What a dream vacation - no TV, no internet in the room, only in the restaurant/bar area! The place is located on a beautiful lagoon, isolated, accessible by boat only, therefore not crowded. You spend your days by listening to the waves and birds singing, swimming, kayaking (for free), snorkeling, boat trips. Perfect for nature lovers, not at all if...

This hotel was a nice peaceful break from the city. Keep in mind you can only get there by boat - and you will get wet! Not too much English is spoken so be prepared with your key words to use! Great night activity to a bioluminescent area in the water - do this if you stay overnight.

The owner (Jachimo) of the hotel is very involved, and will do whatever he can to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and most if not all are less then a minute walk to the ocean. The hotel offers complimentary paddleboards, kayaks, bocce, and a volleyball court, and will also help you in booking anything else...

The access is not the easiest on Earth, what makes your trip better, believe me, less people have access to this wonderful place in the Colombian Carebean. The staff in this property is really friendly, the food is very good (specially breakfast), and the characteristic blue sea is right there! You just have time to enjoy!

The place is very comfortable, the beach is right there and the room was beautiful and had everything we needed. Food was good, but not remarkable. The staff was helpful and eager to resolve our demands. we didn't want to do other than relax, but there were nice options to do activities like kayak, visiting other islands, etc.

I had a great time at Sport Baru. A little expensive but it makes up for it in its friendly staff. Adolfo the manager showed us a fantastic time on the excursions. We saw the plankton that lights up and went snorkeling on the Rosario islands. This is definitely a nice little getaway :)

I liked this place. Good food served right on their private beach. Cholon is right across from it as well. Great place to relax, but you can also have a lot of fun partying with the people at Cholon. Make sure to do the Rosario island tour. Alfredo is a really cool manager. He made our stay very convenient.

This secluded hotel is a nice getaway from busy Cartagena. The rooms are simple and comfortable and the hammock on the balcony was a nice touch. Unfortunately, the menu at the restaurant was limited, as they were out of several items. I recommend the evening trip to swim with the plankton. Overall - nothing fancy but polite staff and very...
