If you want a secluded getaway from the local beaches, I highly recommend this excursion. It is not cheap, but is definitely an indulgence that fits the price.

The check in and boarding at the dock went smoothly. The boat ride was smooth and provides opportunities to view and take pics of the coastline.

Once you get to the beach club, you feel like you have been transported to paradise. I had the VIP package, and the bed was very comfortable. The service was very good, and you feel pampered. You actually feel a little sad when you have to leave and get back on the boat.

You do get a lunch and a drink (with lunch) included in the VIP package. Any other food or drinks is extra. The freshness of the sea food is top notch. They actually come around to your lounge area with crabs, octopus, lobster, etc... fresh out of the water and ask if you would like to purchase any of them.

To enjoy your day and indulge properly, plan on spending additional money on food and drink during your day trip.

On the negative side, the beach is rocky. I do not mean little pebbles, but big rocks that you have to watch out for when going into the water. The water is carribbean blue, but the rocks take away from the quality of the beach.

Hola!! gracias por contarnos tu maravillosa experiencia, nos alegra muchísimo leer cada una de ellas. Recomendamos a nuestros nuevos visitantes traer zapatillas de playa para que disfruten de la experiencia completa, ya que nos encontramos en una isla que tiene un ecosistema con distintos tipos de corales y por ende tenemos en nuestro mar.

I highly recommend you bring Colombian pesos (money) with you so you can properly tip those that work on the island as well as making extra purchases they have available.
We did take a boat ride to the island (recommend sitting in the back of the boat) Once we arrived we were greeted by all smiles and a "house" drink. We had reserved cabanas prior to arriving and were happy with the views we had (worth paying a little extra) The cabanas were a great add to lounge and just take in the scenery.
We had a lot of fun here celebrating our friends bachelorette party. We drank, danced and mingled even with the locals who worked here 🤫 lol. They do have a DJ who played a mix of music. He takes requests too.
On the shoreline, beach area, there was a young man selling live crab and lobster. He was affordable, so we bought (paid with pesos) all of the crabs and lobsters he had (decent sizes.). He prepared them for us, and I must say there's nothing like freshly prepared seafood. We also purchased a meal from the restaurant. I chose the whole fried fish, coconut rice, small salad and 3 tostones with salsa on them, it was delish! It comes with dessert and a drink. They have several food options to choose from which includes a dessert and drink (non alcohol) We pay extra for the coffee with milk.
Apart from the cabanas, dancing and restaurant, there is an older man who sells handmade local style jewelry of beads and shells etc. he is more than affordable (paid with pesos but gave him a tip with american dollars.) A woman who was also there in a separate area selling handmade jewelry but these were different and pricier (paid with pesos)
Massage is available for an additional fee and recommend for relaxing even more. The young woman who massaged us was good and reasonably priced (tipped her with American dollars)
We did tip each server, bartender, and the DJ separately from our bill only because we had some who were more attentive than others and they made our experience that much more special. (we also work in the hospitality industry so we know how this pay thing works 😉)
All in all, we would definitely come back and recommend.

I purchased the VIP experience, but wished I hadn't. VIP loaded the speedboat first going to the island, but not coming back. VIP was last to load and leave. The trip to and from the beach club was really good. The VIP food was okay but you have to purchase your own water and drinks. It probably stated this somewhere and I just missed it.

If I were to do this again I will not purchase the VIP package. Although secluded, we had to endure THREE HOURS of dredging directly in front of us. Not only was it loud and you couldn't hear the music, but the exhaust coming from the boat was aweful. And the guys performing this necessary task for Cartagena's water supply, were hanging out in the VIP area during this time. Being on the "non-VIP" side would have been much better with better access to the beach.

Buenos días, gracias por su opinión....lamentablemente el día que usted nos visitó (Conozco bien su caso), el proveedor que nos surte el agua potable para la isla tuvo que adelantar la hora de despacho, normalmente esta tarea se realiza sin visitantes pero estamos en una isla remota y no podíamos quedarnos sin agua para nuestros visitantes. Tambien es cierto que el Area VIP es bien grande y se invitó a todos a moverse tanto a otra zona del VIP como al Area Club que esta incluida en el Paquete VIP, lamento que se haya quedado en el mismo lugar y haya tenido q presenciar este trámite q si es un poco ruidoso y molesto. Si quiere repetir la experiencia dejenos saber y con gusto le damos una cortesía por cuenta de la casa...feliz día

Worst experience that I have ever encountered. Their drinks are extremely overpriced and there is not actually a beach present at the property. Just steps into the ocean and no sand to enjoy. There is significant disorganization at the check-in. You register and sit and wait with no communication. The when you arrive to the island the service is non existent. Over the course of the day we had to summon a server at least 6 times that I can remember. Bottles and drinks are comprable to prices in NYC clubs On a Saturday light. The VIP DJ plays house EDM and does not take requests. I will admit the lunch included was tasty. The gosh and paella had a lot of flavor and left us full. Then the end of the trip they crammed people on to the boat (photos of captain and crew attached, who would not answer when confronted for names). There was no warning of the rough trip back, then with people throwing up and crying, there was no mercy shown by the captain or crew. I love Colombia but this experience taints my opinion of the country. I have gone to Gente De Mar Resort (also on Isla Grande, and highly recommend it over Bora Bora) and organized transport through them and it was a much more pleasurable experience. Skip this overpriced tourist trap at all costs. The lack of care for the guests and desire to make money left us with a feeling of resentment and with physically empty pockets.

