Went from Dec 31 til Jan 14. I have to start by saying it's a very safe place. Local police everywhere. I got lost walking downtown on several occasions and got scooter rides home from various locals! All rooms have an ocean view. The staff were amazing and prompt, most spoke english. The hotel was clean and the grounds very well groomed. Food was very good in all the restaurants with a good choice. I was in block 4 and all was perfect there. The hotel is a five minute walk to downtown. Beautiful docks to suntan on with very comfortable chairs. You could snorkel right off the docks as there were lots of tropical fish around. Variety of activities and always lots to do. Many well healed south americans travel to this island and not alot of north americans, so you truly feel you are somewhere tropical. I will definitely go back and stay and this resort. The water was warm and not too rough. Very hot (35+) the whole time we stayed there, just a bit windy. If you like the nightlife go to Coco Loco Island Disco up the road, starts getting busy after midnight! Music everywhere is mostly salsa, meringue, reggaeton and some top40 north american. Internet was precarious at times in the hotel lobby. Truly amazing place!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the midst of an Antillean environment, this resort has an exceptional architecture with circular towers overlooking the sea at ‘Punta Hansa’ – at the northern end of the Island of San Andres – which allow for wonderful panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. These buildings are alongside a long wooden dock that leads to a natural pool in the sea and with an aquatic platform ideal for snorkeling and other water sports. The Decameron Aquarium is located approximately 10 minutes from the airport and is a well sought out location for tourists since the longest and most beautiful beach of the island is located only a few blocks away, surrounded by a boardwalk, parallel to a commercial area with restaurants, discos and the most exclusive bars. You will enjoy an enchanting paradise that can be explored completely on foot and where a cultural mixture of English, Spanish, Pirates and Corsairs can be explored. ... more less
