“Charming Family Run Hotel”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

Nice, charming family-run hotel in front of the best beach in Providencia! Have a chat with Paulino (the owner), go for a snorkel or dive with Enito, enjoy a wonderfully fresh seafood meal at Divino Niño (which is a 2 minute walk down the beach), or just relax beach-front in the chairs provided by the hotel.

Good location right at the beach, excellent service, nice breakfast, ok standard, different rooms. We stayed here 8 days, in two ifferent rooms, as we moved into a bigger when that was availeble. I only Missed Internett, but that's part of the charm of this beautiful island.

I´ve been several times to Providence Island. Different hotels and different seasons, but the best experince that i´ve had was spending a long time in Sirius Hotel. It becomes yours home. Paulinos´ service makes the diference. Island tipical cousine, beach walks, horse back ridding and diferent tours on boats or walking. Totally recomended!!

Room Tip: Ocean front, first two balconies.

I decided to stay in this hotel as it was one of the best rated on the island. However, I was totally unimpressed with it as well as with the beach across from the property. For a rate of over 100 USD a night one could expect better.

Location: The property is located across from one of the three beaches on the island. I visited all three and that beach was the less nice of them: It is quite rocky but the worst part is the sand you walk on the water. Indeed, it feels mushy, which gave me the feeling of walking on mud, However, most unpleasant part was when I grabbed a handful of that sand and felt the smell, which was akin rotten eggs. Given that there isn’t a sewage treatment system on the island who knows what goes into that sea. The hotel is also located in an area with few restaurants and quite far from the downtown.

Property: The rooms have a fridge and a TV (flat screen) but other than that they were pretty basic. The shower water at lukewarm at best. There is a safety deposit box in the rooms but you need two keys to open it, one that is given to the guest and another one that is in possession of the hotel manager. This can be inconvenient, especially that there is no staff working at night. In that regards, the safety of the hotel consists on closing the entrance door with a rock from the inside. The island is supposed to be pretty safe, but that feel kind of unprofessional. The hotel has apparently dial-up internet access that you can borrow but most laptop computer nowadays don’t even come with phone jacks for that. The ceiling of the room had some slots and some lizards sneaked in and out from them. They are hard to avoid but the noise they made at night was nevertheless annoying.

Service: The staff was courteous. I was, however, unimpressed by the fact that they only took cash.

Had that hotel been the only one on the island I would have most likely left after the first night. However, I decided to move to the Sol Caribe hotel -which I had ironically avoided because it had some negative reviews here- and that made the whole difference in my stay on the island. For pretty much the same money I got a much better room and location, a swimming pool, internet access, professional staff and the best beach.

The Island is a real peaceful place, the tourism is still quite and where you will have the opportunity to relax. 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. Dont forget to get one of the diving packages with Carolina Osorio... The best diver with all kind of certifications around the island...

I traveled to providencia for the scuba diving and fell in love with the Island! After exploring the island, I have decided that South West bay is the best beach to stay on. The Sirius hotel is located right on the beach and has the dive shop a few steps from your front door. I could not have had a better experience here. Everyone who worked at the hotel and dive centre were awesome, friendly people and made my trip unforgettable. The rooms were better than I expected - basic, clean and comfortable. Make sure you travel around the island - take the boat tour, go to Roland's bar (awesome!), and go diving. I will definitely be back to Providencia and the Sirius hotel is a great place to stay.

This is a really lovely place to stay. If you are wanting all day cocktails and rowdy music this place is not for you, but then, probably neither is Providencia. This hotel is the sort of place where guests chat away to one another over breakfast (for which you can pretty much choose what you want to eat each day and it's made freshly for you) and ALL of the staff are ALWAYS lovely, such a friendly group of local people who are very proud of their island (as they should be, it's beautiful). This is a local business rather than the Decameron domination. The rooms are cleaned thoroughly every day - not just between guests. The beach in South West Bay is just beautiful and anything that you want to do can be arranged - snorkelling, car-hire, diving, horse-riding, boat trips, hiking.... all of this can be arranged seemingly at the drop of a hat by Paulino. Paulino and Alvaro can't do enough for their guests, really lovely people who know the names of look after their guests, Alvaro will meet you off of the Catarmaran with a taxi already lined up for you. Providence itself is an incredible place and part of me wants to keep it a secret to keep it special. A wonderful hotel and a wonderful island I will return!