We were sold the VIP version as we were told the regular tickets had sold out, which I doubt. With the VIP tickets you do get to wait to board the boat in a shaded area and get there first. On arrival you’re greeted by the staff doing a song and dance and then ushered through the day beds to the VIP section. Now the only plus to the VIP section is that there are less people with a small section of sea to swim in, so it’s not over crowded. The cabana was also very nice. If this is something you like then I can recommend the VIP tickets.

They play this awful music that I can only liken to a MoS Ibiza chill out album of the 90s. Dreadful. We waited well over an hour for our welcome drinks, despite asking three members of staff.

I decided to purchase the snorkelling add on and left my boyfriend on the beach. They asked us what time we wanted lunch and we decided 1pm. The snorkelling started at 11 and I didn’t get back until 1.30pm, so lunch was cold. A bit more organisation would have been nice. The snorkelling itself wasn’t great. The reef didn’t seem that healthy at all. The team that take you snorkelling don’t speak English at all. There were a group of bilingual Americans who helped me and I’m very grateful for their help! The reef they take you to was shallow so you’re lowered into the water. The boat you snorkel off of isn’t really designed for snorkelling and you have to get back on the boat via a very flimsy ladder, at an angle and once again you’re relying on others to help.

So in all if your young and want to party go by all means to the regular club. If you want a relaxing trip to the islands I would look elsewhere.

The reason for my one star was the horrendous boat journey back to Cartagena. I understand that sailing back into port is choppy due to tides and wind conditions but what we experienced was ridiculous. I knew from another boat trip we took that these tours tend to speed back. The boat sped all the way and appeared to be racing their colleagues. Several times we thought the boat would tip over. We were absolutely drenched, it was like having buckets of water chucked on us. In my experience of speedboats this was not safe and they couldn’t care less about the passengers. I lost my contact lenses in the process and my boyfriend’s phone was damaged. We’d paid for transfers which it turned out were not included. This wasn’t a problem going as our hotel was close by but walking back, soaking wet and unable to see was no fun at all.

The information provided is misleading. This is not a place for rest or relax. It is not a real beach club- indeed the beach is minimal (supper small with a small piece o sea- no social distancing, people don’t wear a mask). It is instead a club/ open disco; a party place to dance and get drunk. Different music comes from 4 big different speakers, it’s a total and laud cacophony. It’s is impossible to enjoy and explore the islands and the sea. Staff is unwilling to turn down the music (we didn’t ask to turned off, just to turn it down a bit because we had a headache). Some guests were rude (they were drunk and threatened us to even bring their loudspeaker louder, when we kindly asked to turn a bit the music. staff didn’t do anything, indeed supported them! They response was that this was a party place and if we wanted tranquility we should leave (we were keen the issue was where!). We felt a bit unsafe to be honest.
For the sake of transparency and honesty, the site should be clear about what to expect so people can make an informed decision before spending around £60 on the day trip! Very disappointing.

The beach club is beautiful. We purchased a premium cabana at the dock in Cartagena, which is the only way to get an ocean facing one. The service was good but there were a lot of additional charges once you arrived at the island. I didn't like how the manager of the club physically dragged people to the dance floor, literally lifted me out of my beach chair. The music is loud so not a quiet beach day.

I absolutely loved it!!! By far my favorite of the Rosario Islands although I have no complaints of the others either. But this island is amazing! I do agree, that this island is catered for a younger crowd with the music and all and I am in my 20s - so I loved it. I went with my fiancée in August 2019 and fell in love. Everyone I feel is treated like VIP.
The morning of, I woke up a little sick of my stomach and so I wasn’t sure I was going to make it. When I got to the island, our personal waiter took such great care of us and served me a tea with lemon and honey which he assured me would make me feel better in less than 5 min. He was absolutely right! Staff overall were fantastic and the ambiance with crowd and music was awesome! I danced the whole time and was sad to leave!
I am actually planning a wedding in Cartagena, and as a day trip would love to see if there are any large group rates offered? Because we will return.

The boat ride to the island was somewhat calm and the island itself was very nice. The boat ride back to the mainland was horrible. The guy driving the boat had the boat on full throttle the whole way and the ocean was choppy. My wife was sitting in the front of the boat holding on with everything she had, so she wouldn't fall out. If you do go on this trip I would recommend sitting in the back of the boat.
