Reviewed October 20, 2008

As a group we booked this hotel a couple of months in advance, so we could have our rooms all next to each other. When we got there, there were several problems. Our rooms were spread all over the hotel area and none of us were right next to each other as promissed. The one thing that really bothered us and made us change hotels after 2 days, was that there is a small river right next to the hotel. We suspect that they let the water from the toilets right down there, because every time you walk along that little river, it stinks like hell. Some of our rooms were right along that river and we certainly didnt appreciate that.

Other than that the hotel is ok. I have to say though, the island is such a precious place, it's a shame to spend it in a hotel that is only trying to be a smaller Decameron version of his bigger brothers and sisters in San Andres. After 2 days we went to stay at Sirius Hotel, which is located in South West beach. The hotel is way smaller, the people are super nice and the beach is easily 10 times bigger as the one that Sol Caribe has. The rooms are even bigger and and if you compare prices, you are way better of at Sirius Hotel. So I definitely recommend to stay at a smaller hotel on this beautiful little island. Its way more private and you get the better treatment.

First the good parts - great location, peaceful and calm, friendly locals who could speak english and spanish, wifi in the lobby,

Now the bad parts - no hot water, poor quality restaurant (but the best on the island), very humid and hot (June)

It seems incredible to me that resort on the beach does not serve fish for dinner - ever.

The locals we spoke to indicated this is the best resort on the island, but it would rank as very second class in the USA or Europe.

We spent 10 days in December 2006 in this hotel and our experience was very good. The restaurant was excellent, and although there are not many options everything was so delicious that every single day we were so happy to have dinner there. I'd like to explain why there are not many food options, the reason is that this island is not the typical caribbean destination with 5 stars hotels, this is a real peaceful place where tourism is still quite and where you will have the chance to really unpluged from reality. In Providencia food only arrives one per week in a ship that comes from another island: San Andres. Therefore food there is really precious and there is no way to waste it in huge buffets. Restaurant quality is very good in this hotel.
Regarding the bedrooms, they were clean and confortable, some with sea view some others dont. The pool is cool and enjoyable if you travel with kids, however we went in a season when the sea looked like another pool, and our little 10 months daughter had the chance to swim in the sea as if she was in the pool.
We really had a very nice time there, people was so friendly and respect the tourist, than we wont hesitate to go again.
