I decided to enjoy my vacation in San Andres and while looking for a nice hotel, I found that Sunset Hotel had very good reviews from other fellow travellers. I decided to stay in this hotel and I was not dissapointed at all. The location is great for those who like to be away from noisy streets or crowds. The service was excellent and the food was delicious!
The hotel is located in a very nice and quiet area of San Andres (Southwest). There is public transportation from the hotel to the town and main sandy beaches (San Luis, Rocky Cay, etc). One can also walk from the hotel to "la piscinita" and the blowhole or just rent a bicycle!
For those who like diving and snorkeling, this hotel is the best option for that. The hotel is just in front of one of the best spots for snorkeling and diving in San Andres! and it also has a nice place where one can sit to contemplate the beautiful sunsets and sea views.
The family who runs this hotel is amazingly helpful and kind. They gave me good tips on local restaurants in San Andres and in the cays (Bibi's place!!). There is a lady who prepares local food/snacks on Sundays and it is just 10 min by foot from the hotel. You can ask at the reception for directions to get to Marleny's place.
The food at the hotel was very delicious, fresh and healthy. There are some outdoor tables where one can sit and enjoy those delicious breakfasts!
Lastly, I would like to thank the family who runs the hotel for making feel like home. I fully enjoyed my vacation and I terribly miss San Andres and its people.
