It was disappointing to learn that is no sandy beach at all although the description on Booking.com said differently. it's a concrete platform with chairs and umbrellas. The sea is clean. Every day day-trippers come from 10-16 h when it is a bit lively. In the evening we were the only guests who had dinner. Food and drinks are overpriced... More

I also must say I went in low season, and we spend the night there less than 10 people. You take a boat, included in the price, in Muelle de la bodeguita in Cartagena. The boat is for people staying at the hotel and people going there for the day tour. Departs at 8:45 ish and it takes an hour... More

I've been to 4 out of 27 beaches in Rosario and there really all the same with just a few nuisances. They describe to us a white beach and white sand and to our chagrin it's not what their picture shows. The only thing that they have exactly in common are the over zealous beach vendors which some down know... More

We wanted to stay away from crowded Playa Branca, so the tourists guy suggested us this place. It takes 45 minutes from Cartagena by boat, and honestly it was kind of disappointing. The hotel is old, maybe in the old days it used to be a great resort but now it is decadent. No beach actually, there's an artificial lagoon... More

I'm writing this review after spending all day on terrible locals-only boat tour of the aquarium and playa Blanca (people nonstop trying to sell you things, huge pieces of coral in the ocean will cut your feet). Here goes - yesterday we put down a deposit with a Cocoliso rep for their VIP trip to their private resort on isla... More

They tell you will be there in 45 min.... 1h30 They tell you come back at 5:00pm .... you come back at 02:00pm Very bad artificial beach. Very bad food. They do lie about everything. Do not spend your money in Cocoliso. This is the same company which provide the ALCATRAZ Tours. This is hell.

When choosing to go to Cocoliso for the day, we were shown pictures of a long sandy beach - that's not the case. It's a run down, older place where you can go to use the pool for the day. If we wanted that, we could have stayed at our hotel in Cartagena. We actually left and went to another... More

If you'd like to get out of the over populated/dirty touristic beaches in Cartagena and Playa Blanca, Cocoliso is a great option. They do day tours (9-5) for about 100thousand pesos but bare in mind each way takes almost 2 hours, leaving you with about 4 hours of beach time. What we did was to book a night (316 thousand...

Spent 6 nights here in January 2016 and had a very good time. The place is professionally managed and the staff are courteous and efficient. It's true that when the day trippers from Cartagena come from 1030am-3pm it can be busy, but one can escape. We rented bicycles and explored the island, which has some other good resorts and beaches,... More
