It would take so little to make this so much better. Four of us reserved three months in advance for two days on the island and confirmed 12 hours before arrival. Imagine our surprise when one couple was told after waiting for an hour in reception (with email confirm in hand) that there was no room available and they could...

The location is superb and the water gorgeous - just like in the photos. The room was fine and all you need for an overnight stay. The food was good, nothing special for the price. I have some advice for the management which would help them improve: answer you email enquiries. We had no idea where to go at the...

I was recommended Gente de Mar by a local expat for a relaxed, uncrowded beach experience. Everything was well organized- the boat left more or less on time (Colombian time, you have to expect things to be a few minutes late) and got us back on time as well, without incident. There were about 50 people in total, but the...

I'm actually not reviewing the place, since we never got there. We booked the tour at our hotel and no one came to get us! The time of our pick up was at 8h. At 8h15 we asked the concierge to call and we were told that they were coming and that we didn't need to bring towels. At 9h...

Recently visited this place for an overnight stay and happy to share our experience. We did a trip that included an overnight stay at the hotel there. Made the reservation by booking, no problems. Arrived to the dock for the transport and after an hour wait we were taken by boat to the island. There is a nice little beach...

Gente de Mar is unlike anything I have ever experienced. The food and property are certainly spectacular, but the staff is what really sets it apart. After a week, it is very clear why this special place is always on the top of the lists across the Cartagena. Thank you!!

My boyfriend and I booked a day at Isla Rosario with Gente del mar. The boat of the company sank and we lost everything (camera, iphones) without having been indemnised yet. Without having received any spontaneous excuses. One person is still missing. We do not recommend to travel with this company.

Do not go to Gente De Mar. We went out to the resort on 20 Dec 16 and our boat capsized and sunk. Tragically, a lady was killed and left all on board traumatized by the experience. This incident occurred due to massive incompetence by Gente De Mar- they hired an incompetent captain who drove too fast, supplied a ill...

The title of the review says it all. It is a great day trip from Cartagena. Go the muelle de la Bodeguita (Bodeguita dock), gate 5. Easy to access. All you need is a bathing suit, a book, sun lotion, sunglasses, and money, and you are ready to go. The beach area is very clean, the whole resort is well...

The room we got was lovely and very clean. The bathroom large and modern while the beds were good. The views were gorgeous with ocean views. The most disappoining thing was that nothing was written down as far as cost. thought we thought they said one price, when we were about to pay, they said another. They promised us breakfast...
