Hotel Calypso
Ranked #16 of 29 Hotels in San Andres
Reviewed 17 August 2017

Booked a week at this hotel for my trip to San Andres. The photos online are accurate. This is an older hotel on a Carribean Island that is different than most other typical resort destinations. DO NOT LET THAT DISTRACT YOU FROM BOOKING OR TRAVELING TO SAN ANDRES. The hotel was very clean, the lobby inviting and the check in very easy especially for a foreigner. The room was older but very clean and well kept, the bedding average, if you are looking for hot water you will have to be happy with slightly better than freezing cold. The staff was out of there way nice and helpful with excursiones but i would recommend planning ahead what you want to do. There was a buffet style breakfast included with my package that was good and offered your typical eggs and protein selection, various carb selections very fresh and delicious fruit, juice coffee and hot chocolate. Great views from the roof top dining, a pool area that was very relaxing and a good place to sun yourself.

San Andres is a must travel destination but is very much different than other islands. Respect the people, respect the customs and PLEASE respect the beautiful place this is

Room Tip: call and ask , the beauty around you is everywhere

this is a great hotel! good staff and clean rooms! The price is reasonable and our favorite part was the location! Very close to the beach, shops and restaurants. I will definitely stay here again when I return to the island

This is more like a spring breakers hotel. The only good thing about is that it is well located right in the heart of everything.
The hotel is dirty and falling apart. Everywhere you look, there is something that needs taken care of but ignored.
The staff is neither friendly or helpful. They charge an "insurance" fee when you check in but they are unable to explain what it is and they don't even give you a receipt because their systems "are down". The wifi is always "under maintenance".
There is pretty much no service at the restaurant. When you go for breakfast, it is buffet style but when there is something out, there is noone in sight for you to ask.
I would go here again.

+++ Excellent location on beach and near town center. The recently renovated rooms are spacious, large windows, A/C, safe, mini-bar. Friendly staff , good breakfast.
Given the high prices and poor service on the island, this Hotel is certainly above average.
--- It’s some details that suck. From check in you are forced to wear a plastic wrist band 24/7. This is strictly enforced.
No WiFi in rooms. Poor TV signal. Windows have never been cleaned in years (original tape glue still on). From the low cut windows there is a 40m freefall with no protection at all. Beware with children !!!
In bathroom no shower head. Lukewarm water comes from a tube on the wall. Toilet seats are loose in all rooms. You need to hold on to seat cover with one hand to keep it from falling down. According to maintenance, this is normal in the Calypso. Bolts and nuts of the toilet seats are tightened by hand only, no wrench needed. Dear guest, my advice when staying in the Calypso: Don’t complain about little details like 5 body cream bottles, but no shampoo or no toilet paper. . Just relax, enjoy. And make sure you hold onto your toilet cover at all times !

Room Tip: Sea view from standard rooms on South Side. Beware of 3rd floor. Lots of renovation still going on...
