Hotel Review: Hotel Casablanca, San Andres Colombia
My first time being in San Andres, Colombia, and staying at Hotel Casa Blanca. Immediately, on the approach to the hotel, with that white sand, and turquoise water of the beach greeting me, I was already hooked. Upon walking into the hotel, everything is very clean, beautiful art on the wall, just enough plants to give it that hint of greenery, and a waiter with a tray of pina coladas.
I stayed on the 5th floor, when the elevator doors opened, I just said, "ahhhh." Every detail was meant to reveal a more relaxing atmosphere. The color scheme, the simple decor, and the beautifully appointed rooms, all lent to a great hotel experience.
Very large room, I had a view of both the beach and poolside of the hotel. 2 Queen size beds, flatscreen tv, a/c, large bathroom and shower. A "Green" hotel, whereby you need to leave your key in the keypad to activate the lights, etc. A very great thing.
I did not really have many meals at the hotel, however, every morning, breakfast was on point and delicious. Wait staff are more than available to care for your needs as you dine. The food was plentiful, and well prepared. Everything from fresh fruit, to traditional American and Colombian options.
If you're a shopper, you are in the best place for shopping. Because a short walk on the pathway, will take you to ample shopping, restaurants, other hotels and discotheques, tours of the island, as well as the beach.
When next I am in San Andres, this hotel will definitely be on my list!
The only downside I had was the internet connection was not that great, but other than that, the hotel get's 5 Stars from me!
