The place seems beautiful in every way and we wanted to stay there for 3-4 nights and their site showed availability. But I'll tell you, their customer service is slow. It's hard to reach them and they are not responsive. Seeing reviews about screwups with reservations, we did not want to reserve online and make the big and tremendous effort... More

The service at this hotel is really, really good. They were attentive and helpful in all things. Everything we needed, they took care of. Food, massages, trip to other island, etc. We had the best day!

I'd have to say don't come. But first I'll tell you the good stuff. The staff is fantastic. It's romantic. The food is not too shaby. Agua azul (the beach that you can visit during the day) is beautiful. That being said, we got nothing we paid for online. When we arrived, they told us we didn't buy the package... More

Service was VERY slow and laboured. It took 30 minutes to get beer, coke and water from the bar fridge... 45 mins for sangria! However, when the food came it was actually very good and reasonably priced for a 'resort' on a small island. Not great prices but acceptable. Setting was hospitable and clean. The small beach the resort had... More

Sport Hotel Barú is great to relax and enjoy some time at the beach away from city stress! We spent two nights and had a wonderful room, very spacious, clean, AC, with a terrace overlooking the beach and two hammocks. The hotel organises daily trips for free (10' boat ride) to Playa Azúl, which is definitely worth going to! Beautiful... More

pros: the rooms are beautiful an very clean. the staff is amazing-they really make an effort to help you! the food so so. cons: the price is huge. the transportation is not very well organized. you are totally isolated and can go nowhere to buy anything. we liked it-but are not sure if we would return.

Our family of 2 adults and 7 kids spent a wonderful day. The attention we received from the Manager Carlos was excellent. We had a great time in a white sand beach with all the water sports available. We had a wonderful lunch in a marvelous restaurant on the second floor with a fantastic view of the ocean. This is...

Nice trip. Good way to spend the day away from hustle and bustle of Cartagena. Beach at Playa Azul was absolutely beautiful! Not crowded and not as many peddlers bothering, although there are still some. Good bang for the buck! Money well spent

If you want to feel like the staff hates you, by all means book your stay here. It took 2 hours sitting in the dining area with our bags for them to even take us to our room. Luckily, I speak Spanish as well because not one employee speaks English. You could sit out by the beach all day and... More
