Posada del Mar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2013

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.

Returned here 5 years after my first stay and still love it. Great place with spacious, clean rooms and very friendly staff. When I return to Providencia again, I will be staying here again!

Highly recommended!

Providencia Island is simple, roots and wonderful! I spent only two days there but should be spent at least two days more. I searched a lot to find this hotel but was worthwhile. This is simple and basic but even that clean and cozy. The sea in front of the hotel seems more like a pool. And there are chairs over grass instead of sand.

Room Tip: Try to find one in the second floor with balcony.

What makes this hotel excellent is the friendly service, relaxing atmosphere and location. Within minutes walk there are a few restaurants (restaurants are rare on the island), a scuba diving centre, moped and buggy rental. Hotel provided excellent tailored tours (thanks to Winston), who took us on day snorkelling trip around the island.

We went there for our honeymoon in Janueary 2012. The hotel is nice, clean and you can fall asleep by the sound of the waves...very quiet and nice to relax and rest, the people are great, the food for breakfast was nice.
Do not expect the resort or posh hotels you find in San Andres, Providencia is a different place, but this hotel has the minimum to rest, sleep and have a good time in the island.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are nice, quiter, get one closer to the reception are which have best looks.
