10/10 Exceptional

Amazing place to relax from the everyday reality
Beautiful location in a calm bay. Our bungallow had a private pool with seawarer and seaview which we never had in our lifes before. Nice beach and restaurants, beautiful sunsets. Tour to see fluorescent planktons and cooking class included to the price. If you can afford this hotel, then do that!

Weather was amazing! Make sure to bring sunscreen. Loved that the hotel had bug spray and anything else you forgot to pack. Only downfall was some and not all workers were a little rude when they found out you didn't speak spanish. Totally understandable because we're in your country but i knew enough to get by. Just made us feel a little unwanted. But some of the other workers made up for others.

I only stayed for 2 night in hotel las isla , in suit 27 bungalow with sea view ,this place was the most calming and relaxing place ever , there isn’t much do the property if your looking for lots of activities, they provide bikes for you to ride around the property. Also if you didn’t want to ride bike they also pick you in in good carts , we only had 1 issue was our air conditioner stop working in the middle of the night, but they quickly accommodated us to changed rooms almost immediately. The staff here was incredibly, they are the most welcoming and loving people , we had the service in the hotel , the food was delicious, every dish that came out was amazing , I can’t wait to visit again and stay longer next time

6/10 Good

The view from our bungalow was fantastic and definitely a main highlight. The property seems pretty run down for being a five star resort and for the cost. It seems like many corners are cut including cleanliness of the private and property pool which are very muggy and appear to not have chlorine in them. Many activities that the website advertises were not available- we couldn't go to the private island because they said they had a private party on it (which they never told us about at check in), there was no yoga class, no Bioluminescent tour, the beach area is very small and limited. I'm not usually one to complain but we were very disappointed with the accommodations here.

8/10 Very Good

Fun and relaxing but not without flaws
Not what I initially expected after researching and seeing pictures on instagram but still enjoyed the stay however it was more of an eco-resort than I thought. Pros: - Large rooms - Quiet (except nature sounds) - Large property - Fun bikes - Friendly staff - Isleta (private beach island) - Free boat shuttle from Cartagena (mid day) Cons: - Food (some options were good but a lot of it below average.) - Eco (grounds not kept, piled sticks/leaves, thick brush, no landscaping for visual effect) - Shower water was lukewarm to cold - bubbled ceiling/ceiling condensation of treehouse room (however not in pool villa room)

A fantastic stay in a paradise resort. The organisation was superb and staff so professional and engaging. The resort is cut off from the world once you get through the gates which makes is magical. The beach is a tropical paradise. Food at breakfast and dinner fantastic too. The seafood risotto is a must!! Thanks for a wonderful stay.
