If you are looking for a luxurious resort like the ones in Caribbean, then don’t come to San Andres; this is a lovely little island that offer very good old style accommodation. This Hotel is apparently one of the best in the island but nothing luxurious. The rooms are spacious but with old fashioned style, we had a problem with the toilet as it wasn’t flashing properly and the bathroom was very smelly. Someone came to fix it but basically we were told that the yellow water was normal. Also, the water pressure in the shower was really low. The buffet food was really good even better that the one from the “A la carte restaurant” The cocktails were really nice specially the one called San Andres. We didn’t try the pool but it looked nice. The beach is good for sunbathe but not to go inside the water, that is why the Hotel offer to take the guest for free to the “Cayo Acuario” where you can enjoy a beautiful beach and crystal clear water while you swim with the fishes.
If you want a relaxing holiday come to Mar Azul as it is in a very quiet area, far from the centre. If you need to go to the centre you need to take a taxi that will cost you $15.000 (colombian pesos) Also, you need to pay for Wifi, we paid $30.000 (colombian pesos) for 12 hours. In regards of the staff unfortunately the only nice lady is the one that is the pier bar, I think her name is Mary, the rest are really rude and if you need to ask information don’t expect them to be nice or smile.
Overall is a good Hotel but it is a shame that Decameron hasn’t invested money to refurbish it and make it more appealing to International Tourists that will expect same quality as the Hotel in the Caribbean.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Between the ocean and the thick brushes surrounding it, the Decameron Marazul rises as a first class paradisiac hideaway near the Orange Hill area in San Andres Island. Only 15 minutes from the airport and on the via San Luis, the resort is surrounded by a mangrove forest with a white sand private beach and a spectacular sea tinted with the entire spectrum of blue, contrasting the garden and ample green areas reserved for guests. From here, you may visit the most beautiful keys in the archipelago such as Cayo Acuario and Cayo Haynes which are located right in front of the beach, as well as Rocky Cay only 5 minutes away, with a beach and the only rocky key where we have an exclusive club for you to keep on tanning during your vacations on the various island locations. ... more less
