Coralina was absolutely beautiful and a place we'll never forget. We stayed in the bungalow which was a pure delight. The food was amazing and all the staff was sweet and gracious. They provided transportation to and from the island on a fast boat that was not crowded. The most that are on the island during the day are 25...

Coralina was fantastic! After a week in Cartagena, we were looking forward to some relaxing island time. Pierre and his gorgeous wife did an incredible job of making us feel at home. The customer service is top notch. The food was easily some of the best and freshest we have had during our stay. The pick up from the boat...

Isla Coralina was an absolute delight - we were introduced to them by Cartagena Connections and were only booked to take a day trip. The minute we arrived, we wanted to stay and they coincidentally had one room left for us. We enjoyed three truly delicious meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) included in the hotel, two bottles of wine, a...

I am not one for writing reviews but after my stay on Coralina Island, and thinking about the stay for several months I felt compelled to do so. I really believe that depending on what your expectations are and comfort level is, you could either have a truly magical time on the island, or feel let down and leave disappointed....

We are travelling around Colombia on honeymoon. Our stay at the Islas del Rosario, and in Coralina Island in particular was to be the romantic, relaxing bit of the trip. Boy how wrong I was. It was the worse experience I've ever had anywhere in the world. I should've realised this was going to be trouble when it took me...

Dear Guest, Please note that your stay ocurred in an unusual moment as the Hurricane Mathew passed north of Venezuela and Colombia. Cartagena does not receive these natural phenomena and they do not reach the islands of rosario; on this occasion, a tail of strong winds reached us. That had not happened in decades. Your specific booking had a special...

I am also overdue with this review but my boyfriend and I stayed overnight at Coralina in April and it was exactly what we needed. We went for an overnight stay to Coralina Island. The island is made out of corals hence the name so there is no electricity and definitely no wifi and they cherish their hot water so...

Thank you for your review. We are happy that you made it. We are glad that you say that Coralina island is a tranquile place over the turqoise waters. In Coralina island, we offer you a close encounter with nature, with comfort and gourmet food. In fact, we only have 6 rooms which makes it very reserved. Most guests are...

I did not like the service towards the end do to the fact that Oscar tried to rob us of an absurd amount of money to leave the island earlier than 3 pm. We booked the most expensive room, the bungalow suite. Spent 500 USD for one night to be charged almost 275 USD (500 thousand pesos) to leave the...

Usually you see pictures of a hotel online and know that what you will get won't be as nice as the pictures. This is not the case here. No picture is as beautiful as the actual place.

Hotel Coralina was one of three options recommended to us by our hotel for a day trip to the islands. Initially I was on the fence about whether this island was a good choice because it does not have a real beach, but ultimately we decided it would provide a more authentic experience without hoards of other tourists - and...
