“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

It is the best hotel option when traveling to Providencia!!!! The service is remarkable. The rooms are not very nice but the bed sheets are changed daily and they are equipped with A/C, it is the best hotel room you will get at an affordable price.

Posada del Mar exists since 30 years, but was included in the Decameron Hotel Group. It is a clean, nice establishment, right on the ocean, all rooms have a balcony to the ocean and the rooms a simple but clean and with air condition, as it can get quite hot in Providencia. Breackfast is included and you can get there all excursions, snorkeling with excellent guiding. The B&B is right to a very nice beach, calm and transparent water and the B&B Miss Elma, also Decameron Group, with an excellent restaurant, where you can have breackfast, lunch and dinner! Providencia is a beautiful island, with beautiful beaches, lost in the past!

Room Tip: All rooms are good!

Stayed here last week for a couple's getaway, rooms are small, with all the basics, very clean and a balcony looking out to the ocean.
If you are going to scuba dive check out Felipe's just down the road.

My father-in-law picked this hotel based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. It isn't a bad place considering that Providencia is not a cheap place to stay. It is located between Pasha Bay and Freshwater Bay and is about a 15 minute drive from the airport. It is right by the sea, so much so that the water's edge is no more than 10 metres from your back door. It has a lovely pool and nearby is another hotel called Hotel de Morgan where you can buy provisions, and hire motorbikes and golf carts to tour the island. There is free wifi in the hotel reception and all the rooms are clean and have air-conditioning. Breakfast is a little quirky in that you have 4 set options - none of which include cereal unless you want to pay extra for that.

The thing that irks me about this place is the room. We stayed in room 108 and my parents-in-law stayed 2 rooms down from us. We didn't have a fan and they did, we had a shower that was a trickle whilst their shower had a proper jet of water. Unfortunately we only noticed these things on our penultimate night and it seemed too late to ask for these things to be rectified. However my gripe doesn't end there. The ceilings are paper-thin, so much so, that you can hear everything that is going on in the room above you. With your front and back doors there is a big gap at the bottom. You could argue that this is for ventilation but it also allows passage for lizards, mosquitoes and ants - the latter will invade should you be foolish enough to leave anything vaguely sweet on the floor like a food wrapper. Being so close to the sea means that you are constantly hearing the waves crash against the sea wall. There are also some very keen roosters that like to star crowing at 05.45 every day (even when it is still pretty dark),

So the moral of the story is check out your room carefully and if there is a group of you see if you all have the same quality of facilities. You might also want to bring some earplugs.

Room Tip: Don't pick room 108. Upstairs rooms may be quieter.

My husband and I stayed at Posada Del Mar at the end of September. We had originally booked ourselves at another B&B but it was so hot when we got to Providencia, we wanted a hotel with a pool. As a result, we ended up looking at a lot of hotels first hand. We decided on Posada Del Mar as it was the nicest in terms of room quality, cleanliness, location and attentiveness of the staff and owner (Winston and his mom). You can also rent mopeds directly from the hotel. It is great value for money and the best maintained property on the island. We highly recommend Posada Del Mar.

The highlight of our trip was kayaking through the mangroves with Jeanet. Jeanet is associated with the hotel and arranges adventure activities such as snorkelling and kayaking. She is very knowledgeable about the area and has a great personality which made the event super fun. The landscape where the mangroves grow is breathtaking and we definitely recommend kayaking through it with Jeanet.

The island is like landing in the middle of the set for Lost!!! Such a beautiful place full of lush greenery and beautiful beaches. We loved every minute here. Hotel was really nice and clean and had lots and lots of room. There was a grocery store near by where we bough beer and sola and snacks for the kids to put in our refrigerator. Hotel has really delicious breakfast. It also has a really nice pool but no bar service, maybe because it was October and there was not many people there. The hotel has a balcony with a hammock that we used a lot and enjoyed. I think we walked a lot on this island but u can rent a golf card if u like. they are available in the main office, The beach in front of the hotel is not really safe for kids due to it has a lot of rocks but u can take a taxi or walk a little farther and have an amazing place to swim. The food on the island is just perfect if u love sea food. We ate so much different stuff, it was delicious. We took a boat to crab island, don't miss this place, It is so amazing!!! We also went deep sea fishing and had a wonderful time as a family. Best trip yet. If you are wanting a beautiful place to relax this is a place for u.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are great here. they all have the view of the ocean.

Good value for your money, very clean and people very serviceable. The boat around the island from there is nice and good to take a good initial snapshot of the island.
Pool is nice and rooms are clean.
Do not expect a 5 star, it's just a clean B&B to enjoy the incredible Providencia beaches.
