The hotel has a good location in the main town on San Andres - it's a decent hotel, but far from anything special.
We arrived late and the hotel was full, even though we'd reconfirmed our stay 24 hours beforehand, and already paid the deposit. As the hotel had no space, we were put in a relatively shabby apartment around the corner - smelly bathroom, loud music from the nearby disco - not very impressed at all. The family that arrived 10 minutes after us were also given the same treatment - this was clearly not an exceptional circumstance. To give the hotel credit, they did move us into the hotel the following day, and gave us a complementary room upgrade.
My second qualm was about the price. I emailed and got one price (the "gringo price"). Then my girlfriend, a Colombian, called the hotel and got a completely different price - 35% less. They clearly like ripping off foreigners.
Would I stay again? I think not. Shame there are no genuinely good hotels in San Andres (except maybe the overly expensive Casa Harb).
