If you are looking for a beautiful, serene place to spend your time on San Andres, you will not find a better location than the recently established Playa Tranquilo. Located a short 20-minute bus ride from town with gorgeous views of the rocky beach as well as easy access for swimming or snorkeling or, if you prefer, you can lounge by the Zen-inspired pool located on the property.

When I stayed, they still did not have internet or WIFI, but that only added to the tranquility for me, though be warned, they ARE planning to add it!

The on-site dive shop makes diving a breeze and there are so many fabulous sites.... and the dive instructor, Moises, is top-notch! SInce diving was the priority for our trip, this was really important for us.

It really is a magical place. I want to go back!!!!

Hotel is located on the side of San Andres where there is no beach, just sharp rocks and waters edge, if your after an island stay please stay on the other side rocky cay is one of the best beaches there is, back to the hotel the staff where very friendly especially the lady at reception! the breakfast was very good they cook you what you want egg's pancakes ect, there are the cheaper rooms at the front which looked very nice with good water views but i dont think they had privated bathroom/showers???.. we stay in the rooms up the back with the kitchen in the middle.

The hotel offerd dives, moto rental (which is essential to get anywhere) but is much much cheaper from the centre(about half the price) reccommend getting a bus to the centre and renting a moto or kart if you are on a budget they cost about $60000 cop a day

all in all a good hotel for a reasonable price but if your looking for an island stay with sand deffinatly not the place for you stay on the other side even the centre.

Room Tip: if you dont mind sharing bathroom and shower go for the cheaper room very nice see view's with balconing.

Playa Tranquilo is the perfect place to relax and enjoy San Andres. Our room was very neat, clean and beautifully decorated. The place has a relaxing, home-like vibe. The owner and the staff will do everything they can to make sure you have a wonderful stay. Also they offer you the possibility to rent a buggy or scooter. If you want to do a dive course or just some fun dives, Playa Tranquilo is the right place to go; the owner owns and the ocean and sealife are magnificent.

Room Tip: The rooms are great and all of them are near to the swimming pool

We just spend 3 weeks at Playa Tranquilo with our kids (2 & 4 years old) and I must say that Playa Tranquilo is the place to stay in San Andres...!!
Moises (The Director) is THE man...He & his team will do anything possible to make your vacation the most relaxing time you can have!!!!!..If you decide to go for diving you are also in the best hands with him & his collegues. I strongly suggest to go for diving with him !!!
The beds are very good quality, the cooking done by the ladies is VERY good and they are all also very very flexible..
The location itself is very well keept and is very clean....On daily bases the teams take very good care about all spaces (the pool, the garden, and all other common locations)....
The place is very well located on the Island..It is on the "non windy" side and it is very very quiet & calm wich is not necessarly the case everywhere on the island...
As you can imagine we do STRONGLY recommend Playa Tranquilo we just LOVED it!! Just enjoy !

Room Tip: We had the Villa with its 3 bedrooms/bathooms = PERFECT !!!

My wife and 2 children and myself just got back from to absolutely wonderful weeks at Playa Tranquilo.
The staff did everything that they possibly could to make our stay enjoyable. I was trying to think back of all the places I have stayed in the past and I would say that the staff at Playa Tranquilo beats them all.
We got served a breafast of our choice every morning at the time that we desired. Our apartment was cleaned every day and was kept very clean.
If you are looking for a party atmosphere then do not stay at this place. Playa Tranquilo is a nice quiet place on the quiet side of the island.
The good beaches are on the opposite side of the island but we rented a cart for the 2 weeks we were there and went everywhere we desired and when we desired.
The good snorkelling and scuba diving is on the west side of the island close to Playa Tranquilo.
We are definitely going to go back to San Andres and to Playa Tranquilo.

Room Tip: We stayed in the apartment and were very happy with it. Has 2 large bedrooms with bathroom for each bedroom. The kitchen is fully furnished except for microwave if you wish to do any of your own cooking. The staff at Playa Tranquilo will cook for you anytime you want if you ask.
