Location: Across the road from the beach, 20 minutes drive from restaurants, shops, casinos and discos downtown, 20 minutes from the airport.
We stayed at Decameron Sab Luis two nights. We chose this location because of the beach, but we didn't end up using because it was full of people, instead we went to the beach club. Snacks are only served after 2:30 pm, and its the only beach club that doesn't have parking so we had to pay to park across the steet. Room was small and clean. It was difficult to get a reservation for the restaurant but someone cancelled and we were able to make it and service and food was really good. On the other hand, the breakfast buffet and snacks bar there were rude employees. Also snacks one night were all wet; it seems they moved from the kitchen to the snack bar in the middle of the rain, potato fries you can imagine how they tasted. We visited other two Decameron and they looked much better.
This all-inclusive hotel is kind of old and lacks maintenance, but is fairly cheap and the all inclusive plan makes it easier for you to stay on a budget. I recommend the ground floor rooms, this hotel just has two floors and it is easier to move the luggage. Also, ask for the bungalows' rooms, as they are a bit bigger and close to everything.Be sure to rent a lock for the in-room safe, as they don't provide them for free.
My first time on the island of San Andres and I truly enjoyed it. My room was very close to restaurant and the swimming pools. It did have some hiccups on my first night where they put us into a room with the air conditioner not working and we were sweating inside the rooms. We did complained to the front desk and an engineer came by to check on the issue. The one AC unit serves 8 rooms in the complex we were in and it just wasn't strong enough. (FYI: there are no phones in the room, so we walked all the way back to the front desk). Then at right before we went to sleep, someone in the complex was smoking inside the rooms and not knowing that the air is centralized so everyone in the complex was also inhaling that and our room stunk like cigarettes. We had to walk back to the front desk to complain. Finally the next morning, they did switch us over to a better room and I was very happy. Just be persistent and speak to them nicely and they will do however they can to make the situation better. The beach is amazing. You can kayak, snorkel with fishes and the water is super clean and clear. A bit rocky at first, but we wore our water shoes so it was not a problem at all. The food there is ok. Breakfast was my favorite and dinner service is ok. Lunch service was horrible. Drinks were very watered down and you have to wait for a waitress to serve you drinks and cannot get them yourselves unlike the morning service. All in all, it's an all inclusive resort. Can't really expect too much food quality wise. The chefs manning the grilling station are very nice. For restaurant reservations, book the morning of. We were able to book at an Italian restaurant and food was not bad. As they have others to accommodate to, they give you 1 hour to eat, and we had well enough time. I truly enjoyed this stay as they did step up and helped us with the room change and the beach was fun and clean. I would definitely come back.
We went from June 28 to July 2 and enjoyed every single day there. It was 2 rooms as it's 5 of us. Two adults, an 11 year old, 4 year old, and a almost 2 year old. We loved the Rocky Key private island the hotel offers by making reservations to. Is so nice to go there, is where most pictures are from. Also loved the nightly shows when the ballet group visits. Food is good, and always pleasant. For us it was good as we have different age kids they can be picky so buffet worked ok. As for rooms, where clean and roomy. San Andrés is beautiful and the water and beach eo pretty. Only details we don't like and hope they change, knowing is all Decameron hotels is the reservation for restaurants, you must wake up early to make reservations, by 8 am when it opens line is already long, that ruins all sleep and waste of time. Also in order to use WiFi must request pin every single day of stay. That was crazy, should be in total of stay one request and that should be it. So every day we had to wake up for both. I do want to say thank you to supervisor John Meyer (hope I am spelling name right) as he was friendly and nice with us since day one of our stay. Thank you!!!
My stay at the Hotel Decameron San Luis San Andrea Colombia All Inclusive Hotel and Resorts was the worst! As soon as I arrived on June 24, 2016, I knew that this was a huge mistake. There were no telephones in the room. In order to get wifi and Internet connection you have to go to a room with a card for connection. This was very inconveniencing because I could not keep in xontaft my family in the United States in the comfort of my hotel room. I had to use my cellphone which was charged roaming international calls and my bill was extremely high. There was no shopping mall, no tourist attractions. There was nothing but water. I would never go back and stay at the Decameron in Colombia. I requested a ginger ale at the bar of the hotel and they told me I can only get a cup because it will be used for alcoholic beverages only. This hotel was horrible. I wouldn't recommend anyone stay here!
