and the sand bags for erosion are not very attractive. The pool is nice, but too deep for young children to touch the bottom, so they get bored quickly. Service was good. Lobby area is pretty. Breakfast buffet was ok, but not spectacular. I would not recommend staying on the fourth floor as the gym is VERY loud! Although the ocean is beautiful, the beaches on San Andres leave a lot to be desired - littered with trash and there are lots of stray and neglected dogs, which is very sad (this was not the case at the Sunrise, but the beach there is too small and water is not so pretty). There are some really good local restaurants including La Regatta and El Gourmet Assho. Renting the golf carts to drive around the island is fun. I would not return to this island considering the expense to get there. There are many other Carribean destinations that are much nicer with cleaner beaches for the price (Mexican Riviera, Bahamas, Virgin Islands, etc.). This island has a LOT of potential though. Unfortunately we were unable to visit "el aquario" and "Johnny Cay" due to high tides all week. I'm sure that would have been really nice.
