We stayed at the intercontinetal in boccagrand the night before our transfer. This was great as Regetta hotel was next door for shuttle to port. The shuttle was 2 minutes and the boat ride to Punta Faro was just over 2 hours way there, 2 hours way home. They provide water. Once on the island we were greeted with a... More

We learned about Punta Faro through our travel advisor, and are so glad we took her recommendation to go. It's a bit of a haul to get here (and the boat may not leave on time) but it's totally worth the trip. Punta Faro is a small private community hotel, with lovely huts right on the water, tons of activities,... More

This island is a 2-3 hour speed boat ride from Cartagena. In the middle of nowhere basically. That is why my husband and I loved it. The water is beautiful , you can snorkel right off the white sand beach a the resort. The owners and staff make you feel welcome the whole time. The food was fantastic and is... More

Punta Faro is a hotel two hours away from Cartagena. It is a great place to forget everything. The beach is wonderful and you can enjoy the bar service there. The sea water is clean and you can see fishes swimming around you. The food is great and it is included in the price. Don't miss the plancton tour! It's... More

We spent 5 days and 4 nights here in May, 2016. Great spot to unwind and wile the day away. While we were there it was really hot and humid the first couple of days, but after some acclimating (and a decent cloud cover), it was pleasant to be out and about...but be ready to shower a lot! For activities,... More

This island is 2 hours from Cartagena. During our visit in May we were only 10 people at the hotel, very discrete and private. The food is amazing, very fresh, plenty of options. An excellent place to relax and enjoy of the ocean, weather and the locals. Amazing service and great number of activities to participate.

My husband and I spent a week-long honeymoon in Punta Faro after we got married in Colombia in December (he's Colombian). The hotel occupies about half of a small island. It was the perfect place to have a relaxing, romantic, and fun honeymoon. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The service is fantastic. The whole staff (and the owner, who... More

If you love the carribean, relaxing, retreating, and chilling you will LOVE this place. We had been to many islands in the Caribbean, but never on the western side. We were able to TOTALLY relax here. There is a great mix of nothing to do and lots to do. First, it is very safe. There are no locks on the... More

This hotel is a 2-hour speedboat ride away from the port of Cartagena and the hotel arranges private transportation to and from the island. The boat was very comfortable and while the captain did not speak much or introduce himself, he was pleasant. Once you arrive you feel like in Fantasy Island, with bells ringing to announce your arrival. Arrival... More

My wife and I loved Punta Faro...incredibly relaxing. I don't really have any complaints and would recommend this place to anyone looking to relax and "disconnect from the world", although if phone calls and internet are needed, it's available and service is surprisingly strong.
