Great location, quiet on the beach Not overcrowded
Location. Two of the staff Carlos and Elena where always friendly and helpful if you needed anything or anything went wrong, but too much goes wrong here that’s the problem.
1.Upon arrival we were greeted and sat down to arrange check in, as we sat down two women who were on the premises proceeded to give us massages, we said no twice but they persisted as we were occupied talking to the receptionist. By the end of it this the two women asked for 100,000cop each we said no which began the big debate that went on for an hour between us who do not speak much Spanish, the receptionist and another lady who translated for us. Eventually they settled for 60,000, we were not happy about this because we didn’t have much cash and we thought that the women were part of the Hostal. We were not told anything before arriving to the island either. At the end of the day it is the hostels responsibility not to allow these people on the premises, or to tell them to stop hassling us as we checked in. None of this was done. 2. There is sand everywhere all through the rooms. 3. On the sign it says breakfast starts at 7 and lunch starts at 12. Every day this was late from between 1 and 2 hours. We missed our midday boat because lunch was so late on the last day. 4. They always run out of water for the showers, and often had to ask half way through for them to top it up by hand. 5. The food is not good 6. The walls are paper thin you can here all the rooms around. The floors shake as people walk and even shake when someone decides to have sex in there room. Yes you can here and feel every thrust! Disgusting! Stay here if you would like a terrible experience!
Loved every minute at this hotel! The location was perfect! A little bit further down on the beach so it’s not as busy. The ocean is beautiful! Plenty of sun beds with covers. The staff were super friendly (especially mario!) the owner went above and beyond to make our stay as pleasurable as possible! We stupidly forgot money and he did everything he could so we didn’t have to go all the way back to Cartagena. We were super grateful for the 1st class customer service he provided us! We have a dog and they were so good with her which puts us at ease so much! It was amazing, we will be back (with more money haha)!!!!
Some of the toilets didn’t have seats- and it is a self flush system.. but so is a majority of the island!
The staff were amazing and so helpful, very kind. You could hear waves crashing all night. It was a dream.
It’s on the beach so facilities are very basic but it’s nice enough. Playa Blanca is beautiful but it is expensive so be prepared to pay more for things when you get here. Rooms are basic but that was fine for me, you are literally right in the back and can sit in the balcony overlooking the sea. Would def recommend visiting playa Blanca, such a chill vibe!!
