This is a very old hotel that has degraded so much that it is impossible for staff to maintain. Rust has surfaced from all metal frames and balconies. The hotel staff is not trained and customer service is practically non-existent. It took 1 hour and 40 minutes to check in. Although the hotel had the Expedia reservation they demanded that... More

It is a very good hotel! Before going to Aquarium, I was unsure if Marazul was better. Staying in Aqurium was the best choice. Location is great, right in the center very close to lot of stores and the downtown beach. We stayed in a room right in front of the ocean (waking up watching the sunrise from bed was... More

Aquarium San Andres was one of our best stays, thanks to the spacious rooms and nice balcony, the amazing private beaches (especially the rocky cay) which is fabulous. The only down side are the food & drinks which are not the best quality, but still quite good.

What I loved: the view of our room. What I liked: the place is wonderful, the staff is friendly and helpful. What I would expect more: included meals and beverage - that could be really better. What I didn't like: altough there is a big sign "swim at your own risk" they do no permit you to enter the beautiful... More

The Decameron Hotel Aquarium is good. It's not awesome but it's not bad either. It's a bad 4-Star hotel but it would be a really good 3-star hotel. CLEANLINESS: The room is not so clean, it's not disgusting or something but you surely find some Latina hair laying around and the windows are really dirty. Big lack: No toilet brush... More

Very unique resort, most of the rooms are actually built in the ocean. There are other little islands to visit close by, by boat or a water motor. I gave it a 3 star because of the fact that one has to wake up very early to stand in impossible line to make a restaurant reservation, and most of the... More

First that all have to say that I am a frequent flyer and my review of the trip is with knowledge on an establishment of this type. First upon arrival, they made us go to a meeting room to make check-in, which was full of people and only one person attending. After a wait of more than one hour, we... More
