Gente Del Mar boat tours staff were very helpful. They picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off at the pier. The Resort was amazing. Views to die for. We did have a cloudy day however this did not take away from the experience. The prices were affordable. Margaritas were well made. We spent the day here and... More

I was there for only a day, but I wish I could stayed longer. It was amazing. The sea and the beach is awesome. The food was really good and great portions. The service is outstanding. Ideal for couples.

Booked through my hotel a day trip to Rosario Islands and ended up here. It was the perfect trip, as I have heard some others did not have as good an experience with Rosario Islands. Our trip was fairly private - just the right number of people for the island (maybe 20 people). The beach was clean, the food was... More

Amazing resort in one of the private islands of isla del rosarios. This property is great because it offers an amazing beach. No local vendors!! So you can relax and take in the view. The food is delicious they provided coconut rice, fried fish, salad and fresh fruit juice. I absolutely recommend this place!!

There are a lot of varying opinions online about which island and then which beach to visit from Cartagena. We ended up coming here through recommendation of our hotel concierge. I was hoping for a smooth journey out, lively people, a relaxing beach with good food and drinks, and crystal clear water. No big deal. This place was magical. Group... More

We did a day trip to Gente de Mar from Cartagena. Having read about the different islands on offer, we came to the conclusion that Gente de Mar was a little more expensive but likely to be less crowded - and this was certainly the case. The resort has 3 beach areas (white sand) as well as a bar (great... More

1. Expensive for what offered and unpolite staff (the pretentious guide who was only interested in selling other activities such as snorkeling) 2. Beach definitely not Caribbean (but nice like every other normal beach) 3. Lunch: imported polluted fish (dirty tables: no choice for drinks) 4. They have a new definition of snorkeling without fins 5. Delays and not enough... More

The beach is really beautiful, the water is calm and super clean. The organization of the day could be improved: to gather all tourists from different hotels in the morning took a long time and we wasted one hour. I felt a bit constrained with the schedule - we got there around 10ish am and by 3pm we had to... More

Terrible service, delays all the day, but… nice beach! In the morning we had a 1 hour delay and the “tour guide” thought it was funny. After that, we arrive to the beautiful hotel, with nice little beaches. I thought it was too many people for those facilities. The food was normal. At the end of the day, we had... More
