We had a great time, a quiet place to rest, the breakfast is very good and the people friendly... but the last day somebody toke a couple of our belongings from the room, it was a headache finishing our stay.

We had booked Sunset hotel, partially based on the fact it was #1 here on TripAdvisor. However we had an overnight layover on San Andres nearly two weeks prior to our stay and I used this opportunity to go look at Sunset. I passed Playa Tranquilo on our way and it immediately grabbed my eye. I stopped in and asked... More

I really enjoyed Playa Tranquillo, a nice place in the middle of San Andres Island, quite far from the noisy city. It is run by friendly people, mainly specialist of diving. The Bouddha on the swimming pool give the tone and the atmosphere. The rooms are large and confortable but it is not really a boutique hotel. However it may... More

Hotel Playa Tranquilo is a wonderful place to stay in San Andres. This was the tail-end of mine and my wife's honeymoon and we couldn't have been any happier. We had low to no expectations for San Andres, after staying on the busy boardwalk section of the island for a day, until we made our way out to the part... More

Relaxing stay, with decent snorkeling right across the street. Room was comfortable and quiet -- street noise was minimal even though we were on the street side. Moses (the owner) and all the staff was accommodating, responding to every need immediately. Breakfast was simple, but tasty. The only negative was the $20,000 COB (a little over $6USD) taxi into town... More

The bedroom was just about acceptable but the bathroom was very old and in need of a serious make-over. The internet didn’t work so well in the bedroom, the general garden area was overgrown. The manager/owner was off-ish at first. But the other staff were helpful. The pool is a little small and includes large doses of chlorine. But it... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Playa Tranquilo is a Boutique Hotel that is separated into three luxurious options, on four lush acres of sea front property - The House, the Apartment and the Hotel (currently under renovation). Unlike other hotels, our goal is to custom tailor a uniquely fabulous experience for each and every guest. If you choose the House or the Apartment, you will be the only guests in that residence. As a guest of our Hotel, you will feel equally secluded. Our guests prefer staying with us because they feel like they are staying at an exclusive residence on the island, and not a suffocating resort. Our property is nestled on the less developed side of San Andres, a short 15 minutes from the city center/airport. Playa Tranquilo is an island of tranquility unto itself. Whether you are interested in scuba diving, lounging by the pool, touring the islands, having a chef prepare all of your meals, popping into the sea directly outside our gate or just settling into a hammock to enjoy the sunset with an aperitif - we have it all and would be more than happy to customize your time (see services page) at Playa Tranquilo. You can be as spoiled, or as self-sufficient as you like in this idyllic setting. ... more   less
