This is a must do if you're looking for some quality beach time around Cartagena. The beaches at Cartagena aren't that pretty. You have to go out to the islands if you want white sand and crystal blue waters. * Location - It's ~2hr boat ride from Cartagena. It's an open air boat and the ride is smooth. The time...

I took my partner to see some places in my country and it was fantastic! The room with an amazing view, the possibility of scuba diving and be able to see the clear water. The service was first class and the food every day trying to give a new experience of Colombian cooking

My husband and I spent 3 nights out of our honeymoon here and it was wonderful! The location says "Cartagena" but it's actually a 2 hour (pretty) boat ride. After spending a few days in the city, this is just what the doctor ordered. This island is remote so most of your day will be lounging on the beach although...

I am writing this review from the property. My wife and I stayed here for 4 days after staying in Cartagena for a few days. Another reviewer commented that this place was not comparable to Langkawi, Koh Samui or Bali and she is correct. I have been to all of those locations several times and this places is way better....

My wife and I tried to find a negative, not easy but here goes. Directions how to the boat to the island are missing from the website. Luckily my wife is Chilean (native spanish speaker) and was able to call and get the information needed. The bus to the dock leaves at 10:30 from the Regatta hotel. There is an...

We stayed in Punta Faro 2 nights. The location is beautiful and it has a relaxing atmosphere. The hotel room was ok but not anything special. The lunch was usually better than dinner. We had a feeling that they were a bit stingy with giving bigger portions. In the evenings they had happy hour, the cocktails are good and cheap....

Wonderful family vacation of our dreams! The private beach was amazing with hammocks IN the warm water. We definitely recommend scuba driving with Daniel. He was a great instructor and the coral reefs were beautiful!

Had a wonderful and relaxing time here with my husband. Many of the staff members are truly excellent. The food was very good, and the location is magnificent. We visited Punta Faro after spending several days in Cartagena and we are so glad we did.

My wife and I had a truly wonderful experience at Punta Faro. It provided an excellent escape from the city life. It was truly surreal to be surrounded only by the sights and sounds of nature. The food was fresh and natural. The room was comfortable. If you want to get away from it for a few days, this is...

We spent three nights at Punta Faro following a couple of days in Cartagena and really can't fault the hotel.
