Friendly People and Beautiful Nature

Amazing hotel in a great location, you have the beach in front of you, and it takes nothing to walk there, clear and warm water. The hotel has a delicious breakfast, has plenty of food, and also the dinner was delighful. I made a couple of friends with the Staff, they were very friendly and we got some drinks together. I totally recommend you to stay there.

The best you can get in a relatively mediocre island

We arrived to San Andres around 11am on a Sunday morning. Walking outside we were asked if we had a voucher for a shuttle. We did not. We used and apparently we're not given the option. Anyways we found a cabbie that charged us 5 bucks to go 4 feet to the left. Great. We went to check in and asked about staying an extra night and apparently they do not handle the reservations at the hotel itself......? So we would have had to call the reservation line to extend our stay. No thanks. Our room wasn't ready yet but we were given our bracelets and were allowed to begin using the amenities at the hotel. The pool. Awesome. It's HUGE. beautiful and has lots of palm trees all around and plenty chairs to choose from. The beach offers limited chairs and huts but I think that's the island rules not the hotels. Getting a towel tho.... you have to go through the towel Nazi. we were practically lectured with their towel rules. Im surprised they don't offer a beginners course since it's so complicated to take a towel and bring it back. I highly recommend bringing your own towels then having to deal with that. There is a pool bar however it can use a swim up bar. Drinks were pretty good. And they didn't use the cheap liquor either. Lots of varieties to choose from. The food. It is buffet style. So it's a hit or miss. Some dishes were really good. And some were not. Many tables to choose from. They offer fresh juices which were very good. And the coffee is great. Which brings me to the reservations of restaurants. Where do I start. Confusing. Unnecessary. You have to wake up early and get to the pool bar at 7am. They have chairs lined up military style. At 8am they hand out a ticket number, kind of like at a deli. Then the manager will come after you've just woken up early and waited an hour to tell you what restaurants you can pick from and how they are no good. The restaurants are all part of their chain of hotels however the Isleño offers the best food at their buffet. Soooooo then why did I just wait for this ticket to eat bad food? Ripped it up and went to get some coffee. The room was pretty big. Good size bathroom. Hot water and good pressure. Very good AC unit. All in all some of the areas are a bit outdated. But compared to the rest of the island it is the best choice.

They wouldn't even let me take a piece of bread!

Where to start - I usually hate giving a bad review but I feel like I have to on this one!First off, we had to change rooms because the AC in the first one was so loud and obnoxious, they were actually nice about this and upgraded us to an ocean front instead. The room however needs some TLC as it has mold all over the ceiling and the AC is also very noisy.I was very shocked about this but they do not offer guests any kind of chairs or umbrellas at the beach. At about US $300 a night, I'd expect a chair. The pools are nice and full of chairs though. The kicker is actually getting a towel for the pool or beach, we need to sign our life away and are fined if we lose it. But the REAL kicker of it all is the food! I myself will eat just about anything, but not this. Food wasn't very good. I think I only actually ate once at the hotel. Last night I was STARVING and it was about 5:30pm (past snack time and too early for dinner) so I headed to the buffet and tried to grab a piece of bread in the meantime to which I shooed away and forbidden to grab a dinner roll UNTIL dinner at 6:30pm! I was told to wait or go out and buy something (which I had already been doing all along). They do not offer room service either. First hotel I've been to that doesn't offer this. I called for some soda (because my husband and I weren't feeling very well and did not want to walk all the way across the pools to the lobby bar) and wasn't even told "sorry; no we cannot deliver" instead they said ok and waited for about 40 mins to which I called again and THEN I was told no. They do have all drink (alcoholic and not) available since it is an all inclusive but I honestly don't think any amount of booze I could possibly drink here was worth $300+ a night. The service was blah and the food even more blah. Will not stay here again. There's a few other hotels down the street at a much better rate with just about the same amenities.

Need improvements

I spent one week in this hotel, from August 16-22. The check in time was excessive long, we arrived at the hotel lobby by 13:00 hours, but get my room at 5:15 pm. This necessarily need to be improved.The a/c did not work properly, and have complaint to reception desk since day number one. At day number four, was not fixed, and just give up complaining.Restaurant food was Ok, but need more variety. Had two food isles which is not enough for the large numbers of persons.Bar was well assorted, and attention was very good.Entertainment: no disco, but instead an acceptable dancing area. No other kind of entertainment offered.Not worth the money I spent at this resort!!
