We had enough area for everything. To have a kitchen and a fridge was very good. Although we booked a shared bathroom, the room next to us was empty so the whole apartment was just for us. Our flight was at 2:30 am in the night. We could checkout in the morning and leave our luggages in reception and go to the beach whole day. Later on they allowed us even to take a shower, which was awesome! We picked up our luggage at night and went to the airport.
The bathroom wasn’t in a very top quality. The coach in the common area was very dusty. But they didn’t disturb us that much.
Kitchen is well equipped. Location is in walking distance to the airport, to the main beach and to a big supermarket. You don’t need to take a taxi. They have their own scooter rental (80.000 $ a day) to explore the island on your own which we recommend. WiFi was slow but worked.
Contact to the staff was not very personal. Nobody was around when we arrived and left. We always had to search for someone when we needed anything. General advice: if you don’t like mass tourism and duty free shopping you will have a much better holiday experience on Providencia which is completely the opposite of San Andrés.
location, 15 min walk from center
Bed is'nt comfortable: we could feel the wood of the bed base, air conditioner did'nt work properly, was leaking all night so it got all our stuff wet and smelly, the floor was dirty in the bedroom and also wet because of the air con. No toilet paper in the bathroom + really bad smell. We told the clerk about the problems, we asked for a discount considering the situation and he could'nt do anything for us. Therefore, we told him that we would put a bad review on booking and the next day we've received a mail from booking with a noshow notification (maybe an attempt to avoid us writting or review?)
Shared bathroom but the wall between our bedroom and the shared bathroom had an opening therefore we could hear everybody going in and out, smell everything and lighted up all the bedroom. There is no window in the room and the ventilator did'nt work well, so it was so warm and had no air. Bed is'nt comfortable.
From the moment we arrived the hosts were friendly and welcoming and check-in was seamless. The living arrangement was a mix of apartments and hostel rooms in a locked private courtyard. Although that meant living in close proximity to local families, everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating. We had a private double room and shared bathroom, both of which were extremely clean with a no shoes and no sand policy. Towels were provided and fresh linen was offered mid-week. Air- con in room was a blessing. When we enquired about activities on the island, a chap was sent to meet us straight away and subsequently we arranged motorcycle rental with the option to embark on numerous other excursions.
Our room didn’t come with kitchen facilities. Bed was propped up on a wooden platform which did mean we got the occasional flurry of ants joining us in bed.
