This place price gouges....the rooms are all double connected with other rooms via a paper thin door, can hear people talking...not very private. The charge you for a safe key to your room...send you to the room with a remote control for your TV...I guess people were stealing them..yes you will need a safe key for sure...evryone "highly" advised you do...rooms are not secure at all...old keys and no electronic locks...a very run down tired out resort..cheap linens bedding fittings...everything bottom end. Food is mediocre, entertainment so so and loud, can hear it throughout the resort till 11pm every night. The owners of this resort are making a killing and need to reinvest it back into the place.
This is a typical working class type all inclusive with cheap booze out of plastic cups...they pour the wine out of a box and the main beer is old milwaukee. This may be part of Colombia but in no way resembles Colombia, it's more of a run down Carribean island with a blend of spanish and english Caribbean people, the whole island is beautiful to drive around in a cart but is in extemely poor shape with poor residents for the most part living in shacks, the only people with money are the tourists. For some reason the island is swarming with army patrols on every street corner, mst be serious crime without them for obvious reasons...the locals are flat broke and dirt poor.
- 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
