Tranquil, Beautiful Oasis

Posted Mar 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
Buddha Villa is a lovely little Oasis. Jozef has a great vision for comfort and aesthetic. Every spot to sit or swim has beauty in all directions. Very quiet and serene - no bustle and crowds here. Jozef is a great host, very accommodating. The couple running operations (Luis and wife) are very nice people but not trained in customer service - the hotel could bring in more money with a menu offering drinks and snacks. However, breakfast is excellent, great coffee. Jozef gave great tips on places to eat. This place is perfect for the couple who want to get away and have private time in a beautiful setting. Not a great place for kids - they will get bored quickly. Very far from El Centro, but Rocky Cay is 3 km away and excellent beach with good food and drinks - we stayed away from the hotel, and went to the locals two up the beach a bit, who helped with everything we wanted and gave us great service without being pushy.

Prachtig hotel in rustige omgeving

Posted Jan 15, 2014
Pros: Sfeervolle buddha-stijl met alle voorzieningen en rustgevende (achtergrond)muziek
Location: Rustige omgeving buiten de drukte van de stad, prima bereikbaar met brommer die van het hotel kunt huren.
Dit prachtige rustgevende hotel, geïnspireerd door Buddha, ligt buiten de drukte van de stad in een rustige omgeving. De eigenaar en het personeel zijn de meest vriendelijke mensen die er alles aan doen om je verblijf zo prettig mogelijk te maken.

Colombian/Island Bed & Breakfast/Boutique Combo

Posted Jun 30, 2012
Pros: The staff. The rooms are nicely decorated. It is a distinct locale for privacy and peace and quiet in contrast to the resorts.
Cons: No TV in rooms yet. No internet available on premises yet. You must go to the Centro and use internet cafes. You will need to rent golf cart/mula.
Location: Located on Km 9 from the centro where most beaches and nightlife is located. Great for single and couples who value privacy and peace and quiet most.
Buddha Villa is a work in progress. A relatively new locale, it is beautifully decorated in an Asian Buddhist motif, and offers the island visitor a departure from the routine resort stay. With a maximum capacity for 10 guests, you have access to three swimming pools, interesting rooms, private sun decks and areas. No children are permitted to stay at Buddha Villa thus offering the solitary adult traveler and couples, real privacy and quiet. Unlike most other resorts and hotels on San Andres which are focused to families and children, BV is an important contrast. The rooms still need TVs, though there is a main one for use in the general open air living room. There is a great selection of DVDs and the TV is wired to DirecTV. There is no internet available yet. It is my understanding the owner of BV is going to address these issues, so it is only a matter of time. Ask when you reserve. There is a saying that any lodging is as good as its staff. I have to commend BV on having one of the best hotel staff in more than five years of travel to Colombia. The three staff on premises are the nicest and friendliest people you will meet. One thing to keep in mind- you will need to rent a golf cart or mula car to get around the island. If you want an alternative to the typical resort stay and you are looking for quiet and privacy on your visit, Buddha Villa is a great option for you. Enjoy.
