“Quiet and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

I had a pleasant stay and overall a great experience at the hotel. The place is like paradise with a beautiful view, excellent service hosted by Mr. Michael. If you are looking for quiet and pleasant rest, then this is the hotel to stay.

This was one of my most pleasant stays yet. Definitely took me off the daily routine. Staff was attentive, food is to die for, and the environment is very relaxing. Overall i had a great stay at Mar Y Sol.

It was a great decision to stay at May y Sol for our vacations in Colombia! The hostel was very charming, peaceful and enjoyable; the rooms are very clean and provide enough room to store your luggage and keep your things organized. The service was excellent and everyone makes you feel like at home, especially Michael who was always very attentive and professional . Food is really good and they offer typical food, perfect to get that local experience! We also found very convenient the shuttle service offered by the hotel! We truly felt very welcomed and comfortable, just ideal if you want to get the experience as a local.

Hosteria Mar y Sol its a beautiful place to spend your vacations, its close to one of the most beautiful places in the island call west view, although its not so close from downtown the hosteria provides and excellent shuttle service . its a really quiet and peaceful place where you can relax and enjoy the pleasures of nature. the food in the hosteria is the best food i`ve tasted in the island. thanks for this amazing experience.

Tripadvisor Fail!
We booked this hotel based on the positive reviews here - but were very disappointed. We knew the hostel was far away but there is literally nothing nearby. It is down a 1km dirt road off the coast. at least 5km from even a small shop. 17km away from the main centre. This would have been fine, except there is no transport available - a taxi will cost you 30USD round trip. Hire Scooters from the hosteria were all not working. Basically we couldn't leave once we arrived around 4pm. We were made to wait for an hour on arrival as the credit card system wasn't working until we politely asked if we could please go to our room and sort it out later. We ordered dinner at 6pm from the restaurant and it wasn't served until almost 10pm.
The next day, now being informed that we couldn't travel after 6pm (you can not use a hired golf cart or scooter to travel to this part of the island after 6pm as there are no lights! it is actually policed) we ordered dinner in the morning for later that night at 6.30pm (presuming it would be late.) We were right - we were made to wait at our table until 9.30pm.
We left after 2 nights and stayed at the Sole Carribe. Glad we did. On return from Providencia, we stayed at the GHL Sunrise - even though these hotels have a lower rating here, our experience with them was a million times better.

Ofrecemos nuestras más sinceras disculpas; para las próximas oportunidades, no descuidaremos ni el menor detalle. Gracias por escribir.

We came to the Hosteria for one night stop over on the way to Providencia. We had wanted to stay near to the airport, for our early flight the next day, and were surprised it is a little further than we expected - Google Maps was wrong! However, the journey was well worth it. Superb home cooked food in a lovely, peaceful setting. The accommodation was basic, but clean. Really welcoming owners, who happily drive you up, and back to the main town. Which, in comparison is really not a very peaceful, nor picturesque place to stay!

Hosteria Mar y Sol is a beautiful and cozy place to stay at San Andres Island. Great service, everyone makes you feel special and happy. Delicious breakfast with Colombian bread and coffe, fresh fish, shrimp, lobster, etc for seafood lovers like us. Gorgeus decoration inside and outside with large green areas and pretty pool. Perfect location for relax and enjoy the ambiance of the island. The place is really clean! Every day there is a transportation Hosteria - Down Town - Hosteria. But if you want to be on your own like us there are bikes, motorcicles and cars available for rent. We loved and enjoyed our vacation at Hosteria Mar Y Sol and we hope to come back next year. Thanks a lot for this unforgettable experience. Gracias Sr. Luis you are the best!
